Chris Cruze

 

Chris has been involved in Martial Arts since he was 6 years old. Starting with Judo at the famous Brian Jacks Academy, moving on to Karate, and then Kickboxing at various schools
throughout South London, gaining 2 years of competitive experience. Chris then competed in gymnastics which focused his particular interest in Strength & Conditioning, soon realising
it’s importance for combat athletes.

Working alongside some of the top coaches & athletes in the country in disciplines such as Muay Thai, Olympic Lifting, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Athletics, Chris realised he wanted to
not only work with competitive athletes but to also help those who were not confident, fit or athletic when it came to exercise, fitness and Martial Arts.
“Exercise really is for everyone, young, old, the weak, the strong. It just comes down to being confident enough to perform the correct technique without risk of injury and
to understand that achieving your goals and improving your health won’t happen over night. It won’t be easy but it will be worth it”.

In 2008 Chris joined London Sitnarong and trained Muay Thai under Kru Cliff Bura, he also trained BJJ there for the first time with Alan Finfou and was immediately hooked.
Years later Cliff set up the well known Diesel Gym in Limehouse where Chris trained MMA and NO GI with world champion Leo Negao. Whilst continuing with Muay Thai Chris studied various
S&C courses, sports performance diplomas and affiliated with British Weight Lifting, UKSCA MOD and then moved on to training the fighters at Diesel gym.

Working with combat athletes Chris felt it was important to get in the ring/cage himself even tho he had no aspirations to become a career fighter. “I’ll leave that to the tough guys!
But rather than just telling the fighters how they needed to train to win fights and improve physically, I believed it was important to know what it felt like to perform under
the same conditions as the athletes I was coaching”.

Chris has years of experience competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and NoGI grappling competitions, winning numerous gold, silver and bronze medals along the way, including
winning gold at the British Open in 2012, IBJJF London International, Brighton Open, Bournemouth Open, Surrey Open and Seni International at the Excel Arena to name a few. He
also has semi-pro MMA and amateur kick boxing experience.

He is a Purple belt in BJJ under Steve O’Keeffe who he has known for over 10 years, since 2010 they have worked together at Fight for Peace Academy in East London,
coaching BJJ and MMA and providing boxing and fitness to secondary school children throughout schools in the London Borough of Newham. Chris has been the Head Strength & Conditioning
Coach at FFP for over 4 years, training amateur and pro athletes during their fight camps.
They have also helped to coach two of their students at FFP from complete beginners to being ranked number 1 in their respective divisions in the UK Amatuer MMA rankings.

‘RMA is a great place to train, with a friendly vibe and top class coaches. I’ve been training one to one with Chris for just under a year. His training is top notch, a real nice guy,
with brilliant training methods to help you get fit, learn martial arts and feel more confident in yourself. I would 100% recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health
and fitness’ Reece

‘I have been working with Chris for over a year now, he has educated me on different styles of training using kettlebells, body weight and a variety of compound workouts, which have
improved both strength and more importantly general mobility. I can say all work outs have been a challenge but most of all fun!’ Arun

improving my skill set. Highly recommended’ Isaac (athlete)

‘Since training with Chris i have improved my fitness, toned up and most importantly had fun whilst learning a new skill. I feel confident in my abilities thanks to his thorough
coaching of techniques. Keeping fit used to be a chore but now its part of my lifestyle!’ Anon
