Mr. Steve Anderson is widely known as the greatest sport karate fighter of all time. From 1980 until 1993 Mr. Anderson won more sport karate tournament titles and grand championships than anyone in the history of sport karate. In fact, over a 12 month period between 1984 and 1985 Mr. Anderson dominated the NASKA circuit to such an extent that he went the entire year without a single loss in the semi-contact division -- this is after fighting in tournaments across North America virtually every weekend. In the late 1980’s Mr. Steve Anderson moved up to Ottawa, Canada to open a school and start his own martial arts system. Over the years Mr. Anderson has trained and produced dozens of highly successful martial artists including the WKA president Ben Stewart.
Mr. Anderson is an expert in most stand-up fighting arts and was a successful All-American collegiate wrestler. He is a 4-time WAKO world champion and the only competitor ever to defend his WAKO title back-to-back 4 times. During his competition career Mr. Anderson competed in upwards of 50 tournaments per year over a span of many years and was present as a competitor, coach, referee or promoter at more martial arts tournaments than anyone in the history of sport karate. His wealth of knowledge in the areas of competing, coaching, promoting and refereeing will undoubtedly give the added “punch” that WKA Canada needs to raise our team to the #1 country status we enjoyed a few years ago.
Mr. Steve Anderson currently owns and operates World Champion Steve Anderson Karate in Ottawa, Canada and conducts seminars all over the world on kickboxing and karate. His training DVD collection will be available at all WKA Canada circuit events.
Mr. Anderson is looking forward to working one-on-one with as many members of Team Canada as possible. Not only is he gifted at imparting the skills necessary to win in competition but he will show our young athletes how to have the success mindset that all champions must possess.
