Title Changes

Please be aware of the following changes in the way we address our most senior instructors. Prior to this, we have always referred to them as "Sensei" but it was agreed that they should be referred to by a title that more befits their grade and martial arts experience.


From now on, and with immediate effect, our 7th dan Chief Instructor is to be referred to as Renshi Kidby


Liam O'Reilly, 5th dan, is to be referred to as Shihan O'Reilly


Eddie McClagish, 5th dan, is to be referred to as Shihan McClagish


Please ensure when speaking to them personally or addressing them in any form of correspondence, the correct title is used.
