Sensei Jason Marquis
Sensei Jason Marquis, 3rd Dan, has won National and British Championships multiple times, represented England at numerous events around the world and won a World Championship in IKU.
Sensei Jason began his Karate journey aged 5 at Grundy Park, with Sensei Bob Kealing in Shotokan style, because at that time he was obsessed with the Power Rangers. Jason created a strong foundation with Bob, but grew an appetite to compete. He joint the Hoddesdon Karate Club with Sensei Nick Markwick and at just aged 8 won the BASKA Hertfordshire Open. He achieved his 1st Dan at the age of 10.
Sensei Jason's goal was to represent England on the world stage and so he looked to move club one last time. At 12 years old he found UKA and was introduced to Sensei Ian Cuthbert, who helped him make the dream become a reality!
Sensei Jason's personal motto is; You can do anything you set your mind to. "We all have different goals. With a strong, active mind you can achieve it. Believe in yourself and surround yourself with people that support you. That is what I love about UKA, working together to help you become the best version of you!"
