Sempai Steve Brown - sandan (3rd dan) Senior Instructor

I started my karate journey in London England in 2005 at the ripe old age of 35. My youngest son started lessons and after a couple of weeks of the Sensei suggesting I join in too that I decided to try it for myself. I have been hooked ever since. After immigrating to Calgary, Canada in 2008, I continued my training with Sensei David Jones in the Northeast of Calgary and successfully gained my Shodan (1st dan black belt) in 2009. In 2010 I switched clubs to train with Sensei’s Phillip and Nancy and to help out with growing the club and with instructing in the beginner classes.

I am currently a ‘C’ level accredited judge and achieved my Sandan (3rd degree black belt) in 2015. I continue to compete in annual Provincial and National tournaments as I feel it helps to make me a better judge. My achievements are as follows:

  • Bronze medal in kumite senior (45-54) division - ISKF National Championships, Vancouver 2016
  • Silver medal in kumite 18+ division - ISKF Alberta Provincials, Edmonton 2017
  • Bronze medal in kumite senior (45-54) division - ISKF National Championships, Saskatchewan 2017
  • Bronze medal in kata & kumite 18+ division - ISKF Alberta Provincials, Red Deer 2018
  • Gold medal in kumite senior (45-54) division - ISKF National Championships, Calgary 2019

I am passionate about my karate and get a great sense of satisfaction at watching the growth of the students throughout their training.

I have run my own business since the age of 16 and my hobbies include karate, golfing, web design, DYI and spending time with my family camping.
