Patrick also had a passion for the Martial Arts specifically in the system of Shorin-ji Ryu Karate. Patrick was not only as a practitioner but also a beloved Sensei having received his 4th Dan certificate from Sensei Mortley surrounded by his students, family and friends shortly before his passing.

Pat taught me karate starting from age 6 until I was 16. I’ll never forget his humour in class as well as how he was both gentle and firm in his teaching. I learned many life lessons from him and I still remember in my twenties, the first kata he ever taught me and the 6 words too. Sending much love and prayers towards his family.
