Born In Verbania Pallanza 04/12/1967 at present living in Sudbury (Suffolk) England. I started to practice Martial Arts when I was very young, my first taste was in the form of Tai Chi Chuan style (Chen) watching the fluid movements and being so powerful.

Adam began his karate journey with Kyokushinkai and then transitioned over to Shotokan reaching 1st Kyu under Sensei Arnold. Following the closure of the club, took a break to focus on family and work. Restarted under Sensei Antonio Cadeddu, achieving 1st Dan in Feb 2022. Outside the Dojo, Adam enjoys spending time with his family, cross-training by running and cycling, listening to music, and self-improvement.
Daniel Gortat Ist Dan
Sensei Daniel Gortat joined Bury St Edmunds Karate Club in October 2021 as a 1st Kyu. Under the skilful mentoring of Sensei Antonio Cadeddu, who, in his turn, has been practicing shotokan karate for 43 years, Daniel graded Shodan (black belt) in February 2022 with the grading examiners: Sensei Frank Brennan, British karate champion in the 1970’s and 80’s, and Sensei Billy Higgins, a gold medalist in Men's Kumite in 1975.
Daniel’s karate training began at Cambridge University Karate Club in 2017 under Sensei Richard Poole, president of the World Shotokan Karate-do Association, with Sensei Bob Poynton, Shotokan Cup Grand Champion in 1976-78, as the grading examiner. Whilst training there, Daniel competed in 2018 KUGB Kyu Grades Championships where he won bronze in Men's Ippon Kumite.
Since becoming a black belt, Sensei Daniel has started instructing the beginners' classes at Bury St Edmunds Karate Club. Being a physicist by trade, he particularly enjoys the mechanics behind karate as a sport, focusing on how to improve body speed, power and clarity of movement. In addition, he acquaints the students with the history, philosophy and Japanese language used in the shotokan karate terminology.
Sensei Daniel continues to pursue his own training by attending the adult classes at Bury St Edmunds Karate Club and KUGB seminars. In February 2022, he has successfully passed the selection for 2022 KUGB Kata Squad training.
William Glover 2 Dan
I started mixed martial arts in 2015 and having preferred the karate aspect moved to Barrow Shotokan Karate club aged six a year later. Based on recommendation I thereafter moved to a karate club in Haverhill competing in competitions as a kyu grade and enjoying some success. I achieved my 1st Dan in 2019 under Joe Anderson head of Toyakwai Karate Association. In 2022 I joined Sensei Antonio Cadeddu’s Shotokan karate club, the Bury St. Edmund’s branch of KUGB (Karate Union of Great Britain) and sat my young leader bronze level in the December of that year. In February 2023 I sat my second dan black under Sensei Frank Brennan and Sensei Billy Higgins. I continue to train under the skilful Sensei Antonio and hope to improve in the future.
