Instructor Steve completed his Real Combat System Instructors training with two of Geoff Thompson's most accomplished and respected students Matty Evans and Tony Somers.

Currently Steve is one of only 16 people worldwide who have achieved the qualification of a Level Two Instructor in The Real Combat System, and is a registered instructor with the British Combat Association.

He has a background in Boxing and Krav Maga, as well as The Real Combat System. 


Steve is also a qualified Health and Safety consultant to businesses across the UK, and is a Chartered Member of The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health.

He has advised and trained companies on all aspects of personal safety, protection and defensive techniques; and continues to advise companies who have employees working abroad in high security risk environments. 

As a self defence instructor Steve is not just  gym trained, he has experienced conflict at street level and professionally through door work.

His philosophy on self defence is that it must be simple, instinctive and effective; "Violence is ugly, and my advice is always to escape if you can, however if escape is not possible and you have no other options than to defend yourself or loved ones, then in that moment you must be first, fast and ferocious until the threat is neutralised".   

"My goal is to give you the training and confidence to walk in peace, but also effectively deal with a situation should it arise"


Personal 1-2-1 training and mentoring sessions are available with Steve at weekends. Spaces are limited so please message via the contacts page to register your interest.
