Our Senseis and Students
Chief Instructor Sensei James McGreechin
Sensei Jamie McGreechin began his karate journey in the early 2000's, training under the instruction of Sensei Pat Mclusky (5th Dan) of Traditional Shotokan Scotland"
It wasn't long before Sensei moved on to his beloved KUGB... training under such Karate legends and KUGB stalwarts as Sensei Frank Brennan (8th Dan) and KUGB Chief instructor Sensei Andy Sherry (9th Dan). Sensei McGreechin's journey moved on rapidly; gaining Shodan (1st Dan) in 2009 and again achieving Nidan (2nd Dan) in 2011.
Sensei's latest achievement of Sandan (3rd Dan) was attained in 2015.
Over the years Sensei has had many Karate highlights, representing his club on numerous occasions and his ultimate highlight was representing his country at the KUGB "Grand Slam" (home internationals).
It is Sensei McGreechin's mission, as Chief Instructor of Seigõ-sei Shotokan Karate, to pass on the many positive benefits and 'riches' not only to his students but Seigõ-sei instructors alike, bringing a standard of excellence to this proud traditional shotokan karate club.
Sensei Anne Kelly 3rd Dan
Sensei Anne Kelly first trained from 1980-1983 with the Karate Union of Scotland.
After a 20 years break in training, Sensei Anne Kelly returned to the Dojo in 2007, with the KUGB. Sensei Kelly passed her instructors exam in 2009.
Her passion for Karate, hard work and determination paid off when she achieved her goal of Shodan (1st Dan) in 2010, Nidan (2nd Dan) in 2013 and Sandan (3rd Dan) in April of this year, both under Grading Examiner Sensei Andy Sherry.
Sensei Kelly's ambition is to pass on her experience and enthusiasm for Shotokan Karate to her students, and to help build Seigõ-sei into a club with a reputation for excellence.
