    Wow ... the best of luck with it. It is a great honour to allow to be tested as a master. If nothing else, congrats are well deserved for that alone.

    Many thanks tony. In a few months / years time, I may even start something that combines my skill set from all of my martial arts, something that is really practical on the streets for defending yourself

    Geek style - awesome. It could be like the karate kid style training, where pushing your glasses back up your nose is and elbow to the face, and rummaging in a ruck sack is blocking kicks to the groin, sliding finger on ipad/touch etc is a chop, and multi-touch zoom in is throwing a ninja star :LOL: hehe.

    seriously though, there's no reason why you couldn't do a session at the next conference is there? If not as part of the day, as something fun in the aftermath. I'd be up for it if i ever make it to one.

    Well if I could make it, I would be happy too, insurance would be a bit tough as even though I am registered, I am only registered to train members of the same organisations.

    If you didnt mind the possibility of getting hurt, and me not accepting liability then its all good. lol

    forgot to update this...I got it! I assumed I had back when I was 3rd dan and got put forward (My master started calling me master at 3rd dan which is basically a huge compliment in that respect).

    Now get 4 gold stripes on my belt!! Also I am allowed to order my own custom belt if I choose too so I might just do that!

    5 years time it will be 5th dan, wish me luck! Although now I have to retire as 3 time undefeated super heavy weight world champion (a reign that lasted me 6 years!) and 8 time UK super heavy weight undefeated National champion (Lasted 8 years).

    On the plus side I now get to host seminars and if I can find somewhere to do it, have my own training hall!

    If anyone is up for learning some basics on Friday night, if we can find somewhere suitable then I am happy to do some basics for all.
