WELCOME TO THE SCHOOL OF CRAZY MONKEY

WHERE THE MAT MEETS THE

Hey 'Coach' rodney king here...
And welcome to my School of Crazy Monkey.

I have been practicing martial arts since I was six years old. For the past three decades I have been coaching people just like you—on how to develop real world fighting skills.

I grew up poor, raised on the South Side of Johannesburg in government housing by a single parent. I was bullied severely as a child. My childhood was fraught with violence, both at the hands of my abusive alcoholic Mother, and the gangs in my neighbourhood. I had to have safe routes walking home from school just to get back to my house unscathed. School wasn’t safe either, finding myself daily the target of the schoolyard bullies.

I turned to martial arts to learn how to fight back. And that’s exactly what I did.  As such, my martial arts programs arose from surviving real world interpersonal violence.

After being kicked out of the house and never finishing school at 17 I entered the military. After my service, and not being able to find a job, I took the only offer on the table: as a bouncer outside some of Johannesburg’s roughest nightclubs. for the next several years I would become intimately acquainted with the realities of interpersonal violence. I credit this time as the proving ground for my Crazy Monkey Defense striking program.

HOWEVER...I believe that learning martial arts should be more than just about KNOWING how to fight

While I firmly believe that it is imperative that having self-preservation skills should be a primary goal of training martial arts, years of surviving interpersonal violence has taught me that what is far more important is how your martial arts training informs your life.

You see…while you may never be called upon to use your martial skills to survive interpersonal violence, you will be called upon to navigate the martial arts of everyday life. While I readily acknowledge that knowing how to protect myself has been an important asset in my life, what has been far more powerful is how my martial arts practice has enabled me to show up in life calm, focused and fearless.

My goal is to show you how to embrace your inner warrior, while being an artist in flow!
