Joong Do Kwan's Taekwondo Applications
JDK Instructors share the passion with ITF friends here in Perth

16 May 2007

I'm going to take the Fifth on this one ...


Hanshi Tim White presents my certificate to me.

I would like to thank Hanshi Tim White, Director of MLCAA, for promoting me to Fifth Dan effective May 15 2007. I have been slogging away at the martial arts since 1983 and have never had any idea that I could take my journey and this humble hobby of mine so far. At heart I am still a student and such an award is an exciting recognition. Now to get on with life. :-) Best regards, Colin.

In addition, I would like to thank:

  • Sensei Bryan Robbins - my first TKD Instructor who is like a father to me. 
  • Sensei Michael Proctor - my Karate instructor, who took me in and made me earn my black belt. 
  • Sensei Paul Hinkley - there is a thing called 'technique' and it *can* hurt. 
  • GM Keith Yates - for graciously mentoring and inspiring me from afar. 
  • Shihan Dr Bruce Clayton - for making sense of it all and re-igniting my passion. 
  • Sabumnin Stuart Anslow - my brother in the arts - for sharing his love for TKD.

Look at that smile! Way to go Colin.

Reach behind you, and pat your back for me. I'm happy to see this well deserved recognition.

I'm sure that you get a special parking spot now that you are Godan.. right?

In actuality, little has changed. It's hard to explain. I still feel like I'm on the same path as when I first started in 1983, but being tested (and awarded) for different things.

Thanks for your well-wishes. It warms the heart - and there's precious little of that in the martial arts world.

Congratulations, Colin. I'm glad I helped to re-ignite your "passion." LOL

Shihan Dr Bruce Clayton

I always wondered where the "Dr" fit in there. Now I know.

Best regards,
