    Master Mark Hutton talks to The Dark Master

    Master Mark Hutton talks to The Dark Master

    Master Mark Hutton is one of those people I love to chat with. He doesn't mince words and shoots straight from the hip; he is just the kind of person I like. Master Hutton is known throughout TKD circles as an inspirational character who practices what he preaches, which is another thing I like about him. I was pleased to catch up with him and chat about all things TKD and why returning to some of the old ways will be necessary. Chatting to him it is clear that he loves to help people and that is the sign of a true martial artist. if you ever get to speak with him, I guarantee you will not be disappointed. However, beware as he tells it like it is.
    I hope you enjoy our chat.

    Rebecca Hanser talks to The Dark Master

    Rebecca Hanser talks to The Dark Master

    Rebecca Hanser is a director, writer, producer, and actress based in London for screen, stage, and mocap. She is known for the feature films Portal to the Abyss (2024), Parasitus (2021), Blade of the Assassin (2021) and the short films Third Life Crisis (2023), the award-winning Ghosted (2022) and A Tribute to Frida (2021).
    At an early age, she already loved films and says she learned English by "simply watching a lot of movies". The acting bug only kicked in at a much later age as she developed a passion for writing. She pursued an impressive academic career before giving in to acting. She studied International Business Management at The Hague University (BSc) and Anthropology and Journalism (MA) at the renowned Leiden University. Surviving college through jobs in modelling and hospitality, she says that studying allowed her to travel the world. As a result, she speaks several languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, German, and French, as well as her native Dutch and English.
    She started growing more interested in acting, and after several successful Dutch film projects like Poolshoogte (2014), she moved to London to train at the prestigious Drama Centre London to obtain her third master's degree in screen acting (MA). The classes mixed actor students with director students, giving her a taste of work behind the camera. She joined theatre company The People's Company as an in-house cast member during this period. She was featured in one of their biggest productions, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream (2019), as fairy queen Titania in collaboration with the Southwark Playhouse. She performed on stage and toured the UK with the Extreme Improv Comedy Club, directed by David Pustansky. Around this time, she also became passionate about Flamenco dance, which led to the short documentary Andalusia (2018). The latest stage performance was for the show "Pigs" produced by SweinHaus and took place at the Cockpit Theatre in London.

    Duncan Perry talks to The Dark Master

    Duncan Perry talks to The Dark Master

    Duncan Perry commenced his martial arts journeys in the 1970s. He’s very modest and a nice guy. Although I don't know him well, I suspect he's an excellent, caring teacher.
    Like many of us who started back then, he gained inspiration from watching the kung fu series on TV.
    He started Lau Gar Kung Fu with Sifu Frank Linch as a youngster in the brutal days of martial arts. His Karate journey began in Castleford, and he's been part of the Mushin Kai legacy built by Alfie Lewis. Mr Perry has participated in several martial arts disciplines but is still excited about what the arts can do for others. We chatted about his love for Disney and psychology. That seems like a strange combination, but it works for him.
    He was warm, and I felt like I’d known him for years.
    I hope you enjoy our chat.

    Mike Ilderton is a lovely gentleman who has practised several Japanese arts. He is the oldest martial artist with whom I have spoken.  He has a genuine love for the traditional side of his art, which reflects the time he has spent in practice and the era in which he started his journey.  
    Mike Sensei is an inspiration to all of us who love and practice martial arts. It’s great to speak with someone who has made it his way of life for so long.

    Lee Kwende Talks to the Dark Master

    Lee Kwende Talks to the Dark Master

    It's great doing this podcast because I get to chat with many different kinds of people from all combat backgrounds. My guest on this one was a nice guy who was introduced to me through a mutual friend. I have to say, I enjoyed our conversation. Lee has had experience with several different martial arts. At one point in his journey, he turned to swimming and weight training to get his physical fix. Lee also has a real passion for nunchaku and has developed his system of combat nunchaku. Check out the link below to see more about his system.
    If you want to get into nunchaku, you can't go far wrong with chatting with Lee; he's a nice and approachable guy.
    I hope you enjoy our chat:

    Team Tizick from TST UK talks to The Dark Master

    Team Tizick from TST UK talks to The Dark Master

    I came across Team Tizick many years ago through a mutual friend. I found them very eager and keen to learn, and they also seemed passionate about passing Taekwon-Do on to others. They currently run and manage their dojang with classes that appeal to all ages. They are incredibly active in all areas of martial arts and, judging by their Facebook posts, are very busy supporting their students on the tournament circuit.
    It was good to catch up with them and discuss their journey.
    You can find out more about Team Tizick and their range of classes at https://www.tstmartialarts.com/
    I hope you enjoy our chat.
