Meet Our Instructors

Our instructors enjoy the challenges and rewards of teaching not only a set of physical skills and fighting techniques, but also of instilling core values of martial arts into their students. Values such as discipline, perseverance and integrity are central to martial arts and make a lasting, positive effect in the lives of students.

male instructor
Declan O'Connor

Declan is one of the only people in this country to have represented Ireland in both Traditional Karate and Kickboxing. Declan has achieved a black belt in Shotokan, a 4th Dan black belt in Kickboxing and a black belt in Sport Karate. Declan has been around the block having studied Martial Arts for over 30 years! He has been teaching Martial Arts for the past 20 years and his enthusiasm is contagious. Declan has been there, done that and is now wearing the T-shirt!

female instructor
Katrina O'Sullivan

Katrina originally took up Martial Arts and Kickboxing to keep fit and she never realised that she would be making a career out of it. She loves Kickboxing, MMA training and sparring as well as talking to everyone at the Dojos. Katrina was on the Irish Team for the WKKC World Championships and she has won a bronze medal at the US Open World Championship. She has also competed and won at amateur MMA. Louise is a great role model because she successfully proves that women can do it too and just as good.
