I have been training and teaching the gentle art for most of my adult life. One of the things that makes me happy is to see the students improving so many different aspects of their life, such as confidence, determination, self control, and discipline. I am constantly looking to better my self and thats what I like help my students to achieve. You can only look in to your own journey and improve it, instead compare with others. This way you can find the brilliance you once thought was impossible.

I have been training martial arts through all my life. I found Brazilian Jiu Jitsu then I knew I found what I was looking for. I am a regular competitor of the sport, competing all around the globe against some of the toughest opponents in the world. I love to teach and see our students improve, being a part of their training makes me happy. I hope to continue with the growth of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the UK, by teaching and inspiring others to learn.

Jiu Jitsu for me means a passion, enjoyment and a challenge. With it constantly evolving you can only follow suit in the development of the sport which is the beauty of it, providing me a constant learning curve with goals and targets to achieve but also at the same time been creative.

I began my Brazilian jiu-Jitsu journey when I was studying at college, being overweight I wanted to lose some weight and get in shape. Becoming a fan of MMA, at the time I was fascinated with the ground aspect and researched what it was. I looked for the closest academy and got hooked within 5 minutes! Finishing college I took a gap year to pursue a possible chance of further myself in the sport, now 5 years on, I’m teaching and competing.
Besides Brazilian jiu-Jitsu and competing as my main hobbiy, I really enjoy eating all types of food from around the world. In my spare time I take interest in Motorsport’s and extreme sports.
