Paul started his Wing Chun journey in 2008, he was 18 years old and had no previous martial arts experience. Paul achieved his black belt in 2010, he trained 7 days a week even though the club was only open 2 days a week at that time, he would meet up with his training partners outside and also did private classes with Sifu Alun.
In December 2013 he achieved his 1st Technician level
In 2009 Paul showed an interest in becoming an instructor so that he could share what he was learning with as many people as possible. It was the passion of the Instructors that inspired him to make it happen, starting with helping the club grow by promoting the club in the city centre with Sifu Alex, to meet and greet new students and assisting the team with the classes.
In 2014 Paul started teaching Wing Chun full-time, running the Coventry club, teaching in local schools and assisting Sifu Alun in training the new instructors. He has run clubs and self defense sessions in secondary and primary schools to classes of 12-200.
In 2016 Paul reached out to Sifu Mauro To attend a Wing Tjun seminar in Italy which was being taught by Sigung Sergio. Impressed by the Skill Level Paul and his students have joined the IWKA family. Paul is a member of the Certified Instructor Training course ran by the IWKA for senior student and Technicians in the UK.
