June 2018 was the mark of 34 years of my journey through Taekwondo, it also marks 18 years of running my own Taekwondo school. 
I became a personal trainer in 2005, where my life changed forever and has been steaming ahead on a journey that I could never have imagined. 
Since qualifying as a personal trainer, I continued to develop my skills by completing courses as I understand the importance to continually developing and have achieved a number of specialist Level 4 courses. 
I also achieved a massive personal goal in 2012 when I took on my first unit, meaning that I had my own Do Jang for my School of Taekwondo, the following year, I had a second unit, so I could then also have a separate studio solely for personal training. 
I met Eddie Quinn at a workshop in 2012 held by a fellow Martial Artist, where Eddie was teaching The Approach Self Protection Method. A year later after a lot of thought I decided to become an Approach instructor, as I found the simplicity and effectiveness of it, was very easy to learn for people that didn’t want to learn a Martial Art and I have continued with the Approach training ever since, including becoming a Level 2 Instructor. 
For my Taekwondo, I am currently studying under Grand Master Hopwood in preparation for my 8th Degree Black Belt. Alongside GM Hopwood I also study Silat Fitrah under Guru Eddie Quinn as a private student once a week in Birmingham and attend his monthly class, where I love being a student amongst fellow students. 
For my personal training, I also see Stuart McDonald, who is my personal trainer at his personal training studio True Fitness in Birmingham every week, it is through Stuart that I met Paul Gray and I now also study under Paul through his online mentorship program, alongside courses at his premises in Durham.
