My Martial Arts journey began, over 20 years ago, in 2001. I joined Meridian Kung Fu at the age of 4, when my only experience of martial arts was watching Sifu Steve and Sifu Sata training and teaching at MKF HQ. I have been brought up in and around the school so Meridian is like a second home to me.

Throughout my childhood I saw and was involved in the progression of Meridian (You may recognise me in the pictures/videos from age 4 up until now). To see what it has become today is incredible and even more amazing that I get to continually train alongside such experts in this field as well as instruct for HQ, but also in my own branches now held in Leigh-On-Sea & Eastwood.

I joined the Junior MKF Coaching Team from the age of 11 learning continually until I reached 19 years old, where I got the opportunity to run my own branch in Leigh-On-Sea. 4 years later and I now run 12 classes in the SS9 Postcode each week, as well as running all Kids Elite Training Groups (Weapons Training) and regular classes at our main HQ for Kids; overall teaching around 500 kids every week!)

My goal is to pass as much knowledge and wisdom to the youth of today, I find I can understand and get across exactly what & how the children need to learn because I have been through everything they will go through, as I have been in their position before.

Through Wing Chun, not only have I learnt to become confident in my personal abilities in the art, but I also learn to challenge myself every day to improve in all aspects of life. Furthermore, I have found that the principles I have learnt have carried over into some of the most difficult, and also the best parts of life. I am a keen student in Wing Chun Kung Fu alongside personal development. My passion for the art and personal growth becomes stronger as I get older!
