I have been a student of martial arts since the age of 8. I started doing karate and moved on to do taekwondo and achieving my black belt; also competing and winning gold, silver medals in national tournaments in tkd and open tournaments.

I always loved the way the thais fight so started doing muay thai, as back then it was not very common because of the tough art it is but thanks to my instructor and respected friend kru Bobby Thompson taught me the art of muay thai. Grading under master Sken ,and achieving my red armband instructed by Kru Bobby thompson graded by chief instructor Kru John Craig a former student of master Sken.

During this time I fought at amateur and pro level in muay thai, and continuing to always be a student of the arts was cross training in boxing, no gi grappling bjj,judo and wrestling. I am an avid lover of mma and am always learning & training to evolve in the various arts that are contained in mma, training with world and commonwealth champions in grappling and muaythai boxing. I will always be a student of the arts and continue to learn and develop, and help others who share the same passion in martial arts and health and fitness.
