I was so overwhelmed when I got my apprenticeship that I just about cried. It had to be one of the most emotional experiences of my life. It was right up there with being there for the birth of my children.I am so proud and fortunate to be associated with such an amazing instructor and such an incredable lineage. My website is if you'd like to have a look at it and my email is Good luck with the growth of your school. If I can ever help with anything just ask.

Hi G,

Go to Terry Joven's page and watch the Miscla Contras film, let me know what you think? It would be good to do something like that, maybe with padded sticks first A!!!
See you soon,

Hi Gary,

When are you going to do the dagger day training course??? I have to try and fix the slam man as the boss said no to a new one and if it is not fix then down the dump with it. See you on the 16th.

Hi Gary,
Thank you for the invite to the site, Its good to see what others have to say from around the world. The back is doing Ok, I have been putting a lot of training at home in so I hope you see the deferent’s when you see me, also today I broke my slam man in half, I when in for a grab hold and kneed it hard as it hurt my knee, but as I stepped back I found it slumped over. I have taken it apart and found I have broken the 6 inch rubber core in half. I have also got me up to 50 push ups and 50 sit ups, the sit ups is the hardest but I am getting their with the back pain. I am thinking of getting a car suspension spring and drilling and fixing it to the slam man to make a new one which would be a lot stronger.
