Toby Kyle
1st Dan Black Belt Shotokan Karate

I have enjoyed martial arts since the age of 11; trying Judo and Kung Fu, before settling into Shotokan Karate.

It took me five years of regular training to reach my grade, seeing this as a great personal achievement.

I have found Karate both an excellent form of fitness and active meditation – it is primarily for these reason I have trained in Karate.

I have joined the Oxford Brookes School Of Martial Arts in order to develop my self defence skill and to learn about other disciplines, to date I have been provided with an excellent insight to both!

I find the School a very enjoyable place to learn and would encourage anyone interested in ‘Chinese’ and other ‘styles’ of self defence to join.
