Sensei Kevin O’Neill

on 23rd May 2022 I passed my 6th Dan examination under the expert assessment of Sensei Frank Brennan 8th Dan, Sensei Billy Higgins 8th Dan and Sensei Jimmy Brennan 8th Dan.

I joined the KUGB in 1976 when I was 17 years of age.I passed my first Dan in 1982 under Sensei Enoeda at Crystal Palace.

I focused most of my energies on KUMITE and fought in competition until I was forty years of age.

Lacking flexibility and good kicking techniques I focused on punching.

I managed to get beaten up all over the world representing Bargoed SKC and KUGBWALES managing a few notable individual and team successes along the way.
