Royal Air Force Pilot flying first various marks of Canberra and then moving on to the Tornado F3 at RAF Leeming until the Sqn Disbanded. Secondary duties mainly centered around Combat Survival and Rescue. Left the military in 1997 after 22 years service.
Early during my military career I attained Shodan at Wado Ryu Katate under Gordon Ward. Sensei Walter Seaton included me in the under 21 Squad to compete at home international level.
While at RAF Wyton I came under the influence of Alex Barroman and studied Lau Gar Kung Fu but was posted before I could reach Black Sash.
At RAF Chivenor I met Sensei Eddy Stratton and here is where my association with Aikido began. After attaining Shodan I was posted to RAF Leeming when I started my own classes.
After leaving the Military I was employed as a head of retail for a short period before joining the ranks of the "Men in Black" and engaged in corporate training and team building.
In 2000 I was made head of the Shudokan Institute of Aikido international.
In 2000 I parted company with Men in Black to open a full time Aikido School. This school has become an internationally recognised award winning school. In my capacity as consultant to EFC UK my school is recognised as a school of excellence and is used as a model to help EFC clients build their own successful martial arts business.
