Ted Truscott and Pamela Truscott-White
Karate Training: (since 1972)
2006: Achieved Yondan with Dai Nippon Butoku Kai
2005: joined Dai Nippon Butoku Kai
2002: As a member of the National Martial Arts Institute, I helped develop the Okinawan Kobudo skill sets and grading expectations up to mid-level black belt degrees, for the Western Canadian members.
2001: I left Victoria Butoku Kai but continued training as a member of Zen Bei Butoku Kai under Sensei Kim until his death in 2001: I achieved Sandan in Shorin-ji Ryu and Sandan in Okinawan Kobudo.
2001: My book, Canadian Law and Self Defence, was adjudicated by the Martial Arts College of the Eurotechical Research University of Hawaii to be a Masters level thesis. Therefore, upon the successful attempt at my Sandan grading (the physical grading minimum necessary for a masters level diploma), I was presented with a Masters degree in Martial Science by my Sensei, Richard Kim
