    One person omitted from the list is the legendary Ray Fuller of Thames Karate International, although I have found out that he sadly passed away last May.
    It's a shame we missed him on the list, not too sure of his history but I know it went back a long way.

    A loss to the UK Karate world.

    Default Hanshi Arneil 10th Dan

    Hanshi Arneil is now promoted to judan, and one of the few times in my life time that somebody whom I strongly feel is deserving is promoted to such a rank. Hanshi Arneil was the first individual to do the hyakunin (100 man) kumite after Sosai Oyama, himself.

    Simon:

    George Grimes Kyoshi has recently been promoted to 8th Dan by the EKF.
    IMO a more than justified award to one of the first generation Wadoka in the UK.

    Chucky.

    Hi Simon,

    Please find following missing date/clarification for Stan Knighton (Coloured Red), i believe George Grimes (1966) should be removed from the list as he does not meet the initial criteria (I.E. Must have been training since before 1965 - this would also mean that anyone who began training in 1965 should also be removed - please advise):

    9th/10th Dans:
    Terry Wingrove 9th Dan (1957)
    Steve Arneil 10th Dan (1961)
    Roy Stanhope 9th Dan (1962)
    Michael Randall 9th Dan (1964)
    Ticky Donovan 9th Dan (1965)
    Stan Knighton 9th Dan (1964)
    Ronnie Colwell 9th Dan (?)
    Peter Consterdine 9th Dan (1964)

    8th Dans:
    Andy Sherry 8th Dan (1959)
    John Van Weenan 8th Dan (1963)
    Tommy Morris 8th Dan (1963)

    Eddie Daniels 8th Dan (1965)
    Peter Spanton 8th Dan (1965)
    Tony Christian 8th Dan (1965)
    Hamish Adams 8th Dan (?)
    [COLOR="royalblue"]Philip Kear 8th dan (1965)

    Default thanks

    Thanks Garry, here's the updated list. I'm leaving 1965s on there. I also think Andy Sherry's start date for Karate should be 1960 not 1959 since this was when Fred Gille opened the Liverpool Karate Dojo. 1959 may be his start date for Jujutsu. Incidentally I have asked R Colwell for his Karate start date but received no quantifiable answer.

    9th/10th Dans:
    Terry Wingrove 9th Dan (1957)
    Steve Arneil 10th Dan (1961)

    Michael Randall 9th Dan (1964)
    Peter Consterdine 9th Dan (1964)
    Stan Knighton 9th Dan (1964)
    Ticky Donovan 9th Dan (1965)
    Ronnie Colwell 9th Dan (?)

    Andy Sherry 8th Dan (1960)
    John Van Weenan 8th Dan (1963)
    Tommy Morris 8th Dan (1963)

    Ronnie Colwell started training in Karate in the 1970s, before that he was in Ju Jutsu. I remember when he went to Malaysia to train with Budokan, who had broken away from their Japanese teachers and formed their own World body. Ronny, who went over as a Ju-jutsu instructor, returned as a Karate 3rd Dan. If I recall correctly, he formed an association with Frank Vernon, a genuine KUGB instructor.
