He said "travelling with the KUGB England Team overseas I have had the opportunity to watch Sensei Joe Rawcliffe compete at both European and World Championships.  His hard work, dedication and attitude to his own training is first class and the reason why he has such a great record in competition.  His course was excellent, he is a great Instructor and it is easy to understand why he is a Champion."
