Paul Chapman, 1st dan

Paul began his training in earnest in the early 1990's under Shihan Chris Rowen, attending classes twice a day, four days a week, before switching to Daigaku Karate Kai in late 1999 having attained the rank of 3rd Dan.

"There is gym fitness and then, on a whole new level, there is Daigaku fitness - the gap between the two is there to be discovered and enjoyed. One certainty is the harder you train, the more you develop in all aspects of Karate and there is always a new level to achieve within Daigaku. I was really pleased to be badged by Daigaku and saw it as the most significant mile-stone in my training, particularly since, as the saying goes: life begins at forty."

Paul was badged to Shodan Black Belt by Daigaku at Summer Camp 2005.
