OUR BEGINNING

Awesome starts somewhere...
Hi, my name is Liam Richards. I began my Martial Arts journey when I was 7 years old. I was being bullied at school and I was the quiet kid with no confidence and no self-belief. Martial Arts gave me courage and confidence, and I made new friends. It made me who I am today.

I loved Martial Arts and became a Black Belt when I was 11 years old. I was lucky enough to compete across the world gaining national, European and World titles in the sport.

I soon realised it wasn’t trophies that I wanted; I wanted to improve and get better, and to help others too. I wanted other kids to be confident enough to make friends, and to know that the bullies weren’t in charge, and so, in 2007, Excel was born.

It started in my parents’ garage with one student! And as Excel grew, so did I... in 2008 my friend Danny Ball and I reached the final of Britain’s Got Talent in the Martial Arts duo, Strike!  Check out our audition! As Strike, we made Martial Arts mainstream! And we had an impact on so many people’s lives.

I wanted my purpose in life to help as many people as possible, and so in 2012 I qualified as a Life Coach, gaining a greater understanding of how communication can be used to make a difference. I’m always learning, and always finding ways of sharing my knowledge. I want to leave a legacy!
