Sensei Peter Manning's surprise visit to Sensei John Euden's dojo

On Thursday 6th December, Sensei Peter Manning Chief Instructor of the Traditional Shotokan Karate Association (TSKA) travelled to Margate, Kent to make a surprise visit to one of the TSKA Senior Instructors club to present him with his 5th Dan certificate.

The club was packed with students not normally in attendance as they had all been encouraged to attend by the Thanet TSKA Club Secretary, Charlie Fowles. However, it was a complete surprise to Sensei John Euden when Sensei Manning turned up at the club. Pete took the club session and then gave a speech at the end and presented John with his recently attained 5th Dan certificates from both the TSKA and NAKMAS Governing Body to which Sensei Manning is Vice Chairman.

Sensei Euden has been a very loyal committed member of the TSKA for the past 7 years and regularly teaches on TSKA courses up and down the country. He is well known for his technical ability and traditional values.
