3rd Dan Black Belt (Zen Do Kai)
Free Style Karate

After 12 months training with SOMA, I personally found Eddie’s Philosophy, style, dedication and approach with the school and all its students, extremely rewarding and enriching. Combining many of the personal development charecteristics of the more traditional martial arts (such as building confidence, self – esteem, discipline, etc) with an emphasis on no-nonsense, practical techniques, Eddie creates a truly unique and stimulating training environment.

This approach, I believe, caters very well for both the experienced and first time martial artists.

As a Brookes University student, I also found training at SOMA a great escape from the pressures of study. Eddie’s effort to create a friendly atmosphere within the school enabled me to establish some great friendships and certainly added another dimention to my time here in Oxford. My only regret in having to leave Oxford, is that I don’t have more time to spend with Eddie consolidating many of the interesting and practical techniques he has shown. Best wishes for ongoing success with the school Eddie. Many thanks for a rewarding, friendly and exciting year of training.

Regards to you and Jill
