"IT'S NOT WHETHER YOU
GET KNOCKED DOWN, IT'S WHETHER YOU GET UP"
It is a real pleasure to introduce you to our class Instructors. All of our Instructors started training when they were 5 years old, hold a minimum rank of Shodan (1st Dan black belt) and have been training for a minimum of 8 years.
Sensei Rebecca Merrifield (nee Dobson)
Sensei Rebecca began training at the age of 4 by copying her father, Terry, as he trained at home. Seeing Rebecca's continued interest, Terry took Rebecca to train with Shihan Pat McGregor at the JKF Goju-Kai dojo at the Central Christchurch YMCA and that was the start of her Karate career, she has been training ever since.
