My journey in martial arts started with Muay Thai boxing and Kung Fu as a teenager. I greatly enjoyed competing in sport martial arts, so eagerly looked to find more. I started training with Jason Morrison and the Morrison family in Freestyle Karate at their Morrison's Black Belt Academy. Here I was inspired to make martial arts and combat sports more than just a hobby, and began training more and more.
I was also very lucky to get the opportunity to train with fantastic instructors of other disciplines, like Jujitsu and Boxing. After obtaining my black belt, I began to teach and loved it. Coaching and instructing some amazing individuals, allowed me to realise teaching and training in martial arts was definitely the way of life for me. I have had several Thai Boxing fights, fighting under the very experienced guidance of John Taylor, at Johnny T's gym. This and some exciting K-1 bouts has fuelled my desire for full contact competition even more. More recently I have been training with Rob Freedman, of Blackburn Predators, in Mixed Martial Arts. Still completing in Karate, Kick-Boxing and MMA, I continue to improve as a fighter, instructor and a martial artist.
