ABOUT ME

 

Training under, and taking inspiration from Darryl Edwards (The Fitness Explorer), my coaches at Parkour Generations, Frank Forenich, and being a keen student of the Ido Portal Method / Movement Culture and Erwan Le Corre's Movnat and Natural Movement, I became a Gloves Club coach, a West Hampstead gym specialising in boxing, natural movement and barefoot running. I brought a practical/useful movement element to The Gloves Club movement philosophy, borrowing from many elements and to paraphrase Ido Portal, "making movement his dogma". I heavily influenced the direction of the Gloves philosophy and the classes I taught with the methods of my peers and teachers. I owe what I am today "...by standing on the shoulders of giants."

I teach movement to a vibrant London community mainly outside in a natural environment in a variety of disciplines helping people develop their own movement practice. I have been lucky to teach Natural Movement all over Europe certifying Natural Movement coaches working for Movnat. 

I am currently training under, and taking inspiration from the tutelage of Rafe Kelley (Evolve Move Play). Over the last four years I've have learnt and taken inspiration from Ido Portal Method, Tom Weksler, Rootless Root's Fighting Monkey and I'm a London based level II Movnat Certified Trainer (MCT) under Joseph Bartz, a friend, teacher and amazing coach and the next generation of movement teachers.

I hold private 1:1 sessions with my clients, and conduct group classes indoors and outdoors and hold workshops in London, and around the UK. I continue to draw movement inspiration from any and all quality sources, one of the most important being the profound learning experience of being a father to my two children, a loving husband and trying to be a better human! To use my talents, resources and opportunities to serve my family, community, habitat and the world.
