Alex Dingmann

Assistant Director – Bartlett

Alex Fighting at Diamonds 400Alex Dingmann first joined National Karate in 1992 under the expert tutelage of Kickboxing Champion Scott Masterton.  He earned his Black Belt in 1996 and began his teaching career to share his passion for the martial arts.  He is currently a 6th Degree Black Belt and is a Krav Maga Certified Instructor.

Mr. Dingmann has become one of the great sport karate competitors of the modern era winning over 40 Grand Championships all over the world. He has consistently been a top world rated fighter and has been rated the #2 light weight fighter in the world, the #2 middle weight fighter, and most recently the #2 light heavy weight fighter. He is also one of the few martial arts athletes who is able to compete at the world level in both fighting and form – as he has also won numerous championships as a forms competitor.

Alex still competes at a national level and most recently won his division in “Super Fights” at the Diamond Nationals. Although, he still loves training and competing, he has found a new passion for coaching other National Karate martial artists in high level competition.  At the same time, Mr. Dingmann realizes that not all students desire to be competitors and he also loves teaching students who are not tournament competitors but love the challenge of earning a Black Belt.

Mr. Dingmann says, “At National Karate I have been blessed to have some of the best martial artists in the world as mentors and friends. The skills that I have developed, and the relationships that I have made over the years have molded me into the man I am today. I thank God for giving me the opportunity to do what I love and for my accomplishments.”
