Instructor: Ruth Nelson
Ruth enrolled with Phoenix Martial Arts in 2002, training in kickboxing. In 2005 her kung-fu training commenced and she is now one of the top female competitors in the association.
Her love and dedication to the sport led her to making an appearance on the national and international competition circuit since 2006 & then later qualifying to represent Team GB. She continues to compete today having achieved an invaluable level of experience & major titles including WAKO World Champion (x2), WAKO European Champion, WAKO British Champion & Irish Open Champion, to name a few.
The dedication and fighting spirit is in the Nelson blood through a number of generations, as not only does Ruth¹s son train with Phoenix, represent Great Britain and actively participate on the fighting circuit, but her late father also actively participated in martial arts training. Ruth is also the first cousin to Azumah Nelson who was a successful professional boxer representing their family origin of Ghana during the 1980’s and 90’s.
Ruth teaches children & adults from our full time centre in Croydon every Thursday as well as from Beckenham every Tuesday night.
Ruth is also the association Child Protection Officer.
