Born in December 1956, at the tender age of 15yrs I joined the Royal Navy as a Jnr Seaman. My PTI Instructor attracted me to the Karate & the Martial Arts while serving at HMS Raleigh in Plymouth. After trying many styles such as Jujitsu, Judo, Aikido, Kenpo and Shotokan, I started to train in Shukokai karate in the late 70s and have stayed with this style ever since, I also train in Shitoryu Kata, and study all the 4 main world karate kata styles. In the early 80s I joined the AKA, which is now the AMA, and have been with them to date.

I’m currently the AMA National Karate Team Manager, a post I have held since 1990, I also hold positions as Vice President, Treasurer, Northwest Representative, Technical Committee, and Executive member and the AMA National Coaching Officer of which I hold City and Guilds, D32 and D33. I use these qualifications to assess would-be Instructors on behalf of the AMA. I’m also a member of the National Coaching Foundation. I was appointmented the President of the World Bugo-Budo Federation ( WBBF) I'm also the current AMA competition organiser. My most recent appointments is that of General Secretary of the AMA and President of the Amateur Martial Association International, which is the Karate body in membership of the WUKF.

I am very active on the competition scene, organising the AMA’’s International, National and Regional Championships which I have done for over 20yrs. In 2000 I organised the 1ST EKGB Northern Championships, and there after the EKGB Snr & Jnr National championships until November 2005 when Karate England became the governing body this role I carried on into 2006 with Karate England. Since then I had the honour of being the competition organiser for the EKF, I was also appointed as the BKF organiser for their championships, for a short time I was active as a referee, achieving association referee rank, which since I have reactivated gaining AMA association referee, which I used to referee at the World Budo Nord Open Karate Cup. I was honoured to be asked to help co-organise the 2nd Commonwealth Karate Championships in Manchester 2003. Most recently I've gained by World Referee's qualification with the WUKF.

In my early days I was National Kata and Kumite champion on many occasions with the AMA. I won the Gold medal in Kumite in 1989 at the EKB Championships (Luton), which latter amalgamated with the EKC to form the EKGB, to which I supported from its formation in 1991 until it's affiliation with the EKF in November 2005. My most recent endeavours was a few years ago in Sweden in 2005, I won Gold medals in mixed team kumite and veterans team kumite along with a veterans bronze in the kata. In 2004 I won Gold in the Masters Kata in the Budo Nord Open in Eslov Sweden. I won gold in the kata in 1999 at the International Championships in Nottingham, I again won gold in Kumite and a silver in Kata at the Scandinavian Karate International in Sweden in 1999.

I have trained many English and British Champions of which my group USKA gained 4 British Champions at the 2008 BKF championships, I have also coached the AMA squad to many honours at home and in Europe, over the last 19yrs. Most recently

Among my success’s as squad manager, was that the AMA Squad won the British Jnr Championships in June 2005. and most recently won 7 Gold 2 Silver and 19 bronze medals at the 2008 BKF championships which was the highest haul by an English association that entered.

In 2004 I gained my Rokudan in Shukokai. I train and operate traditional values and to date still practise the same. After 35 years I’m still open-minded to all Martial Arts training and study a wide section of cross training which includes Kobudo.

In 2001 I was appointed to the EKGB Management Board and went through 3 elections, I felt very proud to be asked to help with karate in England and the UK. I was elected in November 2005 to the New Karate England Board by the council. I said I would do my uppermost not to let the people down who showed faith and trust in my appointment. However during my time as the then elected Vice President of Karate England by the Board, I did resign due to differences of opinions with that board.

I have a full time dojo in Bury which is open 7 days a week, this along with my AMA duties and organising championships takes up most of my time.

Most recently the AMA have direct membership to the WUKF, which is the World Body for Karate, myself being the main contact for the AMA as their vice President. This is along with all the largest groups in England makes the WUKF the most viable World body recognised by the majority of English Karate associations in England. Gaining my 7th Dan in front of my friends and fellow members of the AMA was overwhelming as indeed it was when I received my 7th Dan certificate from the WUKF President himself in Italy. In Romania at the Snr World Championships congress I was appointed WUKF European President. I was extremely honoured to receive this appointment.

I am married and have two sons, one at 34yrs and the other at 31yrs. Both are black belts, I also have two granddaughters and two grandsons  who at present rule my life.

My social activities and Hobbies outside Martial arts include: Open Water Diving ( PADI ) Football, Swimming and the Movies.

National and Local Honours: ‘Sportsman of the Year’ in 1994 for Bury Metro Area and also in ‘The Combat hall of fame’.
