Shihan Dean Fern

School Owner & Chief Instructor

Dean started training in 1983 after gaining an interest in Martial Arts after seeing it on a kids TV show. He liked the idea of learning the skills he saw and took it up as an alternative to other sports such as football which he didn't particularly enjoy. His parents also thought it would help with his general lack of confidence.

He is a 5th Degree Black Belt
