I was honoured to take my yondan in 2009 with Hirokazu Kanazawa Sensei and to compete at the the 10th SKIF World Championships. My last competition win was in 2017 where I took 1st place at the UAE Nationals in the Kumite Men’s Open Weight.
In 2008 I joined the JKR-UK Team for a training holiday in Tokyo, Japan. I was lucky to train at the Ryobukan JKR Hombu dojo under Konishi Soke II. I also trained in Okinawa at the IOGKF Budosai in 2019.
