Within around a year of training and several stone lighter, he soon started traveling to various interclubs and competitions across the country, with great success, racking up the fights, as well as balancing a demanding, full-time job.

Chris Carley (Carley's thai boxing)

Iceni are very lucky to host the extremely talented and wizard-like, Chris Carley.

One of the best coaches in the UK, Chris Carley has been involved with martial arts since he was 11 years old and over this time has developed a very open-minded approach to his martial arts training.

It was while Chris was training at Dan Inosanto's Academy in Los Angeles, that he attended a Thai Boxing seminar led by Master Chai Sirisute.

Chris recalls, "This was the first time that I saw a Thai doing Thai Boxing, and it blew me away. I watched Master Chai Sirisute striking the bag, and it was poetry in motion. I remember thinking, "That is perfection, and I want to be just like that." Speed, poise, balance, power. Everything. I watched him, and it all made sense."
