Apologies for hijacking this thread for just this one time
I train and teach in Ashihara Karate (UK Organisation) predominately, and I also cross train in Wado Ryu (Seidokan).
My Ashihara Instructor is Barry Rutter who has trained in many styles including Shitoryu, Shotokan and Kyokushin. I am sure the instructors you mention my instructor will know them he has attended seminars with Eneoda Sensei and Suzuki Sensei amongst others.
I personally have heard of Shihan Stanhope, although I have not met his acquaintance
Again my Wado Ryu Instructors, Rob, Roy and Tony will have probably trained along side these KarateKa at seminars
It just shows how much of a small world it is on a Forum like this
A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.
