Meet the Owner, Vince Patrick.

Vince Patrick As Owner and Head Instructor,  Vince began his training in Champion Karate under John Maynard of Wilmington, NC in 1991.  There he would have the opportunity to train with other great Champion Karate Black Belts and now school owners, Renee Ashley of Elizabethtown, NC and Tony Geouge of Little River, SC.  Vince received his first black belt in 1995!

In 1996, he decided to open what is now Champion Karate of Whiteville, NC and is currently a 5th Degree Black Belt Instructor in the Champion Karate American Self-Defense System.  Vince also holds Black Belts in Chuck Norris’ Chun Kuk Do, and Joe Lewis Fighting System.
