Neil began Boxing in his early 20’s, purely to keep fit & learn some self-Defence. He learned valuable experience and confidence from his time spent training in this. Neil decided to enroll on a HND course in Fitness, Health & Exercise at Forth Valley College and graduated with an overall “A” and distinction.
It was halfway through his first year at college that Neil discovered Krav Maga and loved it. After only 18 months training, he enrolled on and passed the KMG General Instructor Course (GIC) in May 2012. He currently holds the rank of Graduate level 5 Instructor and is currently preparing for the Expert Level 1 test in Israel.
Neil is also a Krav Junior instructor and teaches a thriving kids class in the Newland’s area of Glasgow. His open approach to teaching and natural sense of humour has seen his Krav Junior classes become a big hit in the area and growing rapidly.
Neil trains in Boxing, Kickboxing and Grappling weekly to help evolve his learning, appreciation and ability of the Martial Arts.
Neil lives with his wife Claire and 2 Sons in Glasgow’s Southside. He can be found teaching at the Tactical Defence classes in Dennistoun, City Centre and Newland’s.
