Bio Info:

Sifu P.Mogridge started training in martial arts at the tender age of 5 years old after being given an old raff kit bag by his dad. The bag was filled with mud and dirt and hung from a tree in the garden. Pete would spend many hours practising moves he had seen in Bruce Lee films. Pete would perform kicks, elbow strikes and punches which all took their toll. Pete would even bleed from his wounds as he conditioned his body. Read more
