Brett Mackenzie

He has over 30 years of martial arts experience which includes Korean Karate, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Krav Maga, Jui Jutsi and KAPAP

Brett Mackenzie previously served in the British Army as an infantry soldier with the 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment (Vikings). During his service he was posted to Gibralter, Colchester and completed several operational tours of Northern Ireland. After leaving the army, he has served in many different security roles from door supervisor (Great Yarmouth) to Norwich City Football Club working as an away fans steward.

After studying many disciplines Brett Mackenzie chose KAPAP because it’™s intelligent, up-to-date with the real world and its threats. It is not bogged down by traditions, allowing him to express his teaching style and beliefs without being restricted by a syllabus.

Brett loves teaching people valuable life skills and has taught martial arts for many years in Norfolk. He spent several years working as a Karate instructor in Great Yarmouth. In 2012 he decided to teach KAPAP and hasn’t looked back since.

Brett Mackenzie likes to travel, and visits Sweden and Serbia regularly

He helps mentor the KAPAP group in Sweden with his friend Julian Jacob. He also travelled all the way to America train with the Avi Nardia. Meeting some great people and after 8 days of intensive training he was awarded a KAPAP level 2 instructor cert.

He is a qualified firearms instructor with GROM Serbia

This is a new qualification under the Avi Nardia Academy. Brett believes that if you teach firearms disarms, you really need to know the subject. Training with rubber training pistols, doesn’t cut it – and you must KNOW YOUR SUBJECT. Nothing worse than teaching students to disarm weapons and have no handling skills. This is ultra dangerous and he regular teaches handling skills to all his students.

‘Sometimes a teacher, always a student’

One of the mottoes favoured by Sensei Avi Nardia, the founder of modern KAPAP. Brett is very open mind when it comes to learning and ensures that he is regularly kept up-to-date. Attending instructor updates and cross training with other top class teachers.

Brett is one of the few authorized instructors to teach KAPAP within the UK. Visit KAPAP UK authorised schools page.

Testimonial

The past four months marked my first attempt at contact sports and I have to say Brett’s classes are superb. The thing that really sinks into me is the spiritual aspect of martial arts – perseverance, motivation and determination – things that can be brought to everyday application. Devotion to two or three sessions per week in KAPAP is not only good value for money, but also highly beneficial to the self. My only regret is not being able to stay for longer.
