Sensei Andrew  '5th Dan JKS'

A trip to Japan was the start of Sensei Andrew Jones' journey to being awarded his 5th Dan JKS black belt. In October 2016 Sensei's Andrew & Jackie travelled along with JKS England Chief Instructor Alan Campbell 7th Dan & JKS England members. They travelled to train at the infamous Tokyo based JKS Honbu Dojo, the world headquarters for the Japan Shotoremnei Karate organisation & to attend the World technical seminar at karate's elite Teikyo University. A week of intense training twice a day at the Honbu Dojo was followed by the 2 day seminar where instructor representatives from countries all over the world attended to train together & gain experience first hand from Japan's best instructors.The head of JKS is Shihan Masao Kagawa 8th Dan JKS who is also the chariman of the World Karate Federation.WKF is now well known as the federation that brought Karate to the Olympics to be held in Tokyo 2020.Following the trip Andrew was invited to grade for his 5th Dan along side JKS England chief instructor Alan Campbell who was grading for his 7th Dan. The gradings were held in Nottingham on Saturday March 11th 2017 on Shihan Kagawa's annual JKS England technical seminar.Throughout the course Kagawa Shihan delivered vital detail, training exercises and humour which made for an inspirational seminar.Always well received, Kagawa Shihan gives all aspects of teaching his full attention with an infectious enthusiasm that gets the best out of all levels of karateka.5th & 7th Dan grades are a very high level, it takes many years of training, teaching & dedication to attain them & a high standard of karate is expected to gain a pass.Both Andrew & Alan passed their grades with plenty of positive feedback from Kagawa Shihan.
