As a schoolboy I was always fascinated by Martial Arts. Like many others, taking the step to actually start was the most difficult. 39 years ago, at the age of 13, after a Tae Kwon Do demonstration at my school, I commenced what I didn’t realise then, a journey on a lifetime of Martial Arts to come. I am only half way there to date.
After achieving 1st Degree Black Belt in Chung Do Kwan Tae Kwon Do under Instruction of Master Chun Suk Suh in 1983, I searched around and trained in some different styles including Ju Jitsu and Karate until in 1984, I was led to try a class in Hapkido. I am grateful to each style I trained as each has their strengths from which I learnt to gather knowledge and experience.
