|Tell us about yourself:||
Like a lot of kids at the age of 9 I started doing karate, which I really enjoyed but after a while the club I attended moved location and I was at that time unable to travel, so it all stoped there for me, for around 10years!
In1997 me & my mate Darren simeon(RIP) (who'd done some JUDO) decided we had enough of our wild teens & needed some focus! so we joined a GOSHINDO class at our local community centre & were instantly hooked! Goshindo covered everything from Ground Work to Stand-up & all areas in between, it was a no nonsense, hardcore, kick-ass club! (After lots of hard work) I became only the 4th ever Black Belt, belts were not given away, you had to work hard. The club dis-banded after around 8yrs of me training but I left with a varied & wide expance of knowledge, not only of the fighting arts, where I quallified as a KIDO KICKBOXING instructor, but also of the power of healling, where we covered things such as Massage, Reiki, Omni Energy, Reflexology & Accupressure, I have certificates to practice in a couple.
After a short period of not doing much in the way of training I took up MUAY THAI with Bobby Thompson, Senior Instructor @ SMTC & have trianed in Muay Thai since around 2003.
AIthough I really enjoy Muay Thai I missed the other aspects of fighting that I had trained in! This is when I discovered SYSTEMA (Russian Military Combat System) - this is hardcore & not for the feint hearted! - but great! I have bn involed in this since around 2006 and it is from this I was introduced to the KOREAN KICK BOXING ACCADEMY.
Through my love of all things MMA,
I openned my own gym M-MAG in june 2009,we are a non profit comminity based gym & we cover muay thai, systema , kickboxing & boxing.
