Introduction

James Harris is a 3rd Dan in Teshinkai Karate

Inspired by the great 70's/80's martial artists, James started his journey with Nippon Karate (a combination of Karate and Thai Boxing) at the age of 14. By 17, James had achieved Shodan (black Belt) and at the age of 18 was running the dojo, both junior and senior classes at the local YMCA. Competing in both Kata and Point Scoring kumite tournaments. James' early highlight was winning a Victorian Open Black Belt kumite tournament. Having to further his working career, he ceased martial arts training at the age of 22.

In 2007 at the age of 35, James began full contact training with Kyokushinkaikan and in 2010 switched across to Te Shin Kai Karate where he trains and now teaches.

James enjoys the spiritual and health aspects of karate as he says "it never stops challenging me to be the best I can be. Being somewhat a perfectionist, I continually look for smarter more efficient ways to implement effective powerful technique with the least effort required."

James has a strong passion to train those around him to be the best that they can be also, so that they can enjoy and be at peace with their life.
