Instructor - Sensei Kirby Wotherspoon

Nidan Grade

Kirby Wotherspoon

I began karate with my Dad when I was 7 years old. It was so much fun being able to learn and practice a sport with my Dad and a great way to spend time together while I was young.

I have been doing karate now for more years of my life than I haven’t been doing karate! Jyoshinmon has become a second family to me, and through practicing karate I have learnt skills that have helped me greatly in other areas of life, such as school and work. Through karate I have also been fortunate to do a lot of travel, competing in countries like Canada, Spain, Morocco and Malaysia.

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Science at The University of Auckland and working part time.
