and provides excellent overall conditioning along with great discipline, flexibility, focus and can be enjoyed by people of all ages and fitness levels.

FightingFit Personal Training and Sutton Coldfield Shukokai Karate gives you the opportunity to train one to one or in a small group with one of the countries leading 5th Dan Black Belt Karate Instructors.

Jason worked hard for the next few years and had great success competing at national competitions. He was rewarded with a place on the British Squad for the 1992 World Championships in Portugal. Jason was then awarded his Black Belt by Sensei Kimura 8th Dan at the World Championships after reaching the quarter final stage in the individual kumite and being part of the mens Gold medal squad. He then went on to represent Great Britain at the next World Championships in the U.S.A, again Jason reached the quarter final stage and received a Silver medal in the mens team event.

Jason was awarded his 2nd Dan in 1995, 3rd Dan in 2001, 4th Dan in 2006, 5th Dan in 2011 and awarded the rank of 6th Dan in 2018.
