‘The old man of the club' granddad of two, Peter Katsis.Peter first became interested in martial arts whilst still at school where he took up judo and reached brown belt.Peter's interests went in a different direction when he first watched the TV series ‘Kung Fu' in 1972, he trained in Wado Ryu under Master Tatsuo Suzuki in Judd Street but didn't enjoy it, he then transferred to Ishin Ryu under Will Verner in Hackney but left after reaching green belt (1973) due to work and family commitments (getting married).Peter's interests in martial arts were reawakened recently, after a 30-year break when a work colleague mentioned he trained in Shaolin Kung Fu.Peter joined the club, based in Walthamstow, and trained initially under Sifu Mark Browne who then arranged for Shaolin monk, Master Shi Heng Long to train students.
...
Learning to do cartwheels and back-flips at his age eventually took their toll when Peter sustained a ruptured achilles tendon during training and couldn't train for many months.
Peter joined NLSK in 2005 but couldn't commit fully as he was studying towards a Master of Science degree in Health and Safety.As this is now out of the way.Peter wants to concentrate on his goals in martial arts 1) achieve his black belt before he is 60, 2) win a gold in kata and 3) win a medal in kumite.Peter believes "the way Sensei DeBono trains us and past competition results, all these goals are achievable, even for someone of my age".
Peter attended his first competition May 2007 with the squad at the International Shobu-Ippon Open in Guildford, competing against 17 others, although he did not win a medal, he did get through to the second round which is an achievement in itself.WATCH THIS SPACE!!!
