Jermaine progressed in time to the rank of 3rd Kyu and has been a solid member of Aspley Dojo since the beginning. He is patient, easy to get along with and is a very well liked and respected karateka by other members of the dojo.
His strength is definitely his kumite. Jermaine regularly leaves his training partners with heavy bruising – not from striking, but simply by blocking their attacks. A very hard body indeed.
Jermaine is a great support. I’m lucky enough to call him both a friend as well as a student and I wish him all the best in his endeavours.
