Martial Arts History :
I started training with Master Ian Soame 6th Dan Black Belt in 1984 and achieved Black Belt status in 1989. This was followed by my 2nd Dan in 1996, 3rd Dan in 1999 and 4th Dan in 2003. I was successful in achieving my Masters 5th Dan on 18th may 2008. Apart from Tae Kwon Do I’ve enjoyed training in various Martial Arts, which have included Wingchun, Judo, Aikido, Rapid Arnis and Jujitsu.
I achieved my Level 1 Coaching in 1996, Level 2 Coaching in 1998 and my UKASKO / UKMAF Black Belt Dan Grading Examiner Qualification in 2000. I’m also a qualified First Aider.
I was Saracen Martial Arts first Black Belt and am currently running training classes at Great Hockham in Norfolk. My Students are of all ages and of all Grades. At this time Saracen Martial Arts has 122 Dan Grade passes to its credit.
Saracen Martial Arts has created ‘An Encyclopaedia of Tae Kwon Do’ CD ROM with the help of producer Dr Phil Davies and large numbers have been sold over the world.
I’m happily married to Lynne and we have 2 children Lauren & Megan. Lynne is a 4th Dan Black Belt and Level 2 Coach, Lauren & Megan are both 2nd Dan Black Belts.
