Shaun Hoddy : 6th Dan
Shaun Hoddy started Aikido in 1975 after eight years of Judo. Shaun was sports person of the year, kata gold medalist and Tanto Randori Silver medalist at the European Aikido Championships in 1988, and medalist at the 1990, and 1991 Championships.
In November 1997, Shaun received his 5th Dan at Yawara Centre London (examiners Dr Lee Ah Loi, Ken Broome, Fritz Van Gullik, Eddy Wolput).
In 2012, Shaun brought his 300 strong ZETAR students back under the membership of the BAA. Today Shaun teaches members at his club in Essex. As well as regularly teaching aikido to adults and children, Shaun’s focus is on ensuring that the Tomiki Aikido Koryu no kata are preserved.
