Mr Sanderson gained my Black Belt in 1999 while living and working in Scotland. Sparring was a passion remains so.

On moving from Scotland he moved away from Taekwon-Do but not from martial arts. He spent several years training in boxing, kick boxing, jujitsu and mixed martial arts.

His return to Taekwon-Do in 2017 was prompted by his children''s interest in the arts. He wanted them to train in an art that was underpinned by a solid moral code and that is also dynamic/athletic.
