From an early age Ray always had a strong interest in participating in a variety of sports particularly rugby, running and boxing. Ray took up Kyushindo in 1973 under the instruction of Derek Collins gaining his Karate Black Belt in 1977 and 4th Dan in 1988. Realising the potential of Kyushindo Judo, Ray incorporated this into his training and gained his Judo Black Belt in 1986. Ray was fortunate to have been awarded these grades by both Derek Collins and the style founder, George Mayo. The meaning of Kyushindo is “to seek the perfect way in everything you do” it’s Ray’s belief that this philosophy has had a bearing on his career where he is a Director of three Transport Companies.
“As the Area Coach, my aim is to ensure uniformity of teaching the Kyushindo Syllabus throughout all clubs while passing on the technique and knowledge I have been fortunate to have gained over the last 40 years.”
