Jack started karate training at age 6 years old and took shodan in 2008 aged just 11.
Many young people give up karate upon obtaining a black belt feeling that they have achieved everything, but Jack knew that this was just the beginning and gained his Nidan in 2012 in front of all the senior Seshin-Ryu examiners!
December 2014 Jack took Sandan at the age of 17 under Sensei's Barry Shearer, Paul Shephard and Andy Lewry.
He now helps teach in the Junior classes and acts as a mentor to the aspiring new students.
Jack also cross trains in Judo and has found that it helps in his study of karate kata.
Jacks other interests are cricket, football and tennis and has reached a good standard in all these sports.
