At my karate club people call me Sensei, and my friends just call me Richard.
5th dan certificate! ５段の免許！
About 2 months ago I received my JKF Wadokai of Japan 5th dan certificate - delivered to me in a snowstorm by a brave Japan Post motorcycle couirer - which I had forgotten to post, so ta-da, here it is!
It's extra special having met my goal of passing my 5th dan in Tokyo by the grading panel consisting of Arakawa Sensei, Takagi Sensei, Yanagida Sensei, and the rest of the technical committee.
