Sensei Trimble was presented with his 7th Dan at the FSK National Championships, Harvey Haddon Sports Centre, Nottingham. The certificate was presented by Sensei Dave Hazard 7th Dan, National Kata Coach and Chief instructor to the Academy of Shotokan Karate. Sensei Hazard gave a short speech complimenting Sensei Trimble and the FSK before presenting him with his certificate.
Sensei Trimble was presented with his 6th Dan 10 years ago and it is widely thought that this award is long overdue. The World Karate Confederation has also presented Sensei Trimble with a certificate.
