SENSEI TONY CHRISTIAN

PRESENTATION OF 9TH DAN – HANSHI

It was with great deal of pleasure that the B.K.A. with the endorsement of sensei Christian’s higher grade black belts presented him with

the grade of 9th dan – Hanshi.

Sensei Christian began training in 1965 and has not stopped since. He still regularly teaches and inspires old and new students. For the last 50 plus years Tony has made Karate his life. The club that he started – Academy of Karate -Do has now been open for training for 46 years, truly amazing.
