Here are Strike Martial Arts’ instructors and staff members.
Master Shane – 6th Dan
Master Shane Mckeahnie has been training in the martial arts for over 33 years, and has trained with some of the best martial arts practitioners both nationally and internationally. Master Shane has many years of experience with a number of different martial arts including Taekwondo, Boxing, Jujitsu, Philippine Combative’s and Krav Maga. He has participated for over twenty five years as either competitor or coach in WTF style Taekwondo and Karate.
Master Shane is a 6th Dan in Taekwondo and has also achieved the rank of 2nd Dan Black Belt in the Philippine martial arts; he travels back to the Philippines every year to train with his own Master Instructor and Mentor, Master Julius Melegrito. Master Shane believes you must be a good student before you can become a great teacher, and that is why he still remains a student of the martial arts today.
Competition has always been a big part of his career which is why he still enjoys competing locally and internationally in both Taekwondo and Karate, having recently won the Pan pacific Masters games and winning a silver medal at the US open in Orlando Florida USA.
At Strike MA all the instructors understand that most people don’t want to compete, that’s why we focus on the individual students so they can achieve their goals.
