MSMAS Dojo ~ Supports 'Breaking Down Barriers' Martial Arts Festival or Children with disabilities....

Payne Kyoshi taught yet again with Hinton Shidoin at the 'Breaking Down the Barriers' Festival held for Children with disabilities ...


It was another brilliant day !!!

'Breaking Down Barriers' a.k.a 'Terry Taylor Memorial Festival' or as we know it 'Terry's Do' !!...

This event is, as ever, in memory of the late Terry Taylor Sensei, whose vision was to ensure that as many disabled people as possible can have access to Martial Arts in all its forms.

Held this year in Swanley, in company with Dave Lee plus other Instructors and Volunteers who also all gave up their time to come along not only to teach, but to be a part of the Breaking Down Barriers experience.

Finally, big thank you to Brian Taylor and his family for their continued support in both administration and sponsorship of this event, also to our supporters and sponsors over the recent years.

Some of the other Instructors present:

• Dave Lee: Martial Art: Mixed 5th Dan

I started martial arts at age 9, and have studied Kung Fu, Karate, Judo, Tae Kwon Do, Aiki-Jutsu, Kenjutsu, JuJutsu and universal cane system. Dave will teach Cane and Self Defence at the event. In 2007 I founded the Disability Martial Arts Association for Disabled People, and is the current chief executive of the organisation. Its main aims are to promote martial arts to people with disabilities, and ensure that instructors have the knowledge and experience to engage people with disabilities into their clubs.

• Kevin Hinton : 3rd Dan Aikido, 1st Dan Iaido & 1st Level Reiki, Shidoin DNBKID: MSMAS Aikido Head

Began Aikido in 1990 due to an interest in the Martial Arts of Japan, training with many different Sensei from around the world up to 4th Kyu, then based training with Kyoshi Payne at MSMAS Dojo who’s tutelage and guidance took him 1st Dan (Shodan) with DNBKID in 2000. Two years later received 2nd Dan in Kyoto, Japan in front of the DNBK Hanshi Board. Then began Iaido and Reiki to complement Aikido and all the benefits given him.

• Richard Burford: 3rd Dan Karate

I started martial arts at the age of 11 in August 1986 due to being bullied at school. I began training in Kenilworth, Warwickshire in a style called Sakiado under the name of Peter Baines. This style of martial art was basically Korean based. Starting a martial art could not have been better as it gave me a huge boost in confidence. After a number of year’s I began to filter away from this establishment in order to join a freestyle organisation named U.K.A.S.K.O. (The United Kingdom All Styles Karate Organization.) It was through this organisation where I gained my black belt in 1994. From here on in the club I was affiliated to linked up to another freestyle organization & from here on in we began to formulate our own system of fighting.
