Russ Williams

When Russ first started training in the Martial Arts he wasn’t happy with the way a lot of the styles were taught. He felt someone would have to train for at least a good few months before it would have done any good if attacked on the street.
Russ wanted to learn a style that you could teach someone today and it’d help them straight away if they were attacked.
He started experimenting with different styles. He then saw a feature about Thai Boxing on a Granada Reports News Programme and went to train with Master Toddy.
At first he found the change over really difficult until Ronnie Green [who was then the European Thai Boxing Champion] showed him how to gradually change his style of training.
Russ Williams then became the first Thai & KIckboxing instructor in Wales. After winnning a British Thai Boxing title Russ fought and managed to knock out Tommy Van Der Burg from the famous Meijro Gym in Amsterdam to win his first European title. 
A year later Russ with the help of Master Toddy started his own fight night promotions. Russ then switched to fighting Kick Boxing. Russ became British Champion at 3 different weights, then beat Rico Brockington from Palm Beach Florida USA to become Undisputed World Kickboxing Champion. To celebrate Russ was invited with his brother Barry to have lunch at the House Of Commons in London with the Sports Minister
