    Humbled & honoured by award

    Post by Dave Turton on Thu Jun 10, 2010 12:41 pm

    Just to mention that through the auspices of George T Ross 10th Dan of the WBF (World Bujutsu Federation), I have been awarded my 9th Dan

    This coincides nicely with reaching my 50th year in the martial arts having started training in September 1960 aged 12.

    I am honoured and humbled

    Congratulations Dave - that's a fantastic achievement

    Hang on a minute.

    You started training at the age of 12 and you say you've been training for 50 years???
    That would make you 62..........

    NO WAY!!!!! Very Happy

    Seriously mate - well done - pleased for you and thanks for sharing it on here
