Kenny Richmond is a Sports Massage Practitioner based at the Meadow Sports Centre in Dumbarton. He is also an Associate FRACT Tactical Coach and licensed member of The British Martial Arts and Boxing Association.
Kenny has been a Massage Practitioner for over ten years. Initially as a means to add an extra dimension to his Coaching approach and to assist with Soft Tissue Injuries whilst teaching as a Senior Muay Thai Instructor:
Due to an unforeseen change in personal circumstances, in 2014 Kenny made the decision to launch ITUS Physical Solutions, a new full time business offering a unique blend of Services which would encompass his vision for health and personal protection.
Kenny has a passion for Martial Arts, Health and fitness and treating people with physical issues. He has drawn on his previous experience as a Senior Thai Boxing Instructor and Sports Massage Practitioner and has gained additional qualifications in order to start a new business providing, in his view, the best in effective Reality Based Self Defence. Kenny feels there is a need for Specific Self Defence Courses where people could quickly learn a simple yet effective way to protect themselves. He believes FRACT is the best way to achieve this. Kenny has been involved in Martial Arts for over thirty six years and has trained in Karate, Boxing, Hapkido, Jeet Kune Do Concepts and extensively in Muay Thai (Thai Boxing).
He knows there is a real need for courses specifically designed to make people more aware and to best prepare them mentally and physically for an attack. He wanted to provide training that was realistic and would test the student under pressure in various scenario based situations. This led him to search out suitable training providers specialising in reality Based Self Defence. A decision was made to train with and become a Coach within, in his opinion, the best Reality Based Self Defence System in the UK. Kenny journeyed to Birmingham to train with Head Coach and creator of the FRACT Tactical Fight System, Guy Bloom. Guy is highly respected in the field of Reality Based Self Defence and is a regular columnist for some of the leading Martial Arts Publications.
