Jamie has been studying Martial Arts since late 1996. His first studies were at a traditional Kung Fu school, Fei Lung Kwan (or flying dragon society) after training there for three years Jamie transitioned over to Wutan.
Wutan is a martial arts school with 18+ schools in the UK teaching internal and external Martial arts styles including; Tai Chi, Ba Gua and Hsing-I, Wing Chun, Choy Lay Fut, Praying Mantis, Chang Chuan, kickboxing and 18 weapons systems.
Jamie trained here for 3.5 years enjoying the closed combat of Wing Chun, the expression of praying mantis and Chang Chuan. He also had the opportunity to learn many weapons including dual sticks and broad sword.
Following a move to London and trying several schools that didn’t hit the mark Jamie had a 3 year break from Martial arts before moving to Melbourne and finding Six Harmonies Martial Arts.
Jamie commenced his training with SHMA in 2007 and through his dedication and commitment he achieved the level of Black Sash in 2011. Since that time Jamie continued with his commitment to Martial Arts and by the end of 2014 he had successfully passed his 1st Degree Black Sash and became a Shifan (assistant instructor) at SHMA.
Jamie places all of his life success to what he continues to learn from being a Martial Artist and Assistant instructor;
“All of the determination, perseverance and hard work I apply in my life is down to the challenges and learning’s gained from Martial Arts. I categorically would not of had the same external successes and internal calm if I had not started and most importantly continued my Martial arts journey and that’s what I intend on still be doing at 90!”
“One of my great passions in life is instructing and training others to better themselves professionally, physically, mentally and emotionally, and I get to do that at Six Harmonies. I hope you join us on this journey.
