Tarek RejebInstructor


Senpai Tarek Rejeb, Black Belt 2nd Dan

I was born in a small village outside Tozeur, Tunisia in 1972. I attended the local school where for boys, life was tough, there was a lot of street fighting and bullying. I learnt from an early age how to be strong, to get respect and peace. There were no sports facilities in school, so I learnt how to train myself. As I got older I bought some home training equipment. When the opportunity arose, and the first karate club opened in my town, I began my karate journey.

By 1998 I had earned my Kyokushinkai Black Belt and shortly after that time my career and life got in the way of my karate training. Through the years, I maintained my fitness regime. I moved to Ireland in 2003 but it wasn’t until 2011 that I found Irish Karate Kyokushinkai and began my formal karate training again. In 2014 I open Tallaght Dojo and in 2016 I join International Karate Kyokushinkai in the UK.

I worked in a sedentary job and I always wanted to make a career out of my love for sport so, I left my job and went back to college. I was awarded a FETAC level 5 certificate in Sports Recreation and Exercise in 2015 and I attained my Level 6 qualification in 2017 along with additional qualifications in Pilates and Personal Training. My knowledge in Nutrition, Physiology and Sports Psychology gives me an edge in delivering my training to a junior and adult audience.

My first child was born 2011 and I wanted her to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle and in 2014 at the age of 3 she was the first student in my Little Champion class in Tallaght. My first son was born in 2014 and he also joined the class as soon as he could walk at just over 1 year old. The class has continued to grow over the past few years and because of demand I have now added a fourth class in Tallaght.

I am presently member of the International Karate Kyokushinkaikan organisation based in the United Kingdom who awarded me with my Black Belt 2nd Dan in July 2018.  Having a keen interest in the world of Martial Arts and following the increasing popularity of MMA. I decided to join, as a new challenge, the Latar Do organisation in Europe. I hope to teach and grow the Latar Do organisation in Ireland in the coming years.
