Leigh started training in "traditional" karate and after obtaining numerous dan grades. Leigh and his instructor Mike Judd 5th Dan, became disillusioned with the primary focus on "sport" karate and lack of real world application to the kata applications which were common place in their association and in the larger karate world at the time. His attention to detail has shown me how there is always room for improvement. He is flexible with lesson content but structured with how he teaches, finding methods that work for me. He motivates me to work to the best of my ability and I always have a great time. I would recommend Leigh to anyone, young, old, beginner or advanced. A skilled practitioner, teacher and writer. Leigh gets the practical application of karate and the underlying theories in a way that few others do. Train in high quality kata applications which are within the law and effective in real life.
