Lyndon Sensei started training at Aberdare Shotokan Karate Club in 1974. Aberdare had a long history in the KUGB and was one of the oldest clubs in South Wales. He passed Shodan in 1978 under Sensei Enoeda, eventually grading
to 6th Dan in 2006. Lyndon Sensei became Chief Instructor for Aberdare for over thirty years producing European medalists and British and Welsh Champions in both kata and kumite.
His karate career is vast including many highlights, none more than training for three weeks solid at the JKA Honbu in Tokyo in 1987. This was a major turning point in Lyndon Senseis karate and helped him tremendously moving forward.
Lyndon Sensei was KUGB Wales Kata Champion for seven years running and Team Kata for ten years. He was first selected for the KUGB Welsh team in 1985 and competed in Kata and Kumite at every World and European Championships from
then until his retirement from competition in 1998.
As part of the KUGB Wales Team Kata he won a European Bronze medal in 1995. He was winner of the KUGB Shotokan up for Kata in 1993 and also took third in 1993 and fourth in 1994 for Kata at the Nakayama
Cup. He also won bronze as part of the Welsh Team Kumite team in the 1986 ESKA Championships and has also won numerous silver and bronze medals for individual Kumite in the KUGB Wales Championships. The Aberdare Team featured in every KUGB Wales Team Kumite
final from 1983 to 1998.
Following retirement from competition karate Lyndon Sensei began assisting with the coaching of the KUGB Wales Squad, eventually taking on responsibility for Kata coaching.
He has also spent a number of years as KUGB Wales Secretary and a short spell as the Chairman of the Welsh Governing Body’s Technical Committee although he much prefers to spend my time training and teaching.
Lyndon Sensei now runs a club in Wenvoe, Cardiff where his wife, who is a 3rd Dan, along with his twin children, who are both Shodan, train.
Lyndon Sensei is now looking forward to this next step in his karate journey...”I am looking forward to my membership of the JKS providing me with lots of opportunities”.
