I first started in Wado Ryu karate when I was 25 years and living in Perth, Australia. I had previously done some boxing at a club in Leamington Spa. When I got back from Australia in 1970 I watched a taekwondo demonstration by GM Ki Ha Rhee. I was really impressed seeing people break bricks, wood and do flying kicks. . GM Rhee was forming a new club in Leamington so I decided to join.
