MIKE CARTER, 2nd dan

Mike Carter is an assistant instructor and has been a student at the Ku-ring-gai dojo for 17 years. He is also a NCAS Accredited Level 2 coach.

Mike takes primary responsibility for the Beginners courses to ensure that all new students have a solid basis of understanding from which to develop their Aikido form.

With a background in Asian martial arts, he trained in Budo-Kan karate for seven years in the ’70s achieving Shodan black belt grade. He also trained in Tai Chi Chuan for 2 years before starting¬†Aikido in 1993.

Mike lives on the central coast so every week he has made the one hour trip from his home to Aikido practice – a good example for the many students who think that they have to travel too far to the dojo.
