sorry to come in at this point. Sensei Clark was a well known man here in Liverpool.
When WJJF and BJJA were together it was headed by Soke James Blundell and assisted by Prof. Clark.
Back then Prof. Clark was 8th Dan and Prof. James Blundell Soke was 9th Dan.When Soke Blundell died the then Prof. Clark took over.
Though Prof. Clark still classes his main/first instructor as Jack Britton not James Blundell whom he had met later in his martial art career.
Later several of the instructors in WJJF split and took the BJJA name which was created within WJJF with them. One of those was Soke Blundells son Kenneth.
I have a pic from way back which lists among others Soke Blundell 9th Dan (In a gi with Juko Ryu Int'l badges + red belt), John Steadman 5th Dan, Kenneth Blundell 5th Dan and Charles Allmark 6th Dan all wearing WJJF blazers and ties.[/quote]
Kenneth Blundell is my instructor at the Lowlands and the JJ style taught there is a style called JukuRyu / soft style. Soke Blundell was taught a lot of martial arts during his travels and he incorporated these into his style which owes a lot to kungfu, chinese boxing and a few others. Sensei Kenny Blundell still teaches this although this in turn has also evolved with the martial arts he has also learned on his travels. When I have gone to seminars, trained with visiting instructors or trained at other clubs in the past you would be surprised how many of them are still using old lowlands syllabus' and kata although it is nice to see how other high level Sensei like Sensei Parker and others have adapted what they learned into their own style. Ours is an old club and we have pictures of Jigaro Kano and other jujitsuka on the walls. I think whilst its good to see the history its also good to see the evolution into a separate style.
I would also love a scan of that picture to show Kenny if Poss?
