Sensei Ken started his Martial Arts career in 1983 studying Hung Gar Kung Fu at the age of 13. With diminishing vision, Ken also trained in Shaolin Kung Fu, Aikido, and Jiu Jitsu before settling into training in Shotokan Karate. After losing his vision and becoming completely blind, he achieved the rank of Black Belt in 2011. Sensei Ken specializes in teaching children, and heads up the Dragon Hearts program for the physically disabled at Kitchener Kicks. He is also a Registered Massage Therapist, and a former member of the Ontario Disabled Ski Team. Sensei Ken attributes his many successes in life, and coping with his disability, to the lifestyle and constant challenges the Martial Arts has given him over the years.
