This page is a summary of my Martial Arts activity and posts.
I started studying a Shotokan-based Martial Arts style called Seishin Do as a teenager. I attained my provisional Black Belt (Shodan Ho) around the time I turned 18 (late 1982) and was granted my full Shodan (1st Dan) sometime after that. During this time I explored a number of other Martial Arts on offer at uni, including another style of Karate (name is lost in time), a semester of Aikido, and almost a year of Taekwondo. Due to uni studies and having joined the Army Reserve, I gave my martial arts training up somewhere around ’84 or ’85.
About 20 years later my youngest daughter showed interest in Martial Arts and we started her at the local school. It wasn’t long before I was training in Bushidokan at Ultimate Martial Arts and Fitness. I trained there until mid 2009, attaining 1st Kyu. Since then I have been training in Goju Karate in Croydon at the the Outer Eastern IGK Martial Arts Club, a part of Hanshi Tino Ceberano’s International Goju Karate association.
