Chris St John Ordained
Vice Presidents of IBF Northern Ireland turned out to support Chris St John, IBF NI President/NI Sambo Federation President at his Ordination in Belfast. Chris's Martial Arts training paid off when he had to adopt siza Position for a ten-minute period. Training in the Aikido Hakama allowed Chris to move effortlessly between positions. Years of Martial Arts training have turned Chris into a Budo Pastor.
We in the IBF/BSF wish Chris the best and for a Martial Art Association to have its own Chaplain is a great Honour. Chris was a Police Officer in both the RUC and NIPS this is a man who has served his community most of his life
