Andrew Herbert


  • Grade: Sandan
  • Training since 1978

Andrew first became interested in martial arts in the mid 70s learning judo but then joining a karate club in 1978 training in Shukokai Karate in Bradford where he achieved 5th Kyu. He then changed to Shotokan Karate training regularly at two clubs in Manchester. However, after moving to London work commitments made it difficult to train regularly and it wasn’t until his son was old enough to join Tring Shotokan Karate club that he returned to the art. Both of Andrew’s children, Joshua and Samantha also train regularly at the club.

Thoughts on karate

 Karate is a journey with the enjoyment coming from the journey and not the destination.
