With an Irish mother, a Welsh father and a stormy adolescence in London, Roger turned to Michelle, his girlfriend and martial arts to move him away from a darker past.

Employed by the UK Immigration Service in Dover he developed this interest and when the Foreign Office posted him to Jamaica he discovered Seido Karate and won his black belt.

He pursued a successful career in intelligence, working with the security and law enforcement agencies across Europe. He studied in New York under Kaicho Nakamura, the Grand Master and is now the UK representative and branch chief of Seido Karate.

This is his story.
