Squad Coach:

Leon Gordon
Position: SKCE Squad Coach
Current Grade: 3rd Dan

Leon Gordon started training in martial arts at 10 years old. He began with judo. However, within a few months of starting judo, he decided he wanted to be able to train in something which involved punching and kicking…

So, Leon started training with Sensei Eric Pich at the age of 10 alongside other notably successful competitors such as Mohammed Salih and Roisin Campbell, at the Vale Farm dojo in Wembley.
Leon eventually gave up judo (he began playing semi-pro football!) but he had by then won a place on the England Squad and was ranked 2nd in the UK.

1st KUGB Children’s Nationals 12-16yrs
1st KUGB Shotokan Cup 12-16yrs
1st KUGB Grand Slam 4 Nations 12-16yrs

3rd KUGB Enoeda Cup 16+yrs
1st JKAE Nationals 2007 in both Kata and Kumite
1st JKAE Nationals 2009 Kata, Kumite, Team Kumite (2nd Team Kata)

Leon was awarded the Ambassador’s Cup by an Official from the Japanese Embassy in 2009/2010

In 2013 he became SKDUN World Kumite Champion

Leon now wants to pass on his knowledge to the next generation and as Squad Coach for SKCE, is committed to helping to develop future champions.
