Sensei Andrew Herbert - Sandan

Tring Shotokan Karate Club is delighted to announce that Sensei Andrew Herbert was awarded Sandan (third-degree Black-Belt) on 23rd October 2016.

The Sandan examination tests the same three elements as Shodan (first-degree Black-Belt): kihon, kata and kumite but requires the demonstration of a much higher level of technical proficiency, understanding and knowledge.

We are humbled by Andrew's determination and spirit; he is an inspiration to us all.
