Kevan started Aikido in Japan at the age of 8 when his parents were living in Tokyo. He trained there for a while, long enough for him to appreciate the power and beauty of the art and inspire him to find aikido again later in his life. He joined Milton Keynes Aikido Club in 1989 under the leadership of Alan Sanders Sensei where he was awarded his 3rd Kyu. Our club became Milton Keynes Keihatsu Aikido Club and became affiliated to Yama Arashi UK under Tom Moss Sensei.
He then trained regularly at the Phoenix Aikido Club in Coventry gaining Shodan (1st Dan) in 2000, Nidan (2nd Dan) in 2005 and Sandan (3rd Dan) in 2013 from Barbara Moss Sensei.
Over the years, Kevan has benefitted from practising with many instructors including William Smith Shihan, Haydn Foster Sensei, Frank Burlingham Sensei and Phillip Lee Sensei. He has also attended a seminar with Steven Segal in Paris along with hundreds of other students.
Kevan regularly instructs both adults and juniors in the Milton Keynes Club, and has done for more than fifteen years. In 2010 He became Chief Instructor of Milton Keynes Keihastu Aikido Club and is working to build links with other clubs and associations in order to expand and develop the aikido of his own skills and his students.
