Sensei Malcolm Noble is a 5th degree black belt. He started karate in 1980 at Mt. Allison University in New Brunswick, where he was taking a BSC in Physics. During the summers he came back to Ontario to work, and trained in Toronto with Sensei Woon-a-Tai. After finishing his Physics degree, Malcolm moved to Halifax where he continued to train in karate at Dalhousie University, and completed a degree in Engineering. The Professional Engineer moved back to Ontario and developed and runs a retirement community. He also started a dojo in Sutton, Ontario. Malcolm didn't begin to seriously compete in karate until he was in his forties. In 2007 he won a bronze in men's kumite at Nationals. In the 2008 Worlds he came 4th in individual kata, earned a silver in Senior Men's kumite, and gold in Senior Men's team kata. Five members from the Sutton dojo won medals at the Worlds, including Malcolm's son Rigel. The 2009 Nationals in Calgary resulted in more medals, and Malcolm is looking forward to competing at the Pan American games in Guyana in August 2010.
