Team Scotland coach

When it comes to teaching and instilling, not only the ability to protect themselves, but also instills in them respect with strong individual morals and ethics, sensei Mike Gibson works his magic again and again, since once you are under his wing, he considers you part of his extended family.

Everything he does is done with professionalism and integrity, he has always put his students first and by doing so has many championship winning students who are part of the England National team.

Add to this his standing in the WMO (World Martial Arts organisation) as a regional director and there is no doubt at all, that I would send my children to be taught by him since he has so much to offer and he leads by example.

In short he is a man to be respected by the way he leads his life, and by passing it on to his students.
