Gareth is currently the joint instructor of Swanwick Taekwon-Do with Adam Blake. and Landau Forte Taekwon-Do, Derby with Adam and Gavin Bradshaw.
I started Taekwon-Do nearly 12 years ago at the age of 23, receiving my black belt with PUMA in 2010 and then my 2nd degree in 2013.
For a number of years I trained in both kickboxing and Taekwon-Do, gaining a black belt in kickboxing.
But decided to dedicate my time to Taekwon-Do and opened Swanwick Taekwon-Do with Adam Blake in 2014.
In 2016 Adam and I made the decision to join Heart of England and have watched our school go from strength to strength, with the help of Master Bradshaw and Mrs Bradshaw. And also with the support of all of the other instructors within the group.
Since joining Heart of England I’ve regained my enthusiasm for taekwon-Do and have done so much already. I went on the annual winter training camp in February, where we had intensive training with Master Bradshaw 3 hours a day for two weeks. I have also been invited to compete in Argentina as part of the elite men’s team in August 2017. I am also hoping to grade for my third degree black belt in October as well.
We are also looking to open another school later this year (2017) with Gavin Bradshaw 4th degree.
