Jimmy was born and raised in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and like most young men of that era gained a LOT of experience fighting on the streets whilst growing up.
Fast forward to age 23, Jimmy moved to Melbourne Australia where he now resides with his family and runs his famous garage school RAW Combatives in Melbourne. Jim has trained in the martial arts since the mid 80’s.
He has studied many Martial Methods, mostly Thai/Filipino along with variety of Reality Based methods of Self Protection. Raw Combatives is recognised as one of the best methods of RBSD/Combatives Training in Australia.
Jimmy is a full UC instructor as well as an instructor in Senshido International and Nasubukang of the Philippines. Jimmy teaches out of his garage school a variety of classes including UC and hosts Lee annually when he comes over to see Nox.
More recently Jimmy has a lot more exposure within the Combatives scene and is currently (June 2017) on his own European circuit of seminars after joining the International circuit.
