Sensei Trevor Jinks - 1st Dan
Trevor is the most senior and respected member of our club. Approaching 70 years old he is an inspiration to us all. Trevor was awarded his Shodan in March 1998. When you are tired you just look to your left and there is Sensei Trevor still going strong, so you just can't give up when a man of Trevors maturity is still training hard. Sensei Trevor is very active and has many interests but still he manages to find the time to train and assist Sensei Ashley at the club.
