Danny started training at the age of 3 years old with his father who was already at the time running his own Academy. The Academy is still going strong and is where they both teach alongside each other to this day.
At the age of 14 Danny was awarded a Black Belt in Environmental Combat System by Geoff Thompson and Peter Constantine under The British Combat Association in Coventry, with the supervision of his Father Danny Senior.
Danny was promoted by Royce Gracie for all of his Jiu Jitsu belts, from Blue Belt in 2005 through to Black Belt in December 2013 at the Valente Brothers Academy in Miami USA. Danny travelled here to take a vigorous test in front of a panel of Royce Gracie Black Belts, Royce Gracie himself and the Valente family.
Danny has competed in many different combat arts and won titles around the World including BJJ, but in his own words says “competing is just for fun, the real world has no time limits, referees or judges and is much more unpredictable. Self defence is what I train for to protect myself, my family and friends”.
Danny coaches BJJ competitors and elite MMA fighters at MMAA alongside the Royce Gracie Jiu Jitsu Self Defence Program.
