A bit about Master S. Comley-White
Shane Comley - White was born in Johannesburg and at the age of 17 started studying martial arts, began learning the traditional Korean martial arts which falls under the Moo Duk Kwan system. After receiving his 1st Dahn, Shane started to explore other styles and arts to gain a feeling of what tools complimented what he had already learned. Some of the other arts studied were Capoeira, Hupkido, CQC, along with the sword art called Shim Soo Do.
After many hours dedicated to the perfection of the different techniques already acquired. Shane was asked by his Masters to open up his own school in South Africa. In 2004 INMDK was officially opened. This school teaches open hand techniques along side a range of traditional and practical weapons.
After receiving his 3rd Dahn, and successfully running a martial arts school, Shane decided to focus on the perfection of his already obtained skills. In 2009, Shane was given a government grant to train as a body guard, after a difficult training program which covered a wide range of tactical training techniques, first aid, advanced driving and many more valuable skills, Shane was qualified to start working within the VIP industry.
As a qualified body guard and martial arts instructor Shane has built up a lot of knowledge which makes him someone who understand both the spiritual and physical aspects of using his skills, which allows him to pass on a wealth of knowledge to those who are dedicated to learning.
Shane graded to 4th Dahn by our international association and had to perform in all aspects of weaponry, fighting, forms and in fitness which was a 6 hour grading and achieved high marks.
On 7 and 8 December 2019, Shane was tested and graded to 5th Dan, it was an intense weekend of physical, mental and emotional testing but what a great weekend it was. With a minimum required pass mark of 95%, Shane was honored with a number of grades and honorees, tasked him with the responsibility of creating the HIM SOO DO Foot Print in South Africa and the African continent.
