TEK FIGHT SQUAD COACH
OVER 9 YEARS MARTIAL ARTS EXPERIENCE
What would you say is the biggest challenge about being a Tek Elite Coach:
I’d have to say it would be getting the variety so every class is different from the last, yet the students are always benefiting and enjoying it!
Your top 3 favourite films:
First would definitely be Hacksaw Ridge such a beautiful war time film that I could watch on repeat, that would closely be followed by The Last Samurai and then 8 mile!
You have always wanted to:
Number 1 would 100% be travel the world! I would love to experience different cultures and celebrations while meeting such a variety of people.
Why did you want to become a Tek Coach:
I wanted to be a Tek Coach as I’ve always wanted to hand down the knowledge I’ve gained to new students to build them as kickboxers and expand their knowledge of the martial art.
The Lamborghini Aventador is a beast and would have to be the car for me!
How do you unwind:
I unwind in a few ways either by chilling and watching Netflix, going out to Nando’s and the cinema or gaming on the PS4
If you was in a band, what would it be called:
If I was to be in a band I’d call it ‘The Technicians’ due to my love for gadgets and technology!
Your favourite phrase:
One of my favourite phrases is ‘Don’t wait for the storm to pass learn to dance in the rain!’
What inspires you:
I’m inspired by multiple things, one being the paralympics, seeing those amazing athletes pushing their bodies and minds to the limit.
On my way to Tek I:
Always listening to music just hopping along! But also I’m in the car with Saf so having banter and jokes along the way!
My favourite naughty drink is:
Oooooohhhh I’ve got to say ammeretto! I’ve had it twice but I LOVE the marzipan taste! O and we have it at home!
The best piece of advice I’ve ever had:
Errrrrr it would be never stop pushing, and day by day try to become a better person!
