THE OWNER of ‘the BEST defence’ martial arts centre in Arbroath, Master Mark Davies, is the founder of Tactical Edge, a martial arts system that is spreading quickly across the UK and Europe.

Master Davies was recently invited to perform a seminar in Tampere in Finland. The seminar attracted martial arts instructors from as far afield as Russia.

The event introduced them to the close quarters self defence skills of Tactical Edge, which was originally developed by Mark Davies for use by an element of UK Special Forces.

The course was such a success that Mark was asked to perform a course in St Petersburg in Russia and to also spend a few days training OMON, a Russian Special Forces unit.

Mark said: “I’m delighted with the way my system was received and to be booked on the spot to teach Russian Special Forces and the largest TaeKwon-Do organisation in Northern Russia is a huge honour.

“I’m also delighted that Black Eagle TaeKwon-Do in Finland are sending instructors over to do our Tactical Edge instructors course and spread my system in Finland”.

Master Davies runs ‘the BEST defence’ martial arts centre at 6 Guthrie Port in Arbroath. He has spaces available for children and adults in a wide variety of martial arts classes. He can be contacted on 07740982508 or via his website www.blackbeltacademies.com
