John Brierley

John Brierley, 3rd Dan, John has been training in Karate for over thirty years. He originally practiced Shotokan in two different associations in the Portsmouth area where he had the privilege of occasionally training with Keinosuke Enoeda Sensei.
John changed to the Shukokai style in 2004, training with Steve and Chris Yates and is now a proud advocate of the style.
John is a retired Secondary Headteacher and although he still teaches part-time in Durham and Newcastle he has sufficient time available to research karate history and provide karate courses for schools.
