Senior – Dave Gooch
Dave came over to Higashi with a 1st Dan in Shotokan. He has trained very hard to develop his karate into the Higashi style. At the Ogwen Bank course, let by Sensei Peter Spanton, he was assessed across to a 1st Dan in Higashi without the need for a formal grading. This is an extremely rare and possibly a unique occurrence. Suffice to say, the Luton Instructors were very impressed with this achievement!
