I began training with Roy around 25 years ago. I also learned Brazilian Ju-Jitsu at the Straight Blast Gym in Manchester where I taught wrestling. I trained with a number of American wrestlers including coach Billy “Pops ” Wicks, an old school ‘Carney’ style catch wrestler who I maintained a close relationship with.

I own a club, Stockport Catch Wrestling and have had the privilege of coaching all around Europe making some great friends along the way. I have met some incredible people in wrestling and I consider the Wood family as my own and I know that they also see me as their family too.
