My name is Danny Jordan, I am the founder and chief instructor of Martial Arts East. I have been training in Shotokan Karate for 22 years, teaching for 18 years and currently hold a 5th Dan Black Belt. I have also expanded my knowledge over the last 4 years by studying Bruce Lee’s art of Jeet Kune Do (JKD). Since a young age I have been an avid Karate competitor, medaling locally, nationally and across the globe. The highlight of my career came after my 4th Dan grading in 2016, I received a rare invitation to the JKS headquarters in Japan by the world’s leading Shotokan exponent Shihan Kagawa (9th Dan). In 2017 I completed 5 intensive weeks in Japan and lead me to have an article published in the well-known Shotokan Karate Magazine (SKM). My passion is teaching and I love being able to pass my knowledge and skill on and see my students develop.
