3rd Dan Black Belt

"Teaching Martial Arts is, without a doubt, one of the most rewarding jobs in the world. 

Passing on my knowledge and passion to others every time I go to work.

I have been training for over 15 years and I still enjoy it as much as my first week!

I have competed at a high level with several ring fights and cage fights under my belt.

I believe finding the right Martial Arts club is a very personal choice. Kong is a family run club, by enthusiastic Instructors who will help you achieve your goals, whatever they are"

Bennett

2nd Dan Black Belt

"I realised I loved helping others in my first month and joined the coaching team straight away.

My passion lays in perfection. Whether thats my kicks, or fitness, I pride myself in knowing I've tried my best.

 

  I strongly believe I mirror this in my teaching. I make it my personal goal to help you every step of the way on your journey training.

 

I enjoy being a role model for our younger students. Kids of today don't always have great role models to look up to and I feel this is one of the many perks of the job "

ANGELO DUARTE

BJJ Brown Belt 

:

"I started Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) in 2011, looking for a martial art that could help me in grappling situations, and against larger opponents. I had seen how effective BJJ had been in MMA, gave it a try and was hooked immediately, it was challenging, technical, effective and fun.

I’m fortunate to have spent the next 9 years training under experienced Black Belts from Brazil, alongside an active team of experienced practitioners. I am a Brown Belt under André Pimenta (Carlson Gracie Team) and have competed at national and international tournaments throughout my training. 
I enjoy sharing what I’ve learned and helping people realise the benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu."

1st Dan Black Belt

"I truly believe having martial arts as a foundation in anyones life, will only have a positive effect.

 

My aim is to help students believe in themselves and achieve any goals they have set in life and the martial arts.

 

There is no greater privilege than being able to help people  become the best they can be.

 

Focus, respect, hardworking and dedication are just a few things needed on our journey. Oh and a love for Burpees!

 

I cannot wait to welcome you to our Kong family!"

DANIEL

1st Dan Black Belt

"I have been teaching alongside Sarah for several years now and have enjoyed every second.

The team down at Kong is incredible and I love being a part of the family.

 

I have a busy life - like most. And living over 200 miles away in Wales doesnt maake it any easier to get down. But you'll catch me once week a month at Kong, enjoying every minute I'm there.

Trying to better my teaching and personal ability. 

 

truly enjoy helping people push their comfort zones, and learning where their limits are.

 

Achieving my blackbelt was the hardest and most rewarding thing I've ever done. I am grateful for every instructor that helped me along the way.

I want to help you during your journey."
