We’re delighted to be hosting Sensei John Parnell, 6th Dan, for our training & kyu grading on 16 July 2022.
Sensei John’s journey in karate started in 1980, he was KUGB National Junior Kata Champion in 1986 and trained for 5 years with karate legends John Mullin & Richard Amos in the USA. He is an experienced instructor and a competition judge. Also he is co-founder of our association body Shotokan Connect and Basingstoke Shotokan karate club.
While the training is open to all Senshi Karate (and Shotokan Connect) students, the grading is primarily for those who missed the one in March.
