Colin has been a martial arts enthusiast for many years and has studied many systems such as – Tae Kwon Do, Jeet Kune Do, Shaolin Kung Fu and Krav Maga. In 2005 Colin gained a silver medal competing in the British Championship’s Heavy Weight Sparring category and then finished in the last 16 of the World Tae Kwon Do Championship’s fighting in the same weight category. What makes this even more of an achievement is that the British Championship’s was only Colin’s second try and competing at an event.


After competing in Tae Kwon Do, Colin moved his attention to studying Commando Krav Maga which is a reality based self defence system and in 2007, Colin become an instructor. Then in 2009, Colin decided that he had obtained so much knowledge in martial arts and reality based self defence systems over the years, that he would develop his own system using all his knowledge.

The Street Defence system was born in October 2009 and has gone from strength to strength from day one. Colin has used the system to train body guards, children and even police officers. Colin feels that the Street Defence system can be picked up by anyone, even if you have not had any training in self defence before.
