Steve Outside of Karate

Living in Sheffield I’m perfectly placed to put my mountain bike on the car rack & head off for a few hours of single track mindedness! As well as mountain bike tracks, Sheffield is also home to some of the best real ale pubs and breweries in the UK, so when I’m not outside on the Bike, or Inside the Dojo, you’ll find me in the Pub enjoying a pint of real ale and a pork pie!
