About Master Paul Bowman

Master Paul Bowman has been training in the Martial Arts for 40 years. He began his training in 1964 under Sensei Harada where he trained in the Art of Shotokai. In 1973 he started his Shotokan training under Sensei Enoeda and Sensei Kanazawa. In 1987 he went to Japan and graded for 5th Dan (JKA) under Sensei Yaguchi (7th Dan) and Sensei Ueki (7th Dan). He then returned to England were he founded the Zendoryu Karate Association in 1987. In 1992 he returned to Japan and became a 6th Dan under Sensei Osaka (8th Dan) and Sensei Tabata (7th Dan).

He always thought there was something amiss. This was until he began training under Master George Dillman (9th Dan) Kyusho Jitsu in 1989. Everything began to fall into place. The secrets of the pressure points imbedded in the katas (forms) were finally revealed to him. This completely changed his way of thinking and training.

Master Paul Bowman is now an official Dillman Karate International representative in the UK. There are other great influences in his life. One of these is Professor Wally Jay (founder of Small Circle Jujitsu); and another is Professor Remy Presas (founder of Modern Arnis), who together with Master George Dillman are collectively known as the "Big Three".

"I have to thank all of my instructors for getting me to where I am now, I am eternally grateful".
