ABOUT 

I'm Tommy, and I teach martial arts. I specialise in blended historical and contemporary martial arts for the street, the ring, or anywhere else for that matter. Want to experience the power of Bartitsu, the victorian era's MMA? Let's do it. Want to try your hand at cutting edge urban combatives, Fillipino-style? Let's give it a whirl. It's all martial. It's all art. It's all good fun. I'd love to share some of my experiences with you. Here you can check out my classes, request a seminar or get in touch.

This is me!

I've been training in martial arts for over twenty years, including:

  • Boxing 

  • Pugilism (Bare Knuckle Boxing)

  • Savate (French Kickboxing)

  • Muay Thai 

  • Jeet Kune Do 

  • Karate 

  • Ju Jitsu 

  • Weapons (Western, Japanese, Fillipino)

  • RBSD (Reality Based Self Defence) 

These have all helped shaped what I do, how I teach and how I continue to learn. I tailor arts around the individuals I teach. Want to learn to fight in the ring / cage? Cool. Want to try a new hobby for fitness and fun. Cool. Want to learn to defend yourself? Also cool. Old, young, fat, fit, beginner or experienced - we can find a way forward together. 

What I teach...

Bartitsu

This is the original MMA of the western world. I teach a blend of traditional and modern Bartitsu. This art, founded by Edward Barton-Wright in the late Victorian era, combines boxing, Savate (French Kickboxing), classical Ju Jitsu, wrestling and weapon studies. Much like Jeet Kune Do, it is as much 'process' as it is 'product'. We take classical fighting methods,  stress test them, and keep the useful material.

Content is built around the individual and is designed to give a broad range of skills to help handle the variables of conflict. 

 

 

What I teach...

Bartitsu

This is the original MMA of the western world. I teach a blend of traditional and modern Bartitsu. This art, founded by Edward Barton-Wright in the late Victorian era, combines bare knuckle boxing, Savate (French Kickboxing), classical Ju Jitsu, wrestling and weapon studies.

 

Much like Jeet Kune Do, it is as much 'process' as it is 'product'. We take classical fighting methods,  stress test them, and keep the useful material. Content is built around the individual and is designed to give a broad range of skills to help handle the variables of conflict.

Fillipino Street Boxing

The Fillipino Street Boxing (or FS Box) I teach comes from my Guru, Nigel Tropman. It is a Reality Based Self Defence system built around the South East Asian arts of Kali and Silat. Its aim is to be 'more martial than art' and help students use hands, knees, heads, shoulders, elbows and everything in between to stay safe when faced with HAPV (Habitual Acts of Physical Violence). 

 

Using the footwork, philosophy and modular flow of SE Asian systems, alongside devastating strikes, dirty boxing and grappling, the FS Box system is purpose built for modern day self defence.
