All of us who have been fortunate enough to have learnt from Hanshi Deena Naidu – online or in person – know what an exceptional person and deeply knowledgeable teacher he is.
In February 2021, this was acknowledged by the formal and honourable recognition of his achievements by Grand Masters Constantino Ceberano 10th Dan, Saiko Shihan of Kokusai Goju Kobujutsu Kenkyukai, and Hiroshi Fujimoto 9th Dan, Kancho of Inyo-ryu Kenpo Karate Jutsudo.
They have awarded Hanshi 9th Degree Kudan level.
The certificate reads in part: Mr Naidu, the Headmaster of the Karatedo Goshinkan Jun Goju-kai has trained assiduously in Japanese karate for many years, he is of excellent character, his technique is strong and he has made notable contributions to the development of budo.
