During his visit Shitama Manzo Sensei, 16th Headmaster of Sosuishi-ryu Ju-Jutsu, gave him the teaching title of Shihan. He also gave Bill Williams Sensei the teaching title of Shihan-dai, and Rondy Angoy Sensei the teaching title of Kyoshi.
Also visiting at the same time were Tom Zekes-Crooks Sensei, Peter Williams Sensei, Gabriel Dayeh and Wojtek Bagadzinski, all from Australia. Tom and Peter were both given the teaching titles of Kyoshi, and Gabriel was awarded Shomokuroku.
