    Hello everybody, thanks for having me!!

    At the request of Meeester Tully;

    Despite always having an interest in Boxing and Martial Arts I didn't begin training until quite late on(25!)
    I have been really fortunate with my first choice of school, The Bob Breen Academy.

    My first instructor there was Dave Birkett (now also of Dartford MMA - how lucky was I!!)
    From then on I have studied directly under Guro Bob and Guro Terry Barnett.
    I am extremely proud to be certified to Instructor status under both.
    Along the way I have supplemented my training with seminars:

    Rick Young
    Rick Faye
    Phil Norman
    and last, but not least, Guro Dan Inosanto.

    Respects are also due to Gordan McAdam for his time working Muy Thai and other Academy Instructors I must credit, Savash Mustava, Dave Onuma, Tim Harding et al for their help along the way.
    And all the training partners past and present, regardless of grade - I've learnt something from them all.

    I am currently trying my hand at BJJ with the awesome Marc Walder -but, I'm not doing so well!!

    If again, I may give massive thanks to Guro Bob and Guro Terry - for everything Smile
