After realising the limitations of traditional martial arts in real life self defence situations, Ben discovered Urban Krav Maga  and began training with Mark in 2010 before qualifying as an instructor in 2016. Ben took over the Sussex Urban Krav Maga Club from Mark at the start of 2017. He regularly attends training sessions and seminars with the chief instructors of Urban Krav Maga in order to keep up to date with the evolving world of self defence.

Mark is registered instructor with the British Combat Association, an instructor in Urban Krav Maga, included on the register of self-protection instructors and affiliated to the UK Martial Arts Alliance with over 30 years experience in Martial Arts.
Mark started his travels in martial arts with amateur Boxing in the 70's leading to Lau Gar Kung Fu where during the 80's he fought National Level in the WAKO championships and trained with the England squad. Following this he took up Wing Chun where he studied privately under the inspirational teaching of Sifu Mark Phillips for 10 years.

In 2005 Mark discovered Krav Maga, initially with the KMF and then the British Academy of Krav Maga, where he helped open its first school in Kent.

A further move, this time into Sussex, led to a brief dalliance with Commando Krav Maga, before ultimately joining with Stewart McGill at the founding of the Urban Krav Maga system.

Mark is a lifetime member of NABBA and experienced in Kettlebell, Indian Clubs, Functional Fitness and is a qualified MMA Conditioning coach.

He has trained Pro MMA Fighters both for conditioning and techniques and has published the 'Self Defence Guide to Surviving the Top 10 Attacks'.
