CHIEF INSTRUCTOR -
Joe started his Martial Arts career at the tender age of 7 years old, taking up Kickboxing classes at a local club. During his time at this club he competed in small national tournaments winning his first trophy. After this he got the competing bug and wanted to take his training to the next level. Joe decided to join the prestigious London Predators coached by Master Curtis Page (Father of MMA Superstar Michael Page). With great support from his parents he travelled to training on a weekly basis in Epsom, Surrey and at weekends entered competitions nationwide. At the London Predators Joe gained his 1ST Degree Black Belt and had the opportunity to represent his country at the US Open held in Florida, WKA World Championships Italy and the WPKA World Championships in Corfu, where he gained his first World Title which proved not to be his last.
During his competition career one discipline caught Joe’s eye, Musical forms, a discipline combining Martial Art techniques, gymnastics moves and weapons into a performance routine choreographed to music. Joe started teaching himself this discipline starting from the bottom knowing nothing about this art form, to become one of the top forms competitors in the country. In 2004 Joe started training with triple World champion Ashley Beck who has now become a successful stunt man. Under Ashley’s guidance Joe started to progress his acrobatic skills, learning new Tricks and Flips which he incorporated in his routines. As a member of Ashley’s Team Evolution Forms Squad Joe won 6 x WAKO British titles, took home the WAKO Italian World Cup Globe Trophy in 2005 and become WAKO World Champion in 2006 in Croatia.
In 2007 Joe decided it was time to go it alone and pass on the incredible skills he has learnt to the next generation of Martial Artists. He opened Infinity Martial Arts Yeovil alongside his sister Ruth. In just one year the club boasted a hundred students and Joe was back on the competition circuit, this time to coach his own students.
Joe saw a space in the Media industry for a performance team offering the combined
talents of Martial Arts, Freerunning/Parkour and Breakdancing, he decided to form
Team Resurrection. Since its creation the team have performed live on TV in front
of thousands at such events Xfactor Live final at Wembley Arena, Big Brothers Bit
On The Side, Animekon Barbados, Reading Festival, Boardmasters Festival, Disneyland
Paris, Budo Gala and Cage Rage just to name a few. They have also featured in music
videos alongside artists The Wanted, Celebrity Alex Reid, D-
2010 Joe was asked to take up the post of Kata/Forms director for the International Sports Kickboxing Association, which he accepted. Since then he has trained the Team England squad for a number of international tournaments creating numerous World Champions.
Then came 2012. Joe was asked to come out of retirement and compete one more time at the World renowned Bercy Festival Of Martial Arts as a competitor in the “Bruce Lee Challenge” in front of 20,000 people live on Paris TV. He accepted the challenge and trained for 6 months which paid off when he won the the title.
Alongside running Somerset’s No.1 Freestyle Martial Arts club Joe has built up the South West Premier Sports Martial Arts competition “Infinity South West & Beyond” which has over 800 + people in attendance annually. He then moved into promoting Full Contact fight night events where he held 4 highly successful sold out events which were broadcast on Sky TV, called Infinity Full On.
Joe has been able to use his Martial Arts and Gymnastic ability to break into the
Film Industry working on a number of feature films including Hollywood blockbusters
Fury starring Brad Pitt, Green Street 3 starring Scott Adkins, Street Fighter Assassin’s
Fist, Instant Death starring original Incredible Hulk Lou Ferrigno and Of Gods &
Warriors starring Terrence Stamp to name just a few. Not only has Joe been in front
of the camera he has also taken the role as producer behind the camera in his first
feature Horror Comedy film Paintball Massacre starring comedian actress Katy Brand
