Dave Hughes

Resident Instructor at Stratford Upon Avon clubs

I began training in Shotokan karate at Sensei Ronnie Christopher’s dojo at Cocksmoors Woods in 1987. In 1990 I was selected to join the senior squad and had the pleasure to represent the club at many competitions. I achieved my black belt 1st dan under Sensei Enoeda in 1992.Since when, under Sensei Christopher’s watchful eye, my training to be an instructor began. In 2000 I helped to set up the Stratford upon Avon clubs, and have been teaching there on a twice weekly basis ever since.

In 2005 I passed my 2nd dan under Sensei Christopher and Sensei Cummings, and am currently training for my 3rd dan.
