Children's Martial Arts Class Instructor / Adult Kickboxing Syllabus Instructor
Originally from Doncaster, I have travelled and lived around Europe both with work and martial arts. I settled in London in 2010.
I started in Tae Kwon Do when I was five years old and moved onto Kickboxing, entering and winning my first tournament when I was seven. I then started practising Karate when I was about 10.
During my teens I concentrated on Boxing, Sport Karate and Kickboxing. I
was also assistant coach to the Junior England kickboxing team when I was in the England Senior Squad. I have been training with Holistic Fitness for over 5 years.
I have competed in many competitions including:

FSK Runner up 2006
WON Winner 2006
British National Bronze medal winner 2006
English Nationals Silver medal 2006 & 2007

I love using the Heel Hook when grappling or doing mixed martial arts and a Spinning Hook Kick is an all round favourite.
Kickboxing, a bit of kicking with boxing, some boxing with kicking and a bit more Kickboxing.
And watching Doncaster Rovers!
I like that it's a good, fun, family club and I also like sparring with the Adult members. I really enjoy seeing the children I teach develop their skills and cannot wait until my own son is old enough to come and take part!
