Graham first began Karate in 1971. A combination of injuries and family commitments resulted in a hiatus from Wado, during which he experimented with other self defence systems. He returned to Karate after a chance encounter with Jamie, and fulfilled his goal of achieving his 1st Dan in 2012, followed by his 2nd Dan in 2015 in Nagoya, Japan where he also represented Wadokai England at the Wado-Kai World cup in the Veterans Kata. In addition to Karate, Graham also holds advanced instructor certification with the Self Defence Federation and runs personal safety courses for various organisations throughout Hampshire.
