Danny Torres Senior Personal Training Instructor
Danny has been within the SnC & martial arts world for over 20years. His first strength coach was Frank Azzopardi – ( A great influence on the young Danny, who still credits his first mentor for many of his foundations in the industry). Dan studied strength training under coach Azzopardi, while simitaneously pursuing the martial arts with equal passion.
Dan’s first introduction to the martial arts was in the Japenese art of Karate, and later to Muay Thai – Actively searching and researching, Dan sought out better training methods and more way to satisfy his thirst for knowledge.
In 1999 this search led Danny to The China Town Martial arts academy, where he studied diligently under the tuition of Jeet Kune Do instructor, Bodybuilder & former competitive powerlifter – Steve Powell. During this time danny attained a senior rank within the martial arts and continued his body building and conditioning training – engaging in regular conditioning sessions in the hills running, scrambling and putting his limits to the test. Almost every spare moment was spent in a pursuit of bettering performance.
In addition Danny was also fortunate to be exposed to many other high ranking instructors, Rick Faye ( head of MSG), Rick Young ( UK’s most senior JKD and FMA practitioner) and of course The Great Master Dan Inosanto – friend, senior student and FMA teacheer to the late great Bruce Lee.
In early 2004 Dan achieved a life long dream to fly out to L.A and live and train among some of the worlds best instructors, eg- Paul Vunak, Tomas Cruz and strength guru Greg Vickers.
After years of study, Danny was invited to join his friend and current instructor John Robins ( IFC cheif Instructor, PFS certified instructor, & Gracie Barra BJJ Instructor) at the IFC HQ in stockport. Since that point Dan has continued his research into strength and conditioning and the martial arts and still seek out modern and innovative ways to help better his understanding and allow him to be and stay one of the best SnC coaches. Dan has also trained with World Champoin Braulio Estima & his SnC coach Jamie Harper.
Dan is currently the strength and conditioning coach for IFC ( one of the most successful martial arts gyms in the area).
