What follows is a brief list of his credentials.

Martial Arts Grades
"I have grades in different styles with different
Martial Arts Groups and I think it is important to
separate them in order that I do not appear to be
anything that I am not, or that I hold a higher grade
in a specific style than I actually do. As such my
grades & styles are listed below in accordance with
the CMAA time served chart for Dan Gradings.
With regards to my own styles the highest attainable
grade in them all is capped at 8th Dan and no
higher. Thank you, Andrew Morrell
