Jason Vorster has been an iconic figure in martial arts for over 40 years. He began his journey by training under the watchful eye of his father, 6th Dan Larry Vorster, and achieved his black belt in Kyokushin Karate at the age of 17. During his active fighting career, he won the South African Kyokushin Karate title and became the South African Kickboxing Champion. Jason further went to compete in mma with a record of 5 wins and 1 loss. After retirement from competitive fighting, Jason later obtained a 4th Dan Black Belt.
Through his role as owner and head trainer of Shuriken MMA – founded by Shihan Larry Vorster (6th Dan) – Jason has gone on to help run schools throughout South Africa, United Kingdom and New Zealand. His guidance has produced many successful South African and World Kickboxing Champions.
In addition to his work with Shuriken Dojo, Jason is also actively involved in youth sports coaching. He serves as the New Zealand WAKO ring coach since 2011, one of the striking coaches on the New Zealand Mixed Martial Arts Federation since 2012 and works closely with YouthLine.
Logan Price is a dedicated martial artist and founding member of Shuriken MMA NZ, having been one of the first to join when it opened in 2009. Under the guidance of Sensei Jay, Logan began his journey at almost 100kgs but through hard work and dedication has gone on to become one of the best bantamweights (61.2kg) in New Zealand.
Logan's enthusiasm and commitment can be seen in all of his classes, driven by a passion to help others reach their goals. His impressive list of achievements include being the first Shuriken graded Black Belt in NZ, two-time IMMAF World Championships quarter-finalist, Shuriken Amateur Bantamweight Champion, XFC Amateur Bantamweight Champion, WAKO Oceania Champion, and 2018 Lightweight King in the Ring semi-finalist.
Kamm is an integral part of the Shuriken MMA staff, having come to the facility as a student and soon was recognised with a passion for coaching. With a strong background in Fushin ryu Karate, he has an extraordinary ability to transform even the most ordinary people into stand-up stars after only a few sessions.
Kamm's cheery personality makes any intimidating class feel calming and enjoyable. As one of the main pad holders at Shuriken MMA, he lives for the sport and shows equal respect regardless of skill level; this isn't just a hobby but rather a passion for him.
