martial arts, shotokan karate, self defence
Les Lockley - Sandan
name is Les and I began training when I was 19 years old. I started to
learn karate for many reasons, one of which was that a friend of mine,
who had been training with Sensei Conroy for many years, suggested
that I visit the karate club. Other reasons for starting, was the need
to toughen myself up through physical training, and the desire to
develop self discipline, which in turn, would allow me to gain
knowledge of the martial arts.
reached Nidan grade in August 2006, I intend to carry on training
for many years to come, for what I have learned during past years is
just a small amount of what there is to be achieved!
