It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Hanshi Steve Arneil 10th dan (1934-2021).
Steve Arneil (Hanshi) came to Britain in 1965 from Japan, where he trained under the founder of Kyokushin karate, Masutatsu Oyama for 3yrs. Whilst in Japan, he was the first of Sosai's students to complete the 100 fights (kumite). He co-founded the BKK and also became the manager of Great Britain in all-styles and coached them to win the World Championships. His achievements are many, but his greatest assets were his Charisma & Knowledge. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten as his spirit shines on through the thousands of students he touched with his teaching.
