    This year I'm hoping to broaden my horizons by travelling the country a bit to train with as many different karate instructors as I can. I'm only really interested in Goju-ryu, and kyokushinkai and it's off-shoots, so can anyone recommend any instructors who would be worth training with?

    Steve Morris isn't a karate instructor. He is however - from what I've seen and been told by people I've trained under (Terry O'Neill, Harry Cook, Dave Hazard, Simon Oliver and my own instructor Steve Cattle) - the #1 person to train with if you want to learn how to fight.

    I'd heard that Steve Cattle had died. Is he still with us and I'm thinking of someone else? :confused:

    Just to add to that, chief instructor is sensei Frank Perry, Dan kyoshi and his assistant and main contact person at the headquarters is sensei Carol David, dan renshi.

    Steve has passed away. I trained under him as a member of the ESA and under his top student as a member of SRKH (Taiji Kase's group) for 20 years.

    I no longer practice karate.

    One more to add Sensie Paul Perry ( we do Shotokan but you might like the we he trains ) . Also try the link for Enfield Town as it is run by the number two in Jin Sei kai Sensie Barry Shearer 7 dan and Paul Shephard 5 dan.
    Ps We also do Goju kata's as well as Shotokan, I train at Enfield :)

    Normally at beginners level we go through the moves and katas for our style and then more advanced we do free sparring and pad work alot also. Our classes are very different every time as our senseis and sempais like to vary them. Also, depending on the day a different sensei (not always our assistant chief instructor Carol)takes the classes so they also bring their own style into the teaching.

    Should pass by our dojo one time if you feel like it. Guests are always welcome.

    Okinawa Goju Ryu

    If you're interested in Okinawa Goju here is the Dojo/Instructors link from the EGKA:

    I would recommend any of the senior instructors, contact details are on the web-page. EGKA also holds regular Gasshukus with senior instructors from the IOGKF, if you're interested it would be worth contacting EGKA admin.

    Well it depends on where you train, you can train at the head quters or with one of the senior instructors.
    We have sparring lessions, basic lessions, kata lessions and circuit training lessions
