About Me

My name is Daniel Fletcher. I’m a graduate of the Marketing department at Lancaster University (2012) and currently working in Marketing in the North West of England.

I have studied martial arts since I was around 17, beginning with a Jujitsu club being taken by a friend. I have since gone on to accrue experience in Taekwondo (achieving a 2nd Dan black belt) as well as training for 3 years in MMA while at university.

I began Muay thai training in the Spring of 2014 and since then have gone on to compete twice and have begun helping my coach (Rachel Joyner) along with her coaching team (Jamie Burgess, Matt Ball & Alice Smith) by becoming a trainee instructor.

This blog looks to chart my continued journey, training hard, finding the correct motivation and doing the best I can in a sport I love.
