THE UK MARTIAL ARTS SHOW 2017

UKMAS Hall of Fame Awards 2017

 

I was extremely proud and grateful to receive a Hall of Fame Award at the UK Martial Arts Show, especially as I did not expect it and I had only gone along to support friends and fellow Martial Artists as they received their awards.

My sincere Thanks to Bob Sykes and Paul Barnett for the nomination, to Bob and Kevin ‘the Jedi’ Brewerton for the presentation, and to my great friend Bill ‘Superfoot’ Wallace and Lance Lewis for the photo opportunity.

I dedicated this award to my late friend and teacher, the legendary Richard Bustillo R.I.P.

BRUCE LEE GLOVES – ENTER THE DRAGON

My Bruce Lee Enter the Dragon Gloves

 

My sincere best wishes to all for a very Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!!

As we enter 2017 I find myself incredibly grateful that this year will mark my 44th year in formal Martial Arts (without about four additional years of informal training from the age of seven!) The gloves I’m wearing in the photo are generally referred to as Bong Sau gloves, or simply as Bruce Lee gloves … due to Bruce wearing them in some of his early demonstrations and even more so, to their appearance in his iconic movie, Enter the Dragon.

The gloves worn here are almost 40 years old and have seen LOTS of action!!

THE UK MARTIAL ARTS SHOW

UK Martial Arts Show Hall of Fame

 

I was extremely grateful and felt very honoured to receive my second Hall of Fame award in the space of two weeks, this time at the fantastic UK Martial Arts Show.

It was a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by great Martial Artists of all ages and all backgrounds. reveling in the arts that we passionately train in, study and teach – day in, day out, year after year. I was especially fortunate to spend some special, one-on-one time with Bob Sykes (truly much appreciated) and with my great friend Bill Wallace. I must also give special thanks to some other brilliant people that it’s my good fortune to know … Bobby KickboxSingh Rayatt, Ben Lewis, Pete Mac, Shaun Boland, Paul Barnett and Dean Williams.

Congratulations to all those who received an award, including my good friend Darren Le Fevre who unfortunately could not attend (thanks Darren for giving me the honour of collecting your award on your behalf) … and thanks to friends, family and students for making it possible in the first place.
