“I do agree with every comment fantastic instructor very patient with impressive knowledge” Agata

“Paul is a great instructor of martial arts. I could see from the first lesson that he has a vast experience in this domain. The things that he teaches are of great value to me.

“Paul is fantastic, he has a really positive approach and great at taking things at a pace where you will learn and he has great patience with my sons who are amazing me with how well they are doing.

I would not hesitate in recommending Paul as a great teacher and extremely knowledgeable martial artist.” Tony Parsons

He always gives you heads up on what’s going to be involved in the lessons. Doing videos to help with the understanding of the techniques. Schools should adopt this into the PE lessons as a form of defence against bullying.” Darren Rogers

I am 36 years old and have tried many things in my life from Karate, boxing, budo and more, this is the best I have tried and I will continue, this is also a massive reflection on Paul and the way he teaches I great top man top class, thank you so much” Kate Hookings

Paul is the most lovely and supportive guy you’ll ever meet, I always leave the class worn out but super upbeat and smiling.
Could not recommend more!
