Martial Arts is my life, it is my sport, my mentor, my hero and my saviour. Growing up with a single mother and violent stepfathers in low income households and suburbs, I was exposed to drug and alcohol abuse, physical and emotional bullying, as well as many negative influences. I faced many challenges to survive in life, fortunately for me I found Martial Arts and it gave me direction and purpose, Martial Arts ignited my spirit to evolve and become, Martial Arts gave me humility and respect while at the same time instilling self-confidence and value, Martial Arts saved my life and made my life.


My love for combat sports is only rivalled by my passion to positively impact and contribute to the community and world around me. I am an 8 times World champion and the first and only man in history to win world titles in 3 different combat sports: Muay Thai, Kickboxing and Boxing. 28 years in the sport and I am as inspired as ever, coaching and guiding other through the sports and creating opportunity for other to thrive and achieve personal success.

Seeing people achieve is why I love coaching. I’ve been apart of people’s fitness journeys for 10 years and love helping people overcome obstacles to become happier healthier more confident versions of them self.


As a fighter myself I know the journey is not always a strait line of progression but “smooth waters never made for skilled sailors”
