I started training in martial arts when I was 4 years old at BMMA Telford as a Little Soldier. I first wanted to try martial arts because I was obsessed with the power rangers and ninja turtles as a kid and wanted nothing more than to be able to do all of the cool moves and kicks that I saw them do on TV! Little did I know at this point, the amazing journey I was about to embark on.  The minute I started training I found my passion, I instantly fell in love with martial arts. I made so many friends, built confidence in myself, learned the values of respect and discipline while developing my motor skills and martial arts skill set.

As time went on, my training gradually got more intense as I progressed through to the cadet classes. At this point, I decided that I wanted to start competing in tournaments. I started locally at first in small competitions which then progressed to competing nationally and now I am competing all over the world, internationally. Currently I am a 13 x WAKO World Kickboxing champion, a 5 x WAKO European Kickboxing champion and a 23 x WAKO British Kickboxing champion. I have won all the major tournaments around the globe multiple times in all of the different kickboxing disciplines.

As well as competing at a top level as an athlete, I also love to coach. It’s a truly amazing feeling to be in a position to pass on knowledge to others and watch them grow and develop as both martial artists and people. At the age of 16 when I finished school, I started working at BMMA Telford teaching classes on a weekly basis while also going to college where I studied various different areas of sport. I finished my course with a National Diploma in sport with a distinction grade in every subject. Since then, I have been doing more teaching at BMMA Telford as well as travelling worldwide teaching martial arts seminars and competing at the world biggest events. So far, I’ve had the pleasure of teaching seminars in: Austria, Croatia, Ireland, Italy, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Mexico, Poland, Germany, United States (New York + Hawaii) Liechtenstein and Norway.

 

Recently I have also been added to the WAKO Great Britain Coaching team for the junior and cadet squad members which I’m very proud and excited about, meaning I will be attending both the Junior WAKO World and European championships as a coach.

 

Martial Arts has been my life, me and my family have sacrificed so much and dedicated our lives to me being successful in the sport and now I want to be just as successful with the launch of my new school BMMA Wellington (World Champion Academy) where I will be the head coach/instructor. I am so excited to be delivering some of the best knowledge that I’ve received from all over the world to the students at BMMA Wellington. I can’t wait to start helping, developing and improving the students’ skills, pushing them towards their goals and overall making a positive impact on their lives.

I think BMMA offers a fantastic vehicle for students to learn martial arts and take charge of their own self-development.

I honestly didn't think Martial Arts was something I'd enjoy but I'm so pleased I gave it a go. Each week combines a tough but fantastic workout in a friendly environment and Jake and Dan never fail to keep the classes such fun. I highly recommend trying it!

I attend BMMA as a (cough) mature student who has always been 'allergic' to exercise. But after only a few weeks, I've seen changes in my overall fitness levels as well as positive changes in my body tone.
