ANTHONY CLAYDON
1/1

I began my Martial Arts training in 1985 in Lau Gar Kung Fu which I still practice today and is at the heart of the Nexus Martial Arts syllabus. I have also trained with some of the UK's leading Instructors in various Martial Arts, predominately in Karate and Kickboxing. 

​I achieved my 1st Degree Black Sash in Kung Fu and 1st Dan in Karate in 1990. Shortly after, I began teaching my first classes, specialising in teaching children and coaching competition fighters. I am currently a 6th Degree Black Sash, 3rd Dan Black Belt in Kickboxing and 2nd Dan Black Belt in Karate. 

I competed successfully for many years in Kung Fu, Karate, Kickboxing & Freestyle tournaments winning many titles along the way. I have represented Great Britain at the WAKO European Championships and the IAKSA World Championships. After winning the 2016 WAKO British Championships, I stepped away from competing to focus on coaching our established fighters and developing new members for the already successful Nexus fighting squad as we continue to compete in tournaments around the world.

It has always been a goal of mine to have a full time Studio and I’m proud to be Chief Instructor and founder of ‘Nexus Martial Arts and Fitness’.
