Although each week the program was harder, I never missed a session, as well strickly watched my diet from Tom’s advice: to reduce the portion of the meal, but allow yourself enjoy every 2 to 3 hours, but each meal needs to be balanced by Carbohydrate, protein and fat, BUT no ‘white’ carbohydrates or simple sugars after 6pm. I even report my exact diet every day, however some meal was ‘A wrong thing to do’, as I thought honesty help me to progress. Yes, I did all this during my 5 weeks training.
solid training and understanding of self-defense
- and using different martial arts techniques for the purpose of self-defense
vast improvements in my physique
- both as concerns actual strength and as concerns overall flexibility, balance and general well being
- 3) broad introduction to the wider spectrum of martial art schools and associated methods/concepts.
- A person with strong inter-personal skills and a particularly empathetic person
- A person capable of motivating in personal training that allows very high gain from very short periods of training
- A person with broad and deep insight not only in the martial arts but also how that relates to actual physical ability/strength and mentally
- A person with an ingrained and high level of martial arts ability through a mix of different schools
When I started training with Tom I had no insight or ability in self-defense or martial arts. I had a hope to use martial arts both for practical (self-defense) purposes but also very much from a perspective of using martial arts to achieve long term strong physique and well being.

For me training 2-4 times per week means feeling better morally and physically. I moved to other cities before, the whole process and the adaptation for me meant always that I wasn’t able to take care about nutrition and sport with the consequence that at the end I realized quite late that I had to give both a priority. For this reason I contacted Tom the first week I arrived in Shanghai. My objectives were to recuperate the shape and good habits as well as to learn how to train here. I liked a lot when he told me that his objective was not that I have fun but I reach my goals. Finally he managed to do both.
He run a training that was really adapted for me. He interested in what could suit me best and made different routines, some of the exercises were quite challenging at the beginning but affordable now. The result is that I feel stronger and healthier, I learnt more about nutrition and I feel more independent to train alone getting faster results.
Besides his training skills I like from Tom that he always was and is still open for questions and discussions about training and nutrition and the fact that he always answers honestly and clearly which made everything uncomplicated. He motivates you “through you”. I found him a big professional.

even longer… Let’s just say that fitness and training were not
high on my list of priorities. Before meeting Tom for the first time,
I was still a little perplexed as to whether I would commit or not to this
lifestyle change but as soon as the first session was over, I knew
that I was in for the long run.
into a pleasure and a time of my day I look forward to. Also, Tom’s
professionalism and experience brought me the results that made me
want to go forward and to continue…
I have been having trouble ridding myself of the weight I gained from my pregnancy. I tried dieting, exercising and nothing really worked until I started training with Tom. My training program included a combination of gym exercises, kickboxing and dieting which was both fun and challenging. In the last 5 weeks, we went into an intensive program which included a more rigid diet and training 6 times each week. Now my body shape has almost recovered and my weight is back to within 2 kg of what is was before my pregnancy, and my overall health has never been better. Last but not least, the training sessions were never more than 1 hour so they were never intrusive to my normal daily routine which will allow me to integrate them into my new lifestyle.
