Geoff Thompson is a BAFTA winning writer, filmmaker, teacher, former bouncer and world ranking martial arts guru.
He has written over forty books on self-help, self-defence and martial arts, and has written many screenplays for short and feature films (you can find a list of his creations on Wikipedia).
He has appeared three times on the Sunday Times Bestsellers List, which included his first book, Watch My Back, detailing his decade of experiences as a doorman in Coventry. In 2008 it was adapted into a screenplay by Geoff and filmed as the major motion picture, Clubbed.
He began his martial arts training in the Eastern arts including karate, aikido and kung-fu. However, during his time as a nightclub doorman, he found that what he had learned was inadequate for the reality of violence and leaned into more practical techniques, eventually becoming the first known instructor to name and extensively teach "the fence," which later led him to teaching Chuck Norris, in Las Vegas, where Chuck would share stories with Geoff about Bruce Lee.
For us, Geoff is an expert in transformation. He has transformed from factory worker to martial artist, bouncer, writer, teacher and filmmaker, and is so graceful in sharing his wisdom.
