Sensei Danny Jordan 4th Dan, TKF Karate Instructor
Danny started training the art of Shotokan Karate at the young age of 9 years old in 1999. After quickly progressing through the ranks he obtained his 1st Dan black belt in 2003 under Sensei Masoe Kawasoe 8th Dan in Windsor.
In 2003 at the age of 14 years old, Danny was asked to teach. This was a great achievement at the time, as he was one of very few instructors of his age to be asked.
In 2006 Danny took up the role of full-time instructor and in 2014, alongside his friends Jake Pointer, James Daniels and Matthew Yardy, he moved away from his previous club, formed Traditional Karate and Fitness (TKF) and became a joint director and full-time instructor.
Danny achieved his 2nd Dan black belt in 2005 under Sensei Masoe Kawasoe and UKTKF in Windsor, his 3rd Dan in 2010 under the TSKUK/WTKO panel which included a guest examiner in Sensei Richard Amos 7th Dan and his 4th Dan in 2016 under Shihan Masoe Kagawa 8th Dan in Nottingham.
In 2007 Danny was selected for the traditional karate England squad UKTKF (Sensei Kawasoe group) and attended his first European championships in Slovenia.
Danny has many local, national and international medals to his name. This includes several JKS national medals, a gold medal for Team Kata at the JSKA World Championships Portugal 2010, gold medals for individual kumite and team kata at the FSKA World championships Italy 2011, a gold medal for team kata at the WTKO Championships Switzerland 2013 and most recently two silver medals for both individual kata and kumite at the JSKA European championships Scotland 2015. Danny was also UKTKF individual kumite champion for junior, cadet and adult.
Danny has various qualifications to his name which includes an NVQ Level 1 and 2 in teaching Karate, a JKS Kyu Grading Examiner qualification and also an international JKS recognized D Class Referee Licence. Danny has been selected for the JKS England referee team to officiate at the upcoming JKS World championships in Scotland 2016.
Danny was also recognised by Norwich City Council as the adult achiever for the 2011 sports awards.
Danny has been fortunate to train with many world class instructors, he trained at the WTKO headquarters in New York during 2013 and 2014 and he also fulfilled a lifetime Karate ambition of training in Japan at the JKA headquarters in 2014. During his 4th Dan Grading in 2016, Danny was privileged to be invited by Shihan Masoe Kagawa 8th Dan to attend a month of training in Japan at the JKS headquarters and the famous Teikyo University, which he is yet to do.
Danny also practised Brazilian Ju-jitsu for a short spell during his martial arts career.
