Sensei Mark Lutman of the Shinobi Kai Dojo in Basingstoke (The Koi Dojo) has been graded to black belt by both Grandmasters and was the second person in England to have that honour. In the past Mark has taught Judo, Jujutsu and Karate for junior and senior students as well as Koryu Bujutsu and Ninpo Tai Jutsu, from raw beginner all the way up into the Dan grades.
Despite the art, age, gender or grade, none of his students has ever failed their grading. Mark has been studying and teaching martial arts for more than 43 years and has consequently been awarded the title of Hanshi. (Polished instructor or expert teacher)
Mark also holds Menkyo Kaiden (Mastery of the School)
