    This entire post is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read! None of you even know who trev is yet your posting stupid comments about him like he's an arch enemy..

    I know trev he's my current coach and has been for the past year, trevs a friendly bloke and when It comes to teaching martial arts he's one of the best there is!
    All this talk about him is crap and shouldn't be allowed..
    I was coached by trev leading into my first mma fight, won the fights and took out the trophy, could not have done it without him!!

    I hope anyone reading this can understand this thread is a LIE and was only ever created to make a very good martial artist look bad.

    Well, this thread is about 5 years old. It's possible that he's changed... or that the guy was misidentified. I don't know... That sort of thing is why this thread is in the section labeled Horror Stories. Wouldn't you agree that, if the story is correct, it's some pretty scary and wrong practices in teaching?

    If true, this person should not be teaching anything martial arts related. Jack-asses like him give all of us a bad name.

    I've just cottoned on to this thread also & cannot believe what I am reading. I have had the pleasure (that's right- pleasure) of training under Trev for both BJJ & a little boxing. I was a complete beginner & found him to be a very supportive, encouraging & safe teacher. He was fantastic at showing correct technique & ensuring I was safe whilst training. I have always felt extremely comfortable training under his coaching & would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who cared to learn correct technique safely!!!

    I have had the pleasure of training with Trevor for the last 2.5-3 years. After being coached in MMA by him for one year and training BJJ with him for the whole period I have learnt a lot from him, and not once have I been concerned about my safety or been placed in a concerning situation. Throughout the period that Trev was coaching me he tailored training specific to my skill level and requirements. I hope to continue to have the opportunity to train BJJ with Trev over the coming years.

    I'm curious to know if you guys came on here just to dispute this thread or were you joining anyway and having a look through thread when you found this one? the thing is it's a very old thread, I and many others didn't know it existed and didn't know the name of the instructor but by raising it from the grave you've actually done your instructor more harm than good I think.

    Hmm. 2-3 new posters who only have 1 post specifically about this guy? I wonder what would happen if we traced IP addresses....

    Is there a Kickboxing Association in Australia? They might take an interest and either get him straight or out of business.

    He used to teach me at school, I've been researching this guy as he was my sub PE teacher and he made me(a male) fight with another girl, i said to him i have more respect than that to hit a girl. He was showing us self defense skills and then in the Tony Frizza Stadium This chick hit me and he called me a loser and pushed me to the ground. I HATED HIM! this man pushed me to the ground and kicked me and my class laughed

    Your profile says you are a 17 year old female not a male. This thread was started in 2007 ( when you were 6) and the last post was 6 years ago when you were 11.
