Peter Goodman

Safeguarding Officer


I started training at Kyoto in 2013 when I moved to Bristol. I enjoy the art and science of karate as well as the exercise, and coming to karate as an adult has also helped to teach me a beginner's mindset. At our club we take our responsibility to look after the safety and wellbeing of our younger members seriously, and it's a privilege to share in that responsibility. Outside the dojo I am a teacher and a family man with two amazing kids.

Pete gained his 1st Dan in 2018.
