Who am I and Why should you train with us?
A pioneer of UK MMA…
My name is Phil Norman. I am a life-long martial artist, full instructor under Guro Dan Inosanto and considered a pioneer of MMA in the UK.
I’ve been very fortunate to train with many of the best martial artists in the world, including instructors like Dan Inosanto, Erik Paulson, Rick Faye, Yori Nakamura, Trevor Ambrose and many others.
It was after winning World and British titles in different combat sports that an embarrassing KO made me rethink my approach to combat.
Drawing from my experiences training with Trevor Ambrose and Kali gave me the inspiration for what became Ghost Elusive Combat.
In case you don’t know who Trevor is, he is a multiple kickboxing and boxing champion with hundreds of fights to his name, and he was one of my main training partners during my fighting days.
