James Benn

HEAD INSTRUCTOR - ROWVILLE
Phone. (03) 9763 2220
Sensei James is born and bred Kando. Having started just after turning 6, Sensei James has been part of Kando for over 15 years.

Having progressed through both the Junior Program and Leadership Team Sensei James is the perfect example of what Kando Martial Arts produces. James has been assisting Shihan Paul on the mats almost from the start, which has allowed him to learn first hand not only how to be an excellent practitioner but also a teacher of Martial Arts.

Sensei James has a natural ability to communicate with and educate others. He has always been able to get the best out of those around him. James prides himself on his ability to build a strong relationship with his students as well as creating an extremely fun and entertaining environment within his classes while still always striving for excellence.

To complement the wealth of knowledge of the Kando syllabus, James has trained in both kickboxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) and continues to train in Brazilian Jujitsu.

Sensei James has experienced the benefits of Martial Arts in all his endeavors of life. He fully believes that being a martial artist is more than punching and kicking and is the first to say that without Martial Arts he would not be the person his is today. James’ greatest motivation as an instructor is to allow others to experience the benefits of Martial Arts and in particular being a part of Kando as much as he has.
