Ben Campbell 5th Dan Shotokan – Assistant Midlands Regional CoachKaisho Karate Alliance Chief Instructor

Assistant Midlands Regional Coach

Started karate at the age of 7 under the tutelage of my father Paul Campbell 7th Dan. Selected by Ticky Donovan OBE in 1995 for the Junior European Championships in Bratislava, where I gained my first individual medal.

Went on to become multiple British and English Champion and also under 21 Junior Captain under Vic Charles OBE.

Continued to compete Internationally at senior level for England on many occasions and was one of the Lottery funded athletes until serious injury halted competing.

2011 I decided to start my own clubbing Halesowen, 2014 I made the leap to start Kaisho Karate and have loved every minute of it. The frustration and passion that I'm unable to show on the tatami myself, is channeled through my students and all that are around me to make sure all athletes reach their full potential.

Outside of karate I’m happily married with 4 beautiful children. I’ve got an I.T. banking background and to be totally honest, I’m a bit of a geek and love my tech and gadgets.
