Shihan Peter is a strong believer in maintaining a high standard of Karate including those students obtaining Dan grades and the responsibility that goes with the wearing of a Black Belt. Although running a very successful Dojo running for over 20 years, only a handful of students have been graded to the prestigious level of Black Belt.

Our Black Belt page shows our Dan Grades which are still training.

Sensei Simon Weaver 5th Dan

Sensei Simon Weaver applied to the AMA Executive Commitee for a Senior Upgrade in July 2018 - this was reviewed by the Board and it was an unanimous  decision to award him the grade of 5th Dan

We would all like to congratulate Sensei Simon on achieving his 5th Dan Black Belt!!!
