Danny started his martial arts journey at age Nineteen, starting with Tai Chi in Orange where he then pursued Ninjutsu and Boxing and trained simultaneously with three separate instructors.

After his Ninjutsu and Boxing instructors moved away, Danny was recommended to train at Pollets which was an established business with a stable facility, where Danny could do a variety of martial arts under the one roof.

After achieving his 1st Degree Black Belt, Danny was offered a position to instruct satellite schools in Springhill, Cudal and Cowra. He has since been instructing in the full time dojos for over six years where he currently rotates between Bathurst, Granville and Penrith.

Danny assisted Hanshi Ian Pollet at the 2008 ISKA World Cup to win the Self Defence Championship, the Self Defence Grand Championship and placed 1st in Kata. In 2009 he was part of the Pollets team that travelled to compete in the US Open. He has since placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd competing in Koshiki, Point Sparring, weapons, Kata and Jiu Jitsu at regional tournaments. At the 2011 World Cup Danny achieved 1st place in Kata and 2nd place in Koshiki.

Danny understands the full benefit of how martial arts can help overcome struggles in life and bring balance and health to the mind and body. He is passionate about helping others to achieve their goals just as Hanshi has helped him to achieve his.
