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 - 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.
