Master Ogborne started his Taekwon-do journey in 1978 undertaking his first grading (with an “A” pass) under First Grand Master, Rhee Ki Ha, the pioneer who brought Taekwon-do into the UK. He later also took his Black belt grading under Grandmaster Rhee at his academy in Glasgow in 1982 and his 3rd degree under Grand Master He Il Cho. For his 6th Degree he travelled to Norway and was examined by a panel from the International Taekwon-do Federation (ITF), and his Master’s Degree (7th Dan) was awarded in the Republic of Ireland by the son of the founder of Taekwon-do, Choi Jung Hwa in March 2006.

Master Ogborne was a great competition athlete, having been a 5 times British sparring champion and receiving gold medals at the World Open Taekwon-do championships 1988 , 1991, and 1993 for sparring. He also won European gold medals in both sparring and destruction categories. Master Ogborne is proud to be a founder member of PUMA which was launched in 2000 by the father of TKD General Choi Hong Hi. He continues to love and teach the martial art that we all know.

Master Ogborne loves summer camp and hopes to see everyone there so they can create their own memories as good as his!

Mr Pixton V is one of PUMAs most restpected instructors and in his prime was probaly the most successful competitor on PUMA winning many medals for patterns, sparring and destruction at national and international competitors. In addition to his incredible taekwondo knowledge and capability he has also studied many other martial arts including groundwork, BJJ, weapons and thai boxing – a walking encyclopedia of martial arts knowledge.

Truely an inspiration to train with and be taught by.

When not traiing he can be found with his family and friends relaxing and often sleeping 🙂
