“Mark is responsible for my passion for martial arts. He is a brilliant teacher; very understanding, patient and good at challenging students of all abilities. His classes encouraged me to learn new skills, meet lots of new people and become fitter than ever. Since moving away for university I have tried numerous other martial arts clubs and not been able to find an instructor as good as Mark.”


“Recommendation- had never tried martial arts before but, coming into this as a novice, the instructor made me feel really welcome and was incredibly patience. Have really enjoyed classes and the bonus is that I've have come fitter and lost weight!”


“I trained with Mark for a number of years in the North east, he is a great instructor. He is patient but firm, I would train with him any day if he was up here. He also has the time and patience for every grade from children to adults. He is the real life kung fu panda!! Spinning turning kicks amazing. Miss training with him loads!!”


“Before I started kickboxing I struggled with my confidence and really wanted to become more outgoing and improve my fitness at the same time. Mark made me feel very welcome starting the class and gave me the confidence to try new techniques right from the first lesson. I always found it extremely helpful the way Mark broke down each technique into manageable chunks to ensure you understood each move before improving your speed and power. Mark could apply each individual technique into a real life situation. We were always encouraged to ask questions and he would happily show us the application of what we were doing, which made learning the moves easier. Overall, I loved being part of the community Mark created. The skills I learnt in Mark's sessions have stuck with me through the years. Not only did I become fitter (as the classes always challenged your fitness!) but I became I much more confident person.”


“Highly recommended instructor with wonderful classes which are always well thought through and varied. You can learn in a fun and friendly environment whilst always feeling that you have progressed and have taken something new away from the session.”
