Since i started training seriously back in 1992, i have helped many people reach their first major milestone within any Martial Art, that of a Black Belt.
Predominantly through teaching with Zen Do Kai, then moving on to teach full time with Go Kan Ryu Karate I helped my first students to become Black Belts and beyond.
In 2002 I started Canton Martial Arts / Karate, and since have graded many more to the coveted 'Big One'.
On the lists and records below are those students, past and present, that trained and graded with me within Canton Martial Arts.
I have left off the students that i either graded or helped grade that continued with either Zen Do Kai or Go Kan Ryu, as i feel they are not part of what we have done here at Canton Martial Arts since 2002.
To all Black Belts past, present and future, i hope that in some way that i have been, or will be able to, give you some inspiration, some purpose, and guided you through what once was, is or will be your passion.
Black Belts have always been and always will be the 'Flag Ship' of any club, and i am proud of every single one of you.
No one was ever given their Black Belt, you all earned it with 'Spirit' and 'Dedication'.
