Jon has studied various martial arts thoughout school and university which continued during his time in China. He became friends with Simon White in 2005 and started to train together - stating that he had found "his" martial art.
In March 2013 Jon was awarded his first degree Black Belt with Matt Grace - and is now joined the Academy as an instructor both within and outside the Academy.
Despite a number of injuries throughout the years, Jon continues to learn and teach, and is an asset to the Academy.
