Client Testimonials / Endorsements

The main benefit that I have gained from John’s my coaching was that I started to practice a martial art –

This is something I had been planning to do for years but could not get to – because of work and family commitments. 

It has been a great success having John’s kind support, listening, and questioning skills. 

I have been enjoying Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) for 2 years so far. 

Jonathan was great at supporting me and after every session, he offered great feedback, and I felt energised and optimistic about the future.

10 sessions every 2 weeks. Perfect. 

Highly recommend John’s services.
