Andy is an Apprentice UC Instructor, is on the 2019 Instructor Development Programme and is based in Staffordshire.
He has been involved in martial activities for over 30 years, initially starting with traditional karate, then moving into combat sports including thai boxing, western boxing, wrestling, bjj and MMA. He holds coaching qualifications in many of these areas. He is also a British Combat Association Self Protection Instructor, a level 2 Real Combat System Instructor and also a qualified Krav Maga civilian & women’s instructor.
As well as regularly training in Urban Combatives for the past four years, he also continues to cross train in striking arts and grappling and remains active in shooting disciplines.
In addition to being an enthusiastic practitioner of self protection, he gets a real kick from teaching & continuing to learn and firmly believes the old adage of “an instructor always needing to remain a student.”
Andy is currently active as an assistant instructor in UCworkshops in the Midlands and is currently in the process of establishing UC Staffordshire, pending successful completion of the IDP.
