Paul Brant - 2nd Kyu
Paul started his martial arts training in Hampshire under the direction of Sensei Andy Eaves. The Style was Te-At-Su which is was an open style, a mix of Karate, un-armed combat and Jiu Jitsu. He had spent three years watching his children train before he was persuaded to get off the bench and have a go.
In 1999 Paul moved with his work to North Yorkshire and continued his martial arts training with Shihan James Burns , Chief Instructor of the Association of Samurai Bu-Jitsu Clubs, where he studied Jiu-Jitsu, attaining his Shodan in 2003.
Paul has trained under the direction of Sensei Ash since 1999. The photo above shows Paul performing Tekki Shodan for his 3rd Kyu grading in July 2004. Paul also attends both York and Haxby Shotokan Clubs and would like to thank Shihan Gullen and Sensei's Gude and Shaw for their patience. Osu!
Paul competed in the "Veterans' Kumite" at the IJKA Championships in Cyprus in 2004 where he was very surprised to come away with a medal for joint third place.
