Tony Anderton

Sensei Tony Anderton BSc.(Hons) 3rd Dan

Tony began practicing martial arts at the age 6 when he started to train in traditional karate. Through his hard work he soon found himself entering competitions quite successfully and competed for the first time at the age of 9. Tony continued training hard and at the age of 13 he passed his 1st Dan Black Belt. From this point Tony began to develop his skills in instructing other individuals, where it was not uncommon to find him teaching martial artists twice, even three times his age. Tony then used his karate as part of his GCSE PE practical exam where he scored the highest mark in the country, and then in his A Level PE practical exam where again he placed himself at the top of the marks awarded. After finishing his Y13 exams Tony secured himself an unconditional offer into Sheffield Hallam University to study Sports Science with Coaching.

Whilst at university, Tony was placed on the elite performance module, where he received support to help with his studies whilst he was traveling and competing, and he also captained the Sheffield Hallam Karate Squad at the British University Championships. He then went on to compete throughout Europe, representing both Great Britain, and the Gakushuin British Forces team on many occasions. Tony graduated in November 2009 with a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Sports Science with Coaching.

Following his graduation from university, Tony was looking for a career to pursue in sport and fitness when he came across Lee Matthews, who explained to him what exactly his vision for his business was, and how he wanted to grow. Lee also explained that in order to do this, he needed to recruit more instructors. After a very rigorous training schedule and on the job evaluation, Tony was appointed the job of an instructor for Lee Matthews Black Belt Academy, where he now runs the academy’s at Tamworth, Rugeley, Wombourne, Nuneaton and Coleshill. After 9 months working with LMBBA Tony decided that he would leave his day job and become a full time martial artist.

Tony is still competing in both traditional karate and kickboxing and mid 2011 made it onto the WMKF England team as one of the elite sponsored competitors. Following this he was then asked to coach within the squad, taking the role of karate points coach. In th 2011 WMKF World Championships, held in Sicily, Tony fought in the -75kg and the Grand Champion Open Weight Karate points divisions. Tony put on an expert display winning both categorys and claiming 2 world titles, alongside making the final in the Grandchampion Kata division finishing 3rd.

Tony has been instructing for 10 years and has vast experience in coaching all ages. He also incorporates his extensive knowledge in sports science within his lessons, maximizing student’s opportunities to improve, whilst ensuring that you are enjoying yourself in the process.
