Kru Wayne has had a passion for martial arts since a very young age. As a child he trained in Tae Kwon Do and Kung Fu. In his late teens and early 20's he found his passion in Muay Thai, training at a couple of gyms in the city where he was able to start his amateur fight career. To date, he has showcased his skills in the ring over 25 times, and holds the title for WKA Western Canadian Middleweight Muay Thai Champion (received in 2012).


Wayne's love for Muay Thai inspired him to open his own school with his wife Charleen in the summer of 2012 so he could share his passion. He continues to learn and expand his knowledge by participating in different courses, seminars and clinics around the country.


He has his CPR and First Aid certification.
