Sensei Eugene Codrington 8th Dan

Eugene Codrington's time span at the top of competitive Karate is remarkable. Back in 1974, Eugene won his first of five European championships, then 11 years later, in April 1985, he was collecting his fifth British Championship trophy. He was World Champion as a member of the British Team who beat the Japanese for the first time ever in 1975, and a finalist in the world individual Championships two years later in Tokyo
