"I have been training in the Martial Arts since the age of 8, initially starting my training in Karate and then moving on to the Tiger Crane Combination System in my teens. I have trained in China with a number of different traditional masters and I have an official Dan Grade from the Chinese Wushu Association. In addition to this I enjoy practising modern combat systems like Brazilian Jujitsu and Muay Thai.
I have taught combat techniques to military personnel in war zones. I have been invited on a number of occasions by Kurdish military commanders in Iraq to train soldiers under their command and have in addition to this trained close protection officers and police, tasked with protecting VIP’s in Iraq. I have also held masterclasses for businesses in UK and abroad.
I love the traditional martial arts and believe it is very important to pass this on to the next generation. I believe that the ultimate aim of training is to arrive at truth. Through training, the student pushes himself or herself physically, mentally and spiritually, attaining levels of self-understanding that was not thought possible.
In my many years of training, I have seen first hand the positive transformation that a good teacher can bring to a student and have also seen the long-term damage a bad teacher can bring. I believe in passing on the good that I have learnt, and learning from the bad.
In me, you will find an instructor who will teach you to the best of his abilities and not hold you back. I will provide the space and the guidance for you to learn an art form that will transform you from who you are to who you are supposed to be.
So come along to class and begin your journey!"
