Sensei Terry Lyon
Sensei Terry Lyon has devoted most of his life to the practice and teaching of Karate, specifically in the style of Traditional Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate. Over the past forty years he has trained in Japan and most parts of Asia. He was graded to 3rd Dan by Sensei Morio Higaonna in New Zealand in 1987. Later that year he joined good friend and instructor Sensei Graham Ravey (now 9 th Dan) in starting the Traditional Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate Do Association (TOGKA). The association was formed to preserve the unchanged origins of this style of Karate as a traditional martial art. Sensei Lyon was graded to the rank of 6th Dan by Sensei Graham Ravey in 2014.
On the outside one would not suspect that Terry Lyon is a Karate expert. Easy going, pleasant and reserved are not words one readily associates with a 6th Dan black belt with forty years of experience.
There are many modern day martial arts masters in the world today. Pick up any martial arts magazine or book these days and you’ll read a story by a Grand Master of 8th, 9th, or 10th Dan in some style no-one ever heard of.
Sensei Terry Lyon of LYON-KARATE.COM however has done the hard practical years on the wood floor where it really counts.
For the past 40 years he has travelled all over the world, in search of the best instructors to further his knowlege and training ability. At the same time he ran his own professional full time dojos and Martial Arts Supply business (Lyon Martial Arts Supplies). During four decades of training, Sensei Lyon has taken countless classes and seen numerous students come and go, with many going all the way under his expert teaching and guidance to Black Belt including second, third and fourth Dans.
In additional to his many years of teaching Terry has found the time to write an E-Book titled “The 7 Most Effective Self Defense Techniques” in which he uses his extensive experience to provide simple, effective techniques that anyone can use to defend themselves. Terry is currently working on several books, including the highly anticipated “Secrets of Karate Revealed!”
Sensei Terry Lyon is now the highest rated instructor in Australia in the Traditional Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate Do Association.
