mike's experience

Having always been a fan of the martial arts since childhood, Mike has trained in various other styles and combat sports such as Boxing, Judo, Wrestling and Karate to name a few but Brazilian Jiu jitsu proved to be the one for him. This was for the simple reason that BJJ kept his mind active and he continued to problem solve long after the training session had ended, troubleshooting escapes, counter-attacks and failed submission attempts would keep replaying in his mind and the feeling of overcoming a lingering technical hindrance is what really makes him tick.

Mike soon found himself helping teach classes for beginners and kids due to his constant presence on the mats, the satisfaction he gained from teaching coupled with his deep-seated desire to reach the pinnacle of his abilities in the sport, drove him to choose his life-long career as a BJJ instructor at the early age of 19. Since then, Mike has travelled from the U.K to the Americas to Japan to Singapore among countless other nations in order to compete/train with some of the very best practitioners in the sport. Mike has recently returned home to London, after having co-founded two major BJJ academies in South-East Asia to lead the BJJ program here at Hampstead MMA.
