Sensei is pleased to announce that he has now been awarded the title of Shihan after 47 years of both instructing students and, in the early days competing at National and International level.

As Sensei achieved the high grade of 8th Dan back in 2015, it is traditionally expected that the title of Shihan is adopted as, by that time, it means Master Instructor and teacher of teachers and is given as a sign of respect for the person named.

Sensei was contacted recently by Mike Billman, 9th Dan, the Chairman of the European Karate Federation Technical Commission, the Secretary for the World Karate Federation Technical Commission and former President of the English Karate Federation who asked that he accept the title of Shihan.
