The Instructor

Hi! I'm Kris Ayrton of Sunderland and Newcastle.


I have been practicing martial arts for nearly 15 years now. My martial art of choice is Judo and I hold a 1st Dan black belt and also a level 2 coaches certificate. I have coached Judo for over 5 years with many of my student being successful in competition.


I have also dabbled in other styles such as Aikido, Jeet Kun Do, Bartitsui, Kickboxing and Boxing and also tried my hand at MMA.


Outside of martial arts, I work in security and personal fitness and wellbeing therapies. I am incredibly excited to be bringing Glima to Sunderland and Newcastle. Venues to be confirmed in the coming months.
