Running a lifestyle business means my hobby is business and vice versa but beyond Martial Arts I also enjoy cooking, climbing and hill walking. I also read a lot and generally like to keep my interest as varied as possible.

Why Holistic-Fitness?

I trained with some good local instructors and even ran many classes for other local martial arts schools. The problem was I wanted to develop a style of my own.

That's exactly what I have done, with the help and input of my team of instructors I have picked the best bits of the styles I and they have trained in, reworked them and put them into a format that is quick and easy to learn.

I teach techniques that are simple to execute and stunningly effective.
