Godan (5th Dan)

As a young boy I starting training in Kei Shin Kan, Lower Hutt and then trained under Vernon Winitana with the Whanake Rangataua Karate Club until I was about 15. It was many years before I took up martial arts again.

I began my IOGKF training with Sensei John Whitby at the Greytown Dojo in April 2001 and opened the Featherston Dojo after achieving Shodan in 2003 under Sensei Terry Hill. I achieved Nidan in 2006, also under Sensei Terry Hill, Sandan in 2008 under Sensei Bakkies Laubscher, Yondan in 2013 under Nakamura Sensei and Godan in 2018 under Sensei Ernie Molyneux.

I have obtained Shodan in Ryūkyū Kobudō Hozon Shinkō Kai under the guidance of Derek English.
