Richard Mitchener Self Defence & Fitness Instructor

Hi my name is Richard Mitchener and I am the self defence Instructor in Essex. My career background is in Retail Marketing, working for several national companies in senior management, in more recent years as a self employed Marketing consultant working in Essex.

Whilst at school I attended Judo classes for a number of years, and then in my 20’s & 30’s I trained in Karate for some “me time” away from work.

In early 2014 I met and trained with Combat Academy Instructors and Directors. I loved the edification and positivity within the group, I started training intensively with the organisation at various locations across the country.

I gained my level 3 Self Defence Instructor qualification, awarded by The UK Self Defence and Martial Arts Guild, in October 2014 and continue to develop my skills on an on-going basis.
