Tell us about yourself: Started martial arts 1975 doing Judo, ended up in R.A.F team Rolling all over Europe. In civvy street I continued Judo also trained Kick Boxing & Thai with Jimmy Crowe in Skelmersdale, played rugby, ran in competitive races 5-10km's all at the same time. Done this for about 4-5 years but something had to give - I was getting older
After some sole searching I decide to stop Thai and rugby (travelling)but luckily found Lau Gar Kung Fu and Lau Gar Kickboxing nearer home.Done this since 1994-95 and am now 2nd Degree black Sash . I have fought in F.S.K's C.M.A's E.M.A's - Continuous, semi,traditional.Golds,Silvers,Bronze's etc and was Grand champion in two veterans catergories.
My current teacher is Sifu Bernie Giam and I train with his brother Gary for full contact. I aint a young dog no more but I still train to bite. Done a bit of rolling over the years with other lads from the club because of my judo background - one, Jason Tan has gone on to be a great MMA fighter - I like to think I helped him get an interest in Grappling skills and I am proud to say I have trained with such a skilled athlete My son-in-law Mike "Xmike101X" is a really dedicated Thai Boxer and trains with some of the best -formerly with Mark Cannon but has now moved on to gain input from other great teachers (thai names I cant spell)
All in all my life has been in combat sports and my family have all been involved in some way or other. And thats about it for now
