The Organisation

Richard Amos Sensei is the World Chief Instructor of the group. However, Richard Sensei draws upon the talent of his executive committee to drive the group. Steve Ubl Sensei is the World Technical Director and as such provides vital direction within the group. Within WTKO GB , Scott Langley Sensei is the Technical Director and domestically he leads the group.
