Master R. Dennis

Master R. Dennis VIII

Russell Dennis has been training in Martial Arts for the majority of his life. He started Taekwon-do in 1986, which he continues to train in and develop his knowledge. He presently holds an 8th Dan black belt (Master level) and is still very active in the Taekwon-do community working as an International Instructor, umpire and grading examiner with the International Taekwon-do Federation (ITF). Master Dennis runs the instructors courses for ‘Taekwon-do Impact’ (London and the South East), has been a member of the ITF-England Discipline and Ethics committee and the ITF-England technical director. He is an Instructing Master for ITF-England and is still the technical director for the Taekwon-do Impact group and Senior instructor for the ‘Extreme Taekwon-do’ group.

From the beginning Russell Dennis was always particularly interested in the self defence and realistic fighting side of Martial arts. He is also involved in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and runs ‘Extreme Fighters’ MMA gym in Redhill. Master Dennis has had several pro MMA fights (record of 4,1) and has several students who also compete in MMA.

Master Dennis runs Taekwon-do schools in the Cheam, Dorking and Epsom areas and teaches students from 4years old to over 60.

So the sad day has come when all the venues I use have closed due to the coronavirus Covid-19 problem until further notice. (hopefully not too much longer)

It is such a shame, as I have so many enthusiastic students who are almost as Taekwon-do crazy as I am.

As well as my obsession, Taekwon-do is my main job, so I am going to be very lost over the next month or so.

I will put up some posts/videos on our ‘Extreme Taekwon-do’ Facebook page to keep everyone ticking over. Please feel free to send messages/videos via Facebook.

You could send pattern videos for me to give some comments on or impress me with some videos of how many side kicks or turning kicks you can do in 1 minute in the living room (carefully !) or jumping kicks in the garden. I can of course answer questions and recommend or make videos.

Keep in contact and hope for a return to normality soon.

Unfortunately, we are not sure what will happen with the annual Summer camp this year yet. We will keep you posted.

Keep an eye on this site for the latest updates..
