I am a painter and decorator by trade and as a tradesman Iíd neglected my health and well being for many years. My poor life style choices had started to catch up with me as I was a heavy smoker, and drinker and Iíd also started to put on a lot of weight. My outlook on life was negative and I felt out of control Ė I knew it was time to make some drastic changes.
One evening I searched the internet for a martial arts school, as I been a part of one in my youth and I wanted to regain control, focus and discipline back into my life.
When I found Eye Of The Eagle Martial Arts I was instantly drawn to them and I knew straight away they could help me, so that night I made the call that changed my life.
Grand Master Sifu made a major impact on me right from our first meeting. He asked about my life and what I wanted to gain from his school. I was so impressed how he listened to my story and took me under his wing, as he genuinely wanted to help me achieve my dreams and goals.
After 3 years of training and hard work Master Sifu helped me turn my life around. Iím currently now a brown belt and Iím fitter than Iíve ever been before with a renewed respect for my body and mental wellbeing.
Iíve also been privileged to share this journey with my youngest son Logan who also needed focus and direction. Eye Of The Eagle Martial Arts is a great academy as they cater for all ages, from children right through to seniors. Master Sifu makes everyone feel welcome; itís just like being part of a big family of likeminded individuals who really care about each other.
I am looking to open my own school and Iím very excited about passing this gift onto other students so they too can benefit from these skills they will have for life.
I continue to grow and develop my skills under the direction of Grand Master Sifu (Bill Azizi) with all his knowledge in martial arts, he is a huge inspiration in my life and my dream is to one day walk in his shoes.
