I have been a member of Northstar for 7 years and graded to 1st dan in 2009, and 2nd Dan in June 2012.
I currently teach at the North Sydney PCYC on Mondays and Saturdays, where we implement a focus on dynamic fitness and crisp, sharp striking techniques.
I am principally interested in the street efficiency of Shinbudo, its ability to prepare the mind for conflict (of any variety) and the simplicity of its defensive and attacking movements.
Philosophically, I am interested in truth, and Shinbudo has introduced me to the responsibility that one has to effect truth in a calm yet committed manner in all areas of life.
When I am not in the dojo I can be found on the athletics track, as I am a competing masters international sprint athlete, or traipsing around after my twins Olly and Sophie, who test my resolve at every opportunity.
