Mr Dave Wiltshire

Chief Instructor - Black Belt (3rd Dan)

Dave is the founder and senior instructor of Castle Martial Arts and has over 20 years worth of experience in Martial Arts. He started his training at a very early age as a teenager.

He originally got into Kick Boxing as he wanted to do something a bit different from Boxing and Karate in the early 1990's, so he opted for the fast paced sport of Kick Boxing.

While Kick Boxing remains his primary main art of choice, he has also studied Krav Maga, Ju-Jitsu, Sambo Wrestling, Wing Chun, Self Defence and Self Protection, as well as Mixed Martial Arts and others.

Dave is a proficient striker with an all round ground game. He is very knowledgeable and patient with all his students and recognises early potential and always aids his students to get the most out of their ability.

Paul has great mobility and speed and is particularly skilled at striking with his hands and also has good all round kicking ability coupled with an impressive high level of physical fitness.
