Sensei Gavin SESMA Norwich

Sensei Gavin 1st Dan Kickboxing


Brief background

I first orginally started training in kickboxing with another club in Norwich, but due to relocation, I had to stop training with the club.

During that time to current day, I moved to Thorpe Marriott, continued my martial arts training at SESMA & with the tuition of Master Wayne & Sensei Tom, I very proudly achieved my Black belt in April 2016.

During my path to black belt, I also began to help assist in some of the junior kickboxing classes with Sensei Tom & Master Wayne as I also enjoy encouraging others to develop their skills too.

What does Sensei Gavin enjoy most about martial arts ?

I thoroughly enjoy teaching the junior & adult kickboxing classes.

I find it very rewarding watching the juniors ( & adults) develop their skills & abilities, whilst growing in confidence & gaining discipline through martial arts. My son Joshua is also training in junior kickboxing & one day hope to see him achieve his Black belt.

Future aspirations ?

To continue to teach & assist at SESMA studios whilst helping the brand to be recognized & continually grow.

To learn martial arts in other areas, improving my knowledge & abilities further whilst helping others on their path too.



Learning new skills,


Quality time with family & friends,




“I cant”
