THE HISTORY OF GRAND MASTER JOE GRANT GRIERSON AT THE KODOKWAN IN ZAMBIA from 1954 to 1961

Written by © Jonathan Kruger 2010

 

Grand master Joe Grant Grierson  was one of  the greatest personalities to have ever contributed  to  the proud history of the kodokwan over the last  82 years since its founding in 1928. I dedicate this history of chronicles to the greatest Kodokwan instructor that ever lived. Grand master Joe Grant Grierson 10th dan kodokwan koryo jujitsu, 1927 to 2007 and I would  also like to dedicate this work to his first 3 students here in Zambia; Hanshi Steve Arneil 9th dan kyokushin kai karate UK, Shihan John Kruger 6th dan (my father) Kitwe, Zambia and Sensei Spike Hovlmeryer 3rd dan Japanese Shotokan Karate, Kitwe, Zambia.

Who all trained with this great Grand master almost every day for 7 years. Without their personal experiences  shared to us of their training  with the great Master this work on his life in Northern Rhodesia would not be possible for us to tell to the next generation.

Some us had the great privilege of knowing him as our instructor and mentor here in Central Africa . Our hope is that as we humbly share his heritagewith you it will inspire you as his life here inspired all of us here and made all of us hereto strivefor Godlinessin our own life.

This is the story of this great master who once lived with us here in Northern Rhodesia now Zambia
