AUSTIN GILMAN

Austin is an intelligent and dynamic instructor known for his passionate belief in educational excellence and his sense of humour.

Austin has 20 years of experience training in multi-disciplinary eastern and western martial arts and over 12 years specialisation in Krav Maga.

A lifelong interest in high intensity sport, twinned with an analytical mind and a passion for philosophical reading led Austin to the intellectual and physical discipline of Eastern Martial Arts. This devotion evolved into a commitment to the understanding, practice and teaching of the legally compliant and physically accurate elements of Krav Maga.

Austin began teaching Sanda, having achieved black belts in Wu Shu and San Shu, the martial arts taught to the Chinese military.

Austin currently teaches in Sheffield, continuing to train to elevate his own practice and help others to achieve their goals.

Away from Krav Maga he has enjoyed racing cars and motorcycles, extreme skiing and full contact kickboxing. He is currently enjoying a return to rugby.
