About Mr. Ron Tobin

Mr. Tobin began his martial arts training with National Karate in 1992 and was promoted to 1st degree black belt in September of 1998. He currently holds the rank of 5th degree black belt. He says, “I was always a hyper child who nobody could control but when I joined National Karate, my instructors showed me how to use that energy and emphasized focus. National karate has always been my go-to place for fun, challenges, and self-achievement. Now as an instructor I plan to spread the same fond memories I had as a child growing up.”
