Grading joy for Norfolk karate instructor
- Credit: Submitted
Norfolk karate instructor Daniel Jones has been celebrating after successfully gaining his fourth dan grading.
The 34-year-old Eastern Shotokan Karate Association (ESKA) instructor, from Hethersett, passed his grading last weekend and now joins a few elite members of ESKA who have a fourth dan and above grade.
Jones successfully passed his grading after many years of dedicated training and after attending an intense training course recently to sharpen up his skills ahead of the grading.
He was put through his paces with a very gruelling and technical examination under the watchful eye of the Traditional Shotokan Karate UK (TSKUK) grading panel.
This included sensei Richard Amos (seventh dan), chief instructor of the World Traditional Karate Organization, sensei John Mullin (eighth dan), sensei Scott Langley (sixth dan) and resident TSKUK instructors Alan Parrish (fifth dan), Jason Hitchings (fifth dan) and Nathan Bond (fourth dan).
