Over the years, many people have had the pleasure of both meeting and being taught by Hanshi John van Weenen.
He has been a true inspiration to so many people and we are incredibly lucky to have such a kind and generous man as the head of our Association.
On 26th August Hanshi celebrated his 80th birthday!
In a small gathering at the Honbu gifts and cards were presented to Hanshi, and we truly hope he had a wonderful day.
So from all your students past and present and all the Dan grades, Hanshi, we wish you a very happy birthday and raise a glass to many more!
