Warrior Patrick Mintah is the Chief Instructor of African Goju in Ghana. He began his martial arts experience in 1985 in Ghana when he started with Taekwondo. He then met Professor Danny Gwira in 1990 and was trained in African Goju and has continued right up till the present day, whereby he is now the Chief Instructor for African Goju in Ghana. Such was his dedication and refusal to be beaten that he became a 1st Degree Black Belt in 1992. He obtained the 2nd Degree Black Belt in 1996; the 3rd Degree Black Belt in 2000; the 4th Degree in 2005; the 5th Degree in 2010 and is due for the 6th Degree later this year. He was one of the students chosen by Danny Gwira to use for the pictures in the African Goju Beginners Course book. He was inducted into the African Goju Warrior Hall of Fame in 2015 for his tremendous dedication and love for the style and for raising two generations of African Goju students in Ghana. It is his Goju “children” who will form the future bedrock of African Goju students in Ghana.
