Shaun started his karate training, after being introduced to the art by his older brother Andy at the age of 11. During his teenage years he was selected to fight for the B.A.S.K.A Junior England squad and was trained by Shihan Sensei Greg Wallace 8th Dan attending training in Bow in London. He competed with the Renshinkai A team and won many trophies as a junior. Since that time he has won the Peterborough, Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Derbyshire and Bedfordshire Opens Championships on numerous occasions and won a bronze medal in the English Open Championships in Ilkeston in 2003 and a Bronze in the European Martial Arts Open Southern Series in 2004.He has fought the former world kickboxing champion Jason Ross on three separate occasions, and been victorious in all three fights. After a major hip operation he finally returned to competitions in 2008 winning Silver in free sparring in the Black Belt International Championships held in Doncaster.

Andy Kisby 4th Dan
Andy stated his karate training, whilst working at British Sugar in Peterborough where a small club started in 1981.During a Karate competition in the early eighties Fighting the British champ he freakishly damaged his knee ligament resulting in him taking time of from training. Since that time he has made a full recovery and has been graded through the ranks by Sensei Charles Mack 7th Dan to Black Belt 4th Dan. He teaches and trains regularly in Peterborough and is well known for his love of push ups, star jumps and horse riding stance (Kiba dachi) much to the joy of the rest of the class!
Rob Tyler 4th Dan
Rob started his karate training in the mid eighties at the local Renshinkai karate club before eventually joining the Peterborough Shinboku karate club. He has competed in many competitions in the past in free fighting (kumite) and Kata and won the Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire titles. He is often known as the joker of the pack and once had a crucial point deducted whilst fighting Shaun in the Lincolnshire Open for showboating and trying to give him a kiss. He is a crucial part of the senior instructors not only with his technical skills but his talent of taking the micky, keeping everyone’s feet firmly on the ground. The Kung Fu barber had his finest hour so far at the Malympex Martial Arts World Championships in 2008 winning Gold in both traditional kumite and team Kata along side Liam Ellison, also helped coach Jo Wright to Gold’s in Free fighting and traditional kumite, Liam Ellison Gold’s in Free fighting and Kata, Warren McSkelly Gold’s in Free fighting and Kata, Sidney Thomas a Gold and Silver, Rizwana Akhtar a Silver and Ryan Overson a Bronze. It seems he not only can win the Gold’s but his coaching skills by the side of the mat can make all the difference!
Graham Fisher 3rd Dan
Graham as with Shaun and Andy began his Karate career at the British Sugar Renshinkai Karate Club in the early eighties. In 1985 in an inter club friendly at British Sugar (an event where half a dozen people had to go to hospital) Graham himself was probably the cause of most! He is renowned for his strength and power and is affectionately known as Granite Graham by the other instructors due to his love of roughing it up.” It is slightly unnerving when you catch someone with a kick or punch very heavily whilst sparring to have them smile back at you” says Shaun. He is an excellent instructor, who has the patients of a saint especially with the kids.
