Steve’s training commenced in the 1980’s with local instructor Warren Haseldine. Coupled with the leadership of Alan Burdett (Kyoshi-Shihan, 8th Dan), Steve was able to make great progress in his knowledge in the technical aspects of the art and also in the coaching development for both himself, the Association, and at State and National level with the Australian Karate Federation.
