Instructors Profiles
Lee Douglas - Academy Director
My martial arts training started with Judo at the age of 9, where I later qualified as a British Judo Association coach. Expanding into Ju Jitsu, I wanted to keep competing and started full contact Kickboxing via Nippon Kempo (Japanese Boxing). For a number of years I represented England and competed around Europe as the British Team Captain.

I started my Karate tutelage in Wado Ryu Karate and later in Kickboxing in my early twenties. After touring internationally for a series of years competing, I retired from competition after amassing and defending scores of titles and trophies including "light heavy weight World Champion" with the WKA in Malta.

European Kempo Silver Medalist (FENKA)
