I began studying Shotokan Karate in 1990.  I was awarded my black belt in 1994, by Enoeda Sensei under the KUGB,  and second dan in 2011 by the FBSKUI grading panel.  I hope not to take as long between second and third.

Edit:  I didn’t.  I was awarded third dan by the FBSKUI grading panel in February 2014.

I competed in KUGB competitions in the early nineties, and appeared with the BSKU national team in the late nineties, having the privilege of having my backside handed to me by extremely skilled karateka from home and abroad.

I live, train and work (when I can’t avoid it) in Devon.
