Dave began training martial arts when he was six. He moved between many martial arts for 2 decades or so before finding his home in Shark Muay Thai. After 18 months training he moved to Thailand to live and fight professionally. He trained all over Thailand for 3 years and fought in many of the stadiums there.

Now he teaches fighters in the golden era style of Muay Thai, showing respect to his lineage and masters as he keeps the traditions of their style alive.
