Show Notes

This week the Motivated Martial Artists Jackson White and Gavin Cook talk to 8th Degree Black Belt and 3x Australian Champion Rodney Lockyer.

Rodney has been training in martial arts for over 32 Years.  His first encounter of martial arts was in Bruce Lee's Enter The Dragon this inspired him and his friends to practice moves in their back gardens until they found a club at the US army Base around the corner from their town. The training he grew up with was very traditional and based off Korean Army Style Chuyến Quan Tae Kwon Do because his instructor fought in the Korean War. This initial introduction to martial arts gave Rodney very grounded and philosophical martial arts roots which he believes still lives in him today and is the base of his dedication.

Some of Rodney's accolades include 3x Australian Champion, International Medallist, 4x State Champion, Bronze Medal European Team and Open World Championships Team, Qualified State & National Referee (Level 1), State Coach and Former Australian Team Coach.

 Rodney is now one of the Directors of ATI Martial Arts and CLJ Taekwondo Pty Ltd Group he has been an instructor for 28 Years and is a Level 2 Coach NCAS as well as being the Australian Representative for ATI Martial Arts.

Tune in this week to hear some inspirational stories from Down Under.
