Andy Jemmott - Trainer
I started my martial arts training at the age of about 6. I started out with Kung fu. As I got older I moved on to harder style arts. I did kempo karate, then found my love of Teakowdo at the age of 12. I study the art with great interest until I joined the Army. In the Army I learned to box and took that up as my sport for many years, fighting while I was stationed at Fort Bragg. When I returned to Boston I was in need of a combat sport and picked up the art of Muay Thai. Holding a amateur heavyweight title an have now ventured into pro fighting.
