I started karate in RAF Bruggen in Germany in September 1994 as a result of being asked to set up a Karate club on the station.
Sensei was Peter Brokers (7th Dan) who ran a club in Mhunchengladbach, and to which the club at Bruggen became affiliated.
I left Germany in December 1995 as a 5th Kyu and joined St. Neots in April 1996, when Sensei Coppen was the Chief Instructor.
I have trained consistently since then, mainly under Sensei Tom Shepherd; and now gain a great deal of satisfaction in supporting him and the club as a Dan grade.
I particularly enjoy kata and Sai training; especially in exploring the associated Bunkai. And I also enjoy helping as an instructor - as they say: "if you want to learn something, then teach it"
