Chris is a qualified Martial Arts instructor. He began training in karate at the age of 13 years old. Over the next 30 years Chris has continued to train and extend his passion for the martial arts and close combat training.
In 2016 Shizoku Martial Arts was opened by Chris to pass on his knowledge and training of life skills & mental wellbeing delivered through martial Arts to the next generation.
Chris says that ‘basic self defence skills are for anyone and everyone. Being prepared for the worst and confident you can protect yourself or your loved ones is so important.’
We recommend seeking your doctor’s advice before undertaking any form of physical training or have a word with the instructor. Close Quarters Combat can be both physically and mentally demanding.
