Gary - Specialist Life Skills and Personal Safety Trainer
My entire career has been dedicated to training others both in a professional and community environment.
My role as a defensive tactics instructor saw me design and deliver training solutions to both Military and Police personnel for over 25 years.
Everything from soft skills training like communication and body language modules to more dynamic training including use of force and close quarter combat sessions.
My personal hobbies have since a young adult inspired my choice of career as I am an experienced and accomplished instructor in Wing Chun kung fu, Ju-Jitsu, Boxing and personal fitness.
Early in my professional career, I decided to use my knowledge to support vulnerable people and committed to developing numerous training solutions for young people and women.
I set up a charity called Young People are our Future to share this work with victims of bullying, domestic violence and knife crime. The charities work positively affected to lives of over 13,000 young people, 600 families and 10,000 working professionals.
A family man, I am blessed with an amazing wife, a handful of amazing kids and a beautiful granddaughter.
I now have the time, energy and experience to positively empower others with some real life skills through the Skillzing platform.
