Specialization/s: Martial arts coach,


A student of Karate for 20 years, as an instructor I feel rewarded when I see the satisfaction students (Kohai) achieve when they attain new skills or improve on existing ones.
I firmly believe that every student should and will feel better about themselves when they walk out of my classes than when they walked in - both physically and mentally.

  • I have known Sensei Robert Waterson for over 20 years. Sensei Rob has always been a leader and a very confident coach, brought about by his skills in the Education Department and other sporting codes. Sensei Rob is at home at the front of the class passing on his skills to others and by following and passing on traditional karate principles. I highly recommend Sensei Robert Waterson as a coach and mentor!
