Ben ‘Flash’ Gordon joined Canton in 2014 after observing the progress made at the club by his own children who joined the Canterbury branch earlier that year.
Ben is a naturally gifted Martial Artist who has previously studied Shotokan Karate and some Aikido.
Ben is respected throughout the club and has assisted the teaching of the ‘Little Samurais’ as a Sempai, for some Months within the Canterbury Dojo.
He was selected to be on the Instructor Training Programme which he excelled at, and when his fulltime job allows he is always there to cover classes for other instructors.
Ben has competed, and won, many times and still does at every opportunity. His excellent technique, a go hard attitude has also won him many 'Best In Group' trophies at club gradings.
He is keen for people to be inspired by his enthusiasm, and thirst for knowledge, which makes him a fabulous instructor.
Ben is the quintessential ‘Karate Nerd’ who is forever seeking to advance his own knowledge and development.
One of the most enthusiastic on the teaching team, and one of the ones to train with for a full mind, body & soul workout.
