I’ve posted this picture before but wanted to again, because it’s a great day with some great friends in the martial arts. I’m pictured with Shihan Phil Handyside (8th Dan head of Shobukan), Sifu Steve Rowe (8th Dan head of Shikon) and Alfie Lewis (9th Dan freestyle legend).
I posted the pic on Facebook and Steve Rowe commented:
A bunch of old reprobates, but we all love each other
To which Alfie replied:
I second that Steve, love is the key, love of the art love of people and love of life
What great sentiments and I’m fortunate and humbled to be friends with these true legends of British martial arts.
Thanks for your friendship.
