Brief Bio

Originally from Scotland, I trained under Rick Young at his Blackbelt Academy in Edinburgh, and have been living in Japan since January 2001. I have trained in a number of martial arts, my main focus is grappling (no gi jiu-jitsu), Muay Thai, boxing, and Greco-Roman wrestling. I was originally affiliated to Takada dojo, training under Kazushi Sakuraba (2001-2002) and now I train free. My first professional fight was in Japan in 2003 (Demolition) and since then I have fought in RISE, D.O.G, Shootboxing, Tribelate, and CageForce. Over the years I have been very lucky to have had the opportunity to train with some PRIDE FC, K-1, and UFC fighters.
