Mike Hardy, or Spud as he is more commonly known, started training with Canton Martial Arts in May 2010.
Mike is currently a Ni Dan / Second Dan with Canton Martial Arts - Karate, and graded to such in December 2016.
He is also a FIRST Kyu in Kobudo weapons.
Along with his wife Denise, Spud is a full time instructor with Canton, and oversees the running and teaching of the Canterbury, Folkestone & Hastings Dojo's.
He trains with Kigen as a personal full time student twice per week. This dedication to his own training shines through. This dedication has helped Mike lose over 6 stonne in weight since his Karate career started.
Mike's passion for Karate, and everything the Canton system has to offer comes across in abundance. His dedication to all of his students, and their families, is beyond what is expected.
This alone makes him, and his wife, an outstanding teaching pair.
Mike continues to train, learn and compete, and very much sets the trend and is an example to his students.
Mike Hardy, with everything that he has achieved, and wishes to achieve for Canton Martial Arts, is the perfect role model and a great ambassador for the club.
