Martial Arts Experience:
23 years of training
Started Shotokan Karate in 1981 with the Bath Karate (KUGB) club, some gaps but currently sho dan (1st Dan) and training in York but no home club. Started Aikido in 1982 trained in parellel with karate for about as long. My aikido history is more varied having trained in 2 styles of classical ueshiba-ka aikido, 3 years in Ki Aikido and currently training with Shodokan club at York St. John University. I have rarely bothered graded in aikido but currently hold a 4th Kyu grading.

I have also played with as many arts and people as I can - this doesn't make me popular with most association seniors but I believe is essential if you wish to understand what you are doing. Most out training has been with Jui jutsu, Tang Soo Do and Wing Chun people. But I have also trained Judo, kobu jutsu and Tai Chi.
