Japan Holiday’s Lawson Dibb – Karate Enthusiast
From a young age Lawson studied karate in Australia, and this interest and passion drove him to live in Japan and train karate firsthand.
Lawson first trained in Japan at fifteen years of age, on student exchange, where he studied Kyokushin Karate at a local dojo in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture.
This experience spurred Lawson to further develop both his martial arts training and interest of Japanese culture and history in general, graduating with a Bachelor of International Business majoring in Japanese Language.
From there, wanting to learn Japanese first hand, luck led him to work seasonal employment in Okinawa. This opportunity led to practice Okinawan Karate in its birthplace, across different styles, dojos and seminars.
Lawson now combines his passion and expertise in martial arts to help provide tours and tailor-made training camps to martial clubs in Australia.
