John started Ju-jitsu at the age of 43, which shows that age is no barrier! He is still happily training 20 years on and enjoying every minute.
John acheived black belt in 2000 under Senseis Mark and Claire FitzGerald of Kokoro Kai.
Over the years of training John has developed an interest in ground fighting in particular. He has complemented his training with some training in Brazilian Ju-jitsu with Marc Walder.
