The Martial Spirit Team
Meet the world class instructors that make up the Martial Spirit Family
A life long student and teacher of martial arts, I co-founded Martial Spirit to provide people an environment dedicated to the path of self development through martial arts. For our team, training and practice is a lifestyle choice – we live and breath it everyday. I encourage you to visit our family and experience our culture. Take the first step – you wont regret it.
Martial arts is a passion and personal journey of growth and self discovery. I began my journey in Malaysia at the age of 9, practicing Aikido and have since expanded my practice to include Muay Thai, Boxing, Judo, BJJ and Weaponry. Currently, I teach Aikido to adults and children. I compete professionally and coach in Muay Thai, and train alongside the team in the various martial arts we offer.
I have trained in Muay Thai for over 7 years and been teaching for 3. I’ve also trained in BJJ, Judo, Boxing, Taekwondo, Aikido and Wrestling. Martial Arts is a big part of my life and I enjoy sharing what I love about it whether it be the physical or mental side.
I have a deep passion for Boxing which began at 13 years old when I first walked into a boxing gym, I have gone on to compete and coach at an elite level and travel the world immersing myself in the knowledge and culture of the sport. My goal is to introduce people to the sport in an intelligent and safe manner regardless of their aspirations. My teaching focuses on the fundamental skill and strategy of boxing, developing participants into highly skilled athletes and knowledgeable boxing fans.
I have been training and teaching martial arts for over 35 years. I am currently a 4th Dan in Judo and also a licensed referee with JVI and OJU. Judo is a passion and way of life I love sharing with my students.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Starting BJJ in my early 20’s, I’ve been continuously fascinated by the interplay of critical thinking and creativity that is requisite to succeed in the art. That a playfulness seemingly underlines a logical and scientific endeavour has always resonated with me, and is an ethos I aim to share with my students.
Strength & Conditioning
Strength training has been a passion of mine for many years and I particularly love its physical and mental challenges. I’m a certified Weight Lifting Coach and enjoy the technical aspect and how the explosive power translates to all sports especially Martial Arts. I believe there is an athlete in everyone.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
My Martial arts journey started at the age of 12, through to 16, in Taekwondo. After stopping practice, I always wanted to get back into Martial arts and eventually learnt about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I have been practicing for 5 years. I’m Obsessed and can’t get enough!
Boxing has had a profound impact on my life. It has taken me from my humble beginnings to an athlete on an elite stage.
I am honoured to be able to share my knowledge of the sport and be part of the martial arts community. The beauty of the sport lies in how elegant, simple yet wonderfully complex it can be, hence the moniker ‘the sweet science.’
I had always wanted to learn a martial art. I finally started training in aikido 13 years ago under Peter Sensei. Aikido quickly became a strong element of my life, and I love exploring aiki principles in and outside class! Four years ago, I began to learn BJJ, which has provided me with different challenges.
My martial arts journey now includes teaching aikido. It’s very rewarding to help others discover aikido and I hope I can pass on some of the insights that I have gained in my training, both from my teachers and my own practice.
