If you are a decent, honest soul who wishes to start or continue a self-improvement journey then apply to become my student.
I have spent my lifetime studying and teaching the “Art”
I always consider myself a student of the arts and hopefully, will continue to learn and grow.
I can teach you: My Seven Stars

1*: British Close Quarter Combat: 🇬🇧
MCK49 Close Quarter Combatives:

The Seminars include, Bodyguard Skills, Restraints, CQB, Shoot Wrestling, Security & Military Combat, Weapons, Fitness Training, Strength Training.

2*: Chinese Martial Arts: 🇨🇳
I studied in the People’s Republic of China

I have as my Masters the most skilled of Chinese martial artists. I am highly graded with them and was graded and awarded the title “Master” in 1990 by my wonderful Jing Wu Master Grandmaster Jifu Huang R.I.P.

I have studied and teach many styles of Shaolin Wushu and Kung Fu. My Chinese system is a practical fighting system with many routines. It incorporates External (Wei Jia) and Internal (Nei Jia) schools. Included are the styles of Northern and Southern Shaolin, Changquan, Nanquan, Zhaquan, Taijiquan, Baqua Quan, Hsing-I Quan, Weapons etc. also Sanda (which is full contact sparring with throws).

My main (there are others to whom I am grateful) living Chinese Masters are:
Master Xu Hao – Peoples Republic of China –Highly graded Wushu Professor from Chengdu University. In 1987 Professor Hao accepted me as a “Men Nei Di Zi” (Closed Door Personal Student)
Master Hao is very precious to me.

Master Han Jin Song – Peoples Republic of China – Highly graded Wushu Professor from Beijing University. In 1987 Professor Han accepted me as a “Men Nei Di Zi” (Closed Door Personal Student)

Grandmaster Men Hui Feng – Peoples Republic of China.Master Han is very precious to me.

Professor Men Hui Feng is one of the most accomplished and famous Wushu Masters in the world. He is a university professor of Wushu to the University of Beijing and is named by the Chinese government as one of the top 10 practitioners in the world. Professor Men formulates the arrest and restraint, unarmed combat system for the Chinese (PLA) army and security forces.

He is famous for creating the Sun Style Chinese National Competition Form, the 48 step combined taijiquan and the 42 step International competition taijiquan form and taijijian (taiji sword) forms.

In 2000 he created and launched Dong Yue Style Taiji. The Chinese government had asked him to formulate a new style of taiji to celebrate the millennium. On 01/01/2008 Professor Men performed the new taiji on the summit of Mount Dong Yue (a holy mountain in China). It was filmed live by Chinese military helicopters and broadcast across Asia to 1.4 billion people.

In 2008 Professor Men accepted me as a “Men Nei Di Zi” (Closed Door Personal Student) and appointed me as President of the British branch of Dong Yue Taijiquan Association. I first met Professor Men in 1986/7 in Beijing where I was studying Taijiquan and Wushu.

Grandmaster Gan Gui Xiang – Peoples Republic of China – My Chen Style Taijiquan MasterProfessor Gan Gui Xiang is the wife of Grandmaster Men Hui Feng and is famous for creating one of the most popular forms of taijiquan, the Chen Style competition form. She was named by China as one of the current generation of Chen style taijiquan grandmasters (there were 6 masters named). She also had significant contribution to the composition of the recent Dong Yue Style Taijiquan created by Men Hui Feng.) In 2008 Professor Gan accepted me as a “Men Nei Di Zi” (Closed Door Personal Student). I first met Professor Gan in 1986/7 in Beijing where I was studying Taijiquan and Wushu

I have had several other Chinese Masters who sadly are now deceased but to whom I owe a debt of gratitude. They include, but not limited to, Grandmaster Jifu Huang of British Jing Wu Association. Professor Huang was of immense help to me and I miss him dearly. Professor Zhang Zheng Huang of Chinese Wushu Association Beijing. He was one of the group that demonstrated Wushu for the first time outside China at the 1936 Olympic games at the request of Adolf Hitler. They are still in my heart and my teachings. I pass on this lineage through my Wushu/ Kung Fu classes.

Sporting aspect…My students have won competitions at National and International level in wushu, tai chi and weapons in the British Council for Chinese Martial Arts

National Tournaments. My students have also won first places in International Tournaments.

British, European and World Champion Students of whom I am very proud.

3*: Japanese Martial Arts 🇯🇵
I have a formidable reputation and long documented history in this field.
My Ikken Hissatsu Karate class is both traditional and practical.
My Japanese Martial Skills include many styles focusing mainly on Karate.
I have always studied, practised and taught my Japanese skills from a practical aspect I have never been interested in the sporting side. I worked in real world security for many years surviving and flourishing by using these skills. I have an impeccable, long and documented history and my Japanese styles senseis have an impeccable lineage.
My styles: I started Judo at the age of 8yrs old and have studied it ever since. I studied Aikido and Iaedo under the great Shihan Terry Ezra for several years. I studied JuJitsu on Merseyside for a several years. I studied Combat Israeli Jujitsu with Sensei O. Ambar who visited Britain to study under me but was kind enough to grade me 3rd dan within his Israeli system. I initially studied Shotokan Karate with Sensei Michael O’Riley from the Red Triangle for many years and he was a very great influence on me. Through him I studied under Sensei Frank Vernon of the Red Triangle. My other early Karate and Kobudo Influences include Sensei D. Davies (Shotokan) (great influence), Sensei Gary Spiers (Goju Ryu) (great influence), Sensei Dave Scott (Uechi Ryu), Sensei D. Martin (Goju Ryu), Sensei T. O’Neill (Shotokan) (greatest influence), Sensei D. Connor (Wado Ryu) (greatest influence). I graded from 1st to 5th dan with the great Sensei Danny Connor of the BKA.
I started Chien Karate Club in 1974. In 1978, I formed Wirral Karate Association. In the early 1980’s, I established “Zhan You” (Battle Companions) Full Contact Karate Squad as the Full Contact Squad within Wirral Karate Association. In 1989, I formed Transformers Freestyle Karate Squad. Although I have never been interested in Sports Karate, (my interest is purely practical), my students won British individual and team Kumite titles at the British Karate Association National Tournaments.
I currently pass on this knowledge through my Ikken Hissatsu Karate Club. This was formed in 2015 at the request of my students. It is a very practical Karate system, focusing on severe techniques, but incorporating Katas from Shotokan (my first Karate style), other Karate styles, and in keeping with the origin of Karate, some Chinese Kata.
I am grateful to my early Karate Senseis for their teachings and to my friend the great Sensei Terry O’Neill for his support.
