Tony

Hi! My name is Tony and I am the founder and senior tutor of M&M Academy.

I have gained over 12 years teaching and coaching experience, both within an educational setting such as schools, as well as the more personalised training required to be a successful Taekwondo Instructor.

I started my guitar journey at the age of 8 when my Grandfather taught me ‘The House of the Rising Sun’ on his twelve string acoustic guitar and my love of music has blossomed ever since.

Meanwhile my Taekwondo journey began at the age of 11, when I accompanied a good friend to Master Bradshaw’s class with the TAGB at Alfreton Leisure Centre. I have since participated in multiple championships, gained my Blackbelt and trained to become a qualified Instructor.

I love what I do and want nothing more than to share my knowledge and help others to learn to love them too.
