I started martial arts at the age of 7, as one of my inspirations was my father who was an ex-boxer. Also as I was living in a rough neighbourhood I had to learn to defend myself so I enrolled in boxing and martial arts. From there I realised I had a true passion for the skill of martial arts. I pushed hard learning and developing my technique through the years. At present I have attained black belts in Tae Kwon Do, Seike Juku Karate, Wushu Kwon (Chinese Boxing) and Yoshin Ryu Jujitsu. I also trained in Muay Thai for 6 years.
My academic acheivements include Fitness Instructor NVQ level 2 and I have also achieved my Personal Trainer Diploma.
