Dave Paine started training in Wado Ryu Karate in 1982 at his home in West Wales. When he moved to Winchester after his degree he continued his karate training by joining the KUGB Chandlers Ford Shotokan Karate Club in 1990 under the then chief instructor, Robin Lomax (now 4th dan).

He was awarded shodan (first level black belt) in 1993 and, shortly after the departure of Robin, became chief instructor. Dave moved to Wantage in 2004 and immediately joined the Wantage Karate Club. Dave currently holds the grade of yondan (4th dan).

He has now been practising karate for over 30 years and teaching adults and children for over 20. He has an enhanced DBS certificate and is an instructor and grading examiner for the TSKA (Traditional Shotokan Karate Association) which is affiliated with NAKMAS (National Association for Karate and Martial Arts Studies), the largest martial arts association in the country and the only one to hold a British Standards Quality Kite Mark.

During Dave’s karate training, he has trained under, among others, Senseis Keinosuke Enoeda, Andy Sherry, Aidan Trimble, Terry O’Neill, Bob Rhodes, Frank Brennan, Italo Castellaro, Richard Amos, Peter Manning and Iain Abernethy.

Dave has been DBS checked in accordance with NAKMAS policies and holds a NAKMAS Equality Awareness Accreditation.
