Michael Christian, 2nd Dan

Michael started to train in Goju Ryu karate in 1993 under Sensei Dan Lewis in Bristol. After returning overseas and dabbling in other styles, he completed the circle and returned to Goju Ryu and Daigaku in 1999.

"The first two rules of personal growth are: one - it will be difficult, and two - it will be worth it. 'I think of these rules each time I step into the Dojo. When I leave class, having experienced the very high standards Sensei Mulholland sets himself his students, I am aware that I have achieved a small personal success and have taken another step towards a worthwhile goal' self-betterment through Martial Arts. When challenged by the undoubtedly tough training regime, I am reminded of an old Chinese proverb: Be not afraid of going slowly, be afraid of standing still".

Michael achieved the rank of Shodan at Summer Camp 2004 and completed his 30 Man Kumite and Nidan grading in 2007.
