mike-hewsonMike Hewson, 1st Dan

Mike has a wealth of knowledge and experience well beyond his grade of 1st Dan.

He has trained with many of the UK’s top Karate instructors and is a bit of a traditionalist, which is great as it keeps us honest to our roots.  That said, he keeps an open mind to new developments.

He trained alongside Charlie years ago at the Frome Karate Club (now closed), and joined Charlie as co-instructor when Charlie opened Holistic Karate.



Nick Pratt, 1st Dan

20161212_193326Nick has trained Karate on and off for many years.  He achieved purple belt then stopped for a number of years due to commitments.  When he was ready to restart training again, he tried several local schools before coming to Holistic Karate.  He was drawn to the practical approach and more relaxed fluid technique.

He has enjoys the basics and likes getting down into the fine detail.  Nick is a good combination of “old school” intensity, blended with the more progressive and effective whip like technique.
