After studying Boxing and Martial Arts in my youth I returned to it as a young adult in 2003 and it very quickly became a huge influence in my life.
Working as a Martial Arts instructor I developed a desire to teach others and pass on the knowledge that had made such an impact on me. At this time, I also worked for Darlington Borough Council as a sports coach teaching many sports including boxing and wrestling to adults and children alike. Upon gaining my black-belt in 2008 I hungered for the opportunity to test my skills further through competition in Mixed Martial Arts.
Throughout my Martial Arts career I have actively competed in Boxing, Tae-Kwon-Do, Jiu-Jitsu and MMA. I have an absolute passion for teaching and coaching which is where the name “Sensei” meaning “teacher” in Japanese comes from.
I believe Martial Arts instils an excellent work ethic and the lessons learned through training transcend through all areas of day to day life.
Stylistically I combine traditional Martial Arts training alongside more modern western MMA, this coupled with a professional attitude developed through my career as a Physiotherapist enables me to provide high quality client centred teaching and care.
Alongside many competitive bouts in various martial arts, my most recent achievements in sports are:
