I'm Craig, I came to know Pete through Danny, who is both mine and my 2 boy's Judo coach and also a good friend. A couple of years ago, Danny introduced me to Pete, such a lovely, humble man and I heard of the great work he has been doing with young people, really trying to make a positive impact on their lives, both through his inspirational life story and experiences, and through his skills in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
As a long time student of martial arts, and my occupation as a Close Protection Operative, Pete asked if I would be interested in helping out on his Fighting Chance / Turnstyle program for young people in areas close to where I live. I jumped at the chance, and have really enjoyed being part of the team, getting to work alongside Pete, Danny and Bill, and of course the young people who have been attending the sessions.
