Grading for my 3rd Dan Black Belt in Sankukai Karate was the hardest thing I have ever done
I started training at Rob Locks Academy in 2005 with my son. I had just given up semi-professional football and wanted to do something to do to keep me fit.
I first started training Karate and after dedicated training I achieved my 1st Dan Black belt , soon to be followed by 2nd and 3rd Dan. Grading for my 3rd Dan was one of the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
In March 2017 I achieved my 1st Dan Muay Thai Boxing which I am very proud of.
I have trained Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) at the Academy for five years and had the opportunity of fighting in a competition in Lincoln on behalf of Rob and the Academy in 2011.
I have been coaching Karate since 2009 and more recently Muay Thai Boxing and Jeet Kune Do (JKD)
I trained with Wendy (also an Instructor at the Academy) for some years before we got married in 2014.
