Ramon Lawrence - Renshi

My original martial art was Judo, which I started in February 1967 and retired from (after a spinal injury caused at work) in 1983.

I started Jishukan Ryu Jujitsu in 1978.

I am one of the founding members of the West Australian Kendo Renmei, for Kendo (1986), Iaido (1990), and Jodo (1993).

I commenced training in Kyudo in 2011.
