Toby Thompson

My interest in Martial Arts started at an early age watching Martial Artists such as Jackie Chan, Jet Lei and Bruce Lee, watching their movies inspired me to want to be just like them at an early age. My parents couldn’t afford to pay for tuition as we were a family with 4 children; also, there weren't  the classes and opportunities that there are today so I didn’t manage to join any clubs.

At the later age of 21 I went to my first martial arts class and after that first lesson I was hooked wanting to learn as much as I could about it and achieved my first Black Belt 1st Dan in kickboxing after 3 years of training in the sport.

After achieving my Black Belt I lost interest in the training as there were no new challenges and no structure or program for Black Belts so I had a break from training for probably about a year.

After some time I got the hunger back to start training again and found the club “the Lee Matthews Black Belt Academy" where I trained hard for another 2 years and achieved my Black Belt there too.

After getting my Black Belt I started teaching at the" Lee Matthews Black Belt Academy" and worked my way up to Senior Instructor and Manager at the main academy in  Tweedale Telford and now 3rd Dan in Sport Karate and 3rd Dan Kickboxing

During my time at Lees I’ve taught and shared my knowledge with hundreds of children and adults from the ages 4 and upwards, I have schools in Telford, Codsall, Shifnal and Albrighton.

My passions are contact sports I enjoy training in MMA Boxing, BJJ, Wrestling, Karate, Maui Thai and Kickboxing

I have also competed nationally and internationally in Kickboxing and MMA and recently achieved bronze and silver in the World Championships in MMA.
