He began training in the Bujinkan in 2003, under Robert Maynard, who consequently introduced him to Shihan David Heald, Sandy Marwick and Norman Smithers. In 2006 he attended a Seminar by Dr. Kacem Zoughari which changed his perspective on training.

He was awarded his Godan by Masaaki Hatsumi in 2013, and has been ranked consistently since then.
