Practising & Developing the true art of Kimura Shukokai Karate

Sensei Audun Daniels started training in 1987 at the age of 6yrs old under the guidance of his father Shihan Eddie Daniels 8th Dan who is head of the Shukokai Karate Federation and one of 4 World Chief Instructors for Kimura Shukokai International.

 

Sensei Daniels has trained with the late Master Kimura, for whom he regarded as one of his grandfathers. He attained his 1st Dan black belt from Master Kimura in 1992.  He has been graded by Shihan Daniels 8th Dan 2nd - 4th Dan.

 

Sensei Daniels attained his 5th Dan, in USA in 2011, graded by KSI World Chief Instructors, Shihan Daniels 8th Dan, Shihan Bill Bressaw 8th Dan, Shihan Chris Thompson 8th Dan & Shihan Lionel Mariuns 8th Dan.

 

Most recently he attained his 6th Dan in May 2017 under the 4 World Chief instructors who are now all 9th Dan.

 

Sensei Daniels has been very successful in the competition field winning numerous major titles at both national and international level.  He has won the KSI World Championships & KSI European Championships at both kata & kumite many times.  He has also won the English and British All-Styles titles in Kumite on many occassions. He has competed all over the world including Japan, South Africa, USA, Finland, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Germany, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Netherlands, Slovenia, Norway.  

 

Sensei Audun Daniels is one of the most succesful individual male competitors in the world of Kimura Shukokai to date.

 

Sensei Daniels is currently very actively still involved withing competing and is currently also one of the senior international competitors and coaches for the SKF National Team.

 

He currently holds the KSI World Heavyweight +90kg Kumite title which he won in Germany in 2016, along with the KSI World Mens Kata Individual title also won in 2016.

 

Although very actively involved on the competition field at present, Sensei Daniels main emphasis when teaching is on the true martial art, where self discipline, respect and etiquette is of prime importance. Along with this he believes to train to become the best you can achieve in oneself, you must have a strong clear mind and never give up studying the art.  His belief from what has been taught to him is that without strong basic foundations then your karate is empty.  To be successful at karate you need to have strong basics.

 

Sensei Daniels is also fully CRB certified.
