Academy Owner, Cobra Life
My name is Gavin Eastham and I have over 30 years experience in the Martial Arts. I am a fully qualified Instructor, fully insured (both liability and indemnity), first aid qualified and Enhanced DBS checked (formerly CRB).
I have studied in various styles including WTF Taekwondo, ITF Taekwondo,Muay Thai, Boxing, Wado-Ryu Karate, Kickboxing and Okinawan Weaponry.
I currently hold 3rd Dan ranks in Karate, Kickboxing and 2nd Dan Iaido and 1st Dan Ranks in various Okinawan Weaponry as well as a couple of kyu/kup grades in others.
I take my training seriously and allow the six principles of: Perseverance, Self Control, Indomitable Spirit, Integrity, Courtesy and Humbleness to improve every part of my life; professionally and personally. However, there is one thing that I take more seriously and that’s teaching. I am extremely privileged to be able to pass the knowledge I have onto others in a way that’s relaxed, fun and efficient. I don’t take my job for granted. I appreciate and soak in every moment I have to be able to help improve individuals maybe in a way they never thought possible.
Children are our future so why would we not want fitter, more confident, better disciplined, bully resistant, kidnap resistant, emergency prepared, altogether well rounded ones? It’s a no brainer. You’re great parents, I know that and so should you, so why not allow one of our programmes to supplement and enhance your hard work?
