Muswell Hill Personal Training - September 2019
A client from Muswell Hill contacted me via my website and booked in for 2 private 90 minute sessions. They wanted the sessions designed for practical martial arts and self defence, and for key personal security skills relevant to travelling as they were a regular traveller abroad.

Highgate Personal Training July 2019
After a 10 minute initial consultation they had no injuries or conditions and were currently fit and healthy and wanted the session totally focussed on self defence. Client 1 mentioned to me he use to train in ITF Taekwondo for a few years whilst at university and found it too demanding and was not very focussed on societies dangers, and wanted a package of natural and simple self defence techniques. Client 2 was a beginner and wanted a boost in confidence, self assurance, personal protection and general fitness.
