Christine Pullan - AMA Executive Officer

AMAI Vice President (WUKF) 

7th Dan Karate

I started practising shotokan karate in January 1975 at Sunderland Sendai karate club, which is affiliated to the KUGB.
I have trained regularly with all of the KUGB senior instructors, including Sensei's Enoeda, Sherry, Ohta and Brennen.
I have also attended courses with many other national and international instructors including the annual JKA course in London and in Scotland.
I have also visited and trained in Japan on two occasions. I have been awarded all of my dan grades from Sensei Enoeda, apart from my current grade of 6th dan which was awarded by Sensei Sherry in October 2005.
All of my grading examinations have been practical and theoretical.
I left the KUGB in November 2005 and I am now a member of the AMA and English Karate Federation.
I am now a member of the AMA Executive and Technical committee.
