Carl McKenzie, 2nd Dan

Carl started training in 1981 in Kyokushinkai karate - a style which specialises in full contact 'knockdown' tournament fighting. He competed for a number of years in the British Squad at both national and international levels. In 1996 Carl switched to Goju-Ryu and joined Daigaku Karate Kai.


"I wanted the opportunity to develop beyond the hard or 'Go' element of karate and to compliment it with the softer 'ju' side.This is a more subtle and technically challenging area, but ultimately, the combination of the two, offers a more complete fighting system"


Carl was badged in 1997, holds full Shodan grades in Kyokushinkai and Goju and after completing his 30 Man Kumite at Summer Camp 2000, was subsequently awarded the rank of Nidan. Carl currently lives and trains in Cambridge UK.
