Student Spotlight – Shogai Dojo

Hello, my name is Harvey and I train at Shogai Karate Dojo in South Leverton for about 3 years. I’m 2nd kyu and training to pass my 1st kyu grading. However, I was unwell recently, suffering from glandular fever and I tried doing my grading for my 1st kyu without I had glandular fever; because it made me very tired I ended up failing it. When I eventually found out what I had I wasn’t allowed to do karate for at least 6-8 weeks. That period is nearly over and I’m very excited to get back to it.

I have competed in many competitions and had quite a lot of success, accumulating 4 gold medals, 2 silver medals and 5 bronze medals. I’ve had the most success with kumite which has led me to become a member of the HDKI England squad.

My favourite technique is mawashi geri and I’m not too sure why, I just like it. My favourite kata is Heian Yondan.
