Renshi Dave has been training in Shorin Ryu Karate since he was very young, and is a strong believer in earning your acheavements. Hard work and using full technique and proper force during all training possible is important, and Renshi can often be heard saying, "Practice, Slow Down & Concentrate!"
After teaching at and operating different karate schools, Renshi opened Wattie Karate in Winchester, Ontario in 2013. Following expansion into Cornwall, Ontario in 2016, the program has continued to develop! Connections continue to grow in both communities and areas, as new students have continued to enter the program.
Honoured to receive the title of Renshi from in 2020, Renshi Dave continues to push all Wattie Karate students to learn, grow, strengthen and improve their fighting skills.
