Paul Norris, 1st Dan

Having studied a variety of different combat systems, Paul undoubtedly developed a love/hate relationship with Martial Arts.  He joined DKK in 2000.

"I came to Daigaku with an unhealthy dose of cynicism expecting to be disappointed yet again, having tried various clubs after giving up on Wado Karate 20 years earlier. In the first lesson the instructor said "You are going to hit and get hurt in a fight, what you don't want is to get knocked out". It was exactly what I'd been waiting to hear all those years, some common sense at last. It was also exactly what I had been hoping for, a nice bunch of people, good solid training, a healthy amount of contact and no bullshit. It endorsed everything I thought about martial arts and how training should be. I was a convert from the first lesson."

Paul holds the rank of Shodan with DKK and currently lives in the Massif Central region of France.
