Hadrian got his start in professional wrestling in 2001, earning several prestigious accolades including the FWA All England and Heavyweight titles, and the IWA Tag Team titles, before moving to the U.S. under a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
In 2009, Hadrian found himself in Los Angeles where he took up Gracie Jiu Jitsu, utilising the martial tenets of the warrior’s way to compete successfully in both Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts competition.
However, it was his five years working as a doorman in LA’s nightclubs and bars, dealing with rowdy celebrities, fearsome gang members, and other colourful characters, that he began to develop the verbal communication techniques that would later become a foundational aspect of The Warrior’s Way–an integrated system of practical self protection strategies, tactical communication techniques, and physiology based focus & relaxation breathing practices that comprise a more holistic approach to dealing with the unpredictability of the world around us.
Hadrian is based in London, teaching around the UK and online. His students run the spectrum, from single mothers to professional MMA fighters.
