Diccon Yamanaka, 1st Dan

Diccon began training in 1991 in Lau Gar Kung-Fu. He continued until 1996, before switching to Goju-Ryu Karate-Do with the YKKF in Canada. Upon returning to the UK he trained in Ju-jitsu before joining Daigaku Karate Kai in 1999.

"Goju-Ryu provides the best set of useable techniques of any martial art I have encountered, all of which are preserved in the kata of the style. This combination of modern self-defense and traditional training is ideal for those seeking a useful system that also contains great depth. Training with Sensei Mulholland is hard, but the physical and mental rewards are great."

Diccon obtained his Shodan Black Belt in Goju-Ryu from the YKKF and was subsequently badged at Daigaku's Summer School in 2001.
