(Fierce Israeli Guerrilla Hand-to-hand Tactics) programme. He travels to the US regularly to train personally with system founder Mike Lee Kanarek.



Darren's martial arts career spans over 30 years. As well as being a certified F.I.G.H.T., Israeli Tactical Knife Fighting & Ground Survival instructor in the HaganaH system, he holds black belts in several traditional martial arts including Shotokan Karate & freestyle Kung Fu/Kick-Boxing. He began his basic training in the Yoseikan System, at the first & oldest club in the UK under the instruction of Vernon Bell (The accepted father of British Judo & Karate) & attained his first Black Belt in 1984 in traditional Shotokan Karate under Joe Anderson Snr, at the Toyakwai, Hackney. (the first ever Karate club in London's "East End"). He fought in the Toyakwai squad at both national & international level and as a freelance fighter in both semi & full contact Karate & Kickboxing.


In the late 80’s & early 90’s, he worked extensively in the professional security sectors as a nightclub door supervisor, & within the V.I.P. close protection industry in the UK and Europe. His close protection & firearms training was under the tutelage of world renowned CQC & personal combat specialist, Dennis Martin of CQB Services and John "Lofty" Wiseman, founder of 22 Special Air Service regiment's counter-terrorism unit. Darren was therefore, one of the UK's first professionally trained civilian close protection operators back in the late 80’s.


Darren has studied various combative arts over the years on an intelligence gathering level including Western Boxing, Escrima, Military hand-to-hand combat,Togakure Ryu Ninjutsu & Krav Maga, attending seminars with many well known Masters & household names in the martial arts world.

In September 2012 he became one of the first foundation coaches in Defiance Combat's Flinch Response & Combat Tactics (F.R.A.C.T.) under system founder Guy Bloom. 


Darren's students have included, civilians, security staff, police officers, serving military personnel, close protection operators in high risk deployments and more recently, members of the Royal Marines Reserve at their London HQ. He is a regular writer and contributor in the martial arts press.
