Sensei Bob king has been training in the martial arts since the age of nine having started in Judo. Since that time he has gained Instructor levels in Tien Shan Pai Kung Fu, Kyokushin Kai Karate and Ryu Kyu Kempo Karate. In addition to this, in his quest to further his knowledge and understanding of the martial arts, Sensei King has attended many seminars with some of the world's foremost instructors, including Danny Inosanto, Chai Sirusute, George Dillman, Vince Morris, John Will and others. In his youth he competed in various tournament circuits, most notably Koshiki, where he represented NSW as a competitor, refereed and judged at international level and was the NSW Koshiki President for a time. Sensei King has been training under Hanshi McCarthy since 1995 after attending one of his classes in Brisbane and being completely "blown away" by Hanshi's Knowledge and ability. It was just after meeting with Hanshi McCarthy that Sensei King established the Medowie Koryu Uchinadi School. October 2011 saw him open a full time dojo at Raymond Terrace.

Apart from teaching Karate, Sensei King is a qualified and practicing Remedial Massage Therapist and Personal Trainer, operating out of his home based clinic-gym and at the Raymond Terrace Dojo.
