Simon Kluth, 4th Dan

Simon started training in Wado Ryu Karate in 1985 under Toru Takamizawa and achieved Brown Belt three years later. He tried a variety of martial arts before Goju Ryu under Chris Rowen and eventually graded to Sandan before starting at DKK in 2000.

“Two things inspire me at DKK , the vast knowledge base and holistic approach to combat (encompassing grappling, strikes , kicks and armed combat) and the desire in all members from white belt right the way up to 7th Dan Shihan's Mulholland and Lewis to push themselves one step further in the martial arts.”

Simon was badged to Sandan DKK in 2018 and achieved his weapons grade Yondan (4th Dan) in 2021.
