Former world kick boxer's youth courses


Natalie Jones

A FORMER world kick boxing champion is keeping himself busy holding courses for youngsters.

Russ Williams, who runs a gym in Caerwys and Wrexham, has been offering advice and speaking about his life to a range of groups including: Cilcain young farmers and the Adran Yr Urdd group, from Llanefydd.

Welsh speaker Russ, a former farmer, said he is enjoying holding the courses.
The course begins with video footage of Russ’ fights and KO's which enabled him to become European Thai Boxing and World kick boxing Champion.

He then carried out a question and answer session, which he says usually involves talking about his life as a dairy farmer.

As well as training for the sport, the setting up of his gyms and successful fight night promotions.

Both groups enjoyed the course having fun training and learning some effective self defence techniques.

Anyone interested in these courses can contact Russ through his website - or phone: 0781 4516102.
