Details of Karate Activity Since 1972
I have categorised my karate activity since commencing Karate Training in two areas; firstly my grading record and secondly my competition record of achievements.
Competition Achievements (as a member of Sensei Cummins Club)
1994 – Handsworth Open Championships – 1st place (Senior male kumite)1995 – KUGB Central Region Championships- 1st place
The above are some of my achievements and it does not accurately reflect the many championships I have entered during this period of training but was unsuccessful.
I have been practising Karate for 41 years now and during this time I have been fortunate to train with some of the great names in Karate both at Club level, National and International Levels(Sensei Kanawaza, Sensei Obata, Sensei Uchi,Sensei and others from the JKA to whom the KUGB was affiliated. At present I still continue to train with Sensei Cummins, and attend courses with other organisations / Instructors such as Sensei Masao Kagawa, Sensei Scott Langley(JKS), and the JKA.
