Simon Bligh began karate as a 14 year old in 1974 because he wanted to be a hybrid David Carridine/Bruce Lee.
He was lucky to train in Liverpool England which had very strong Shotokan dojo of the KUGB . In 1983 he moved to London and became a member of Enoeda Sensei’s Marshall St dojo. He remained there until it closed 20 years later, except for a year living, working and training in Japan in the early 90s.
He met Scott Langley Sensei in 2003 joined the JKS and a close friendship developed leading to 5 training trips to Japan. He has a wealth of experience in Shotokan Karate and believes in “Karate for everyone, for all your life”. Simon is also a full time comedian and as such his teaching style is very enjoyable and relaxed whilst still delivering top quality karate. He is now Technical Director of HDKI GB.
