Patrick Rankin

Assistant Instructor / Head Instructor AValley Summer School


  • Patrick Rankin, first dan black belt in American Tang Soo Do, has been a member of Acton Karate since the age of four (2004) and has carried out his family’s membership to Acton Karate and Krav Maga, which started over 20 years ago, unto the present day. He has been learning and training with Master Frankie McConnell ever since his day-one in a karate belt. Patrick’s main occupation in the dojo is Assistant Instructor to the head Instructor, but often leads instructions. For him, there is a joy in teaching all ages and seeks to improve himself and others in martial arts, self-defense, and personally his favorite, fitness. The Rankin Family has a background of discipline and fostering solid virtue, on and off the studio mats; these are goals he desires to incorporate into his teachings and personal training.
