Ron Matthews is a Shihan 7th Dan and Chief Instructor for Shito-Ryu Satokai Karate-Do Australia. Satokai is a worldwide organisation with affiliations in over 25 countries run by Soke Sato in Canada. In Canada the organization is known as Shitoryu Satokai Canada.
Ron Sensei has studied the martial arts since 1966 as follows, Kodokan Judo 1966-1968, Shotokan Karate 1971-1976, Tae Kwon Do 1976-1980, Goju-Kai Karate 1980-1986.
Ron Sensei has studied Shito-Ryu Karate since 1987 and has been to Japan many times to train with some of the world’s best Shito-ryu Karate Instructors.

Sensei Ron Matthews received his ‘Shihan” (master teacher) license from Master Suzuki Seiko in 2015.
He wants to pass the knowledge he has gained from over 40 years of Martial Arts Study to his students so they can also enjoy the benefits of what serious karate practice can offer. Ron Sensei has also competed successfully in State, National and International Karate Tournaments and while his preference is teaching traditional Shito-Ryu Karate for self defense, he continues to learn more about “Sport Karate” for those who are keen to enter competitions.
