In 1979 Allan received his Shodan - 1st Dan Black Belt grade from Passmore Sensei.
From there he went on to instruct and teach in North West London, notching up 40 years in his pursuit of mastering his disciplines of Karatedo, Aikido and Iaido in traditional Japanese Budo, to his current rank of Rokudan and the title of Renshi.
At its height his dojo in Northolt had the highest number of Dan Grades in the whole of Budokan - a great achievement.
Allan Pert Sensei has shoiwn a devoted loyalty to Budokan over the years, which is much appreciated by us all.
The workshop ended with a little presentation to him as a measure of our gratitude to him for all his hard work and dedication.
This was followed by the traditional drink of Sake, enjoyed by everyone.
Allan Pert Sensei performing and teaching his beloved Karate Kata - this time Tekki Shodan.
Tracy Harper and some dodgy Green Belts going through their paces!
Shihan Darren Waghorne pondering the intricacies of Seisan, along with Keith Wright working on Tekki Shodan and Mike Clapham Shidoin performing a move from Fuantei - Yon Shimpo.

...whilst Pat Miller, also from London, gets down to the serious stuff of pouring the Sake...aah the joy after the pain.
