When I walked into the NLTKD, as a beginner, Mr Ojojor and Mr William were both Red belts. in a club full of big tough scary guys. They both got their Black belts under Mr Albert Williamson-Taylor long before me. I have always got a lot of respect for them then and now, and I am grateful to both of them for their support, assistance and sharing there knowledge with the current generation of NLTKD student. And in return I have promised, with their help, to keep the standards of new NLTKD Black belts to the same old high standards.
Mr Steven Green
Mt Green came to the NLTKD relatively recently as a red belt. He has a long history of training in various places and countries. We can clearly see his skill and knowledge. He hopes to open his own club one day and we may loose him but for now he is the first person I call if I need cover at the Leytonstone branch
We have had a few students go through the ranks and become Black Belts and helped a bit example Daniel Connolley-Taylor (Albert’s son) , Rinchen Griffiths-Golha, Cameron Ojokor, Stephen Henry and currently Charles Oliver.
