THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS
I have been studying Shotokan karate for thirty three years, with Sensei Charles Gidley 8th Dan, who is the Chief Instructor for the British Shotokan Kyogi International.
I have my own club now which I have been running for seven years now, and I have several students who have passed their black belt examinations.
I was on the KUGB England Junior squad for three years. I then went to fight for the BKA Senior England Team at international level.
I am the assistant coach for BSKI England Squad.
I can grade students up to brown and white belt(1st kyu), plus I sit on the panel for students taking their black belts.
I have been to some countries in Europe to teach karate which was a good experience for me to see students from different cultures.
