All Round Good Guy
Shannon is the driving force behind the creation and development of Titan Training ground. He's involved in many aspects of the gym. From website development to equipment selection to class and program design.
Shannon started his martial arts and fitness journey around the age of 5 years old. By taking an interest in Seido Karate and Rugby League. He later ventured towards Saturday morning TV before realizing that a sedentary life wasn't for him. He needed to be active!
So it was back to Seido Karate, BMX riding, and generally being active with mates by exploring the world around him. He later became interested in Kung Fu through coming across Bruce Lee in books and movies. But with no Kung Fu school available for him. He then concentrated his attention on motorbikes. But it wasn't long before he came across Jean-Claude Van Damme and the original 'Kick Boxer' movie.
Now while this movie doesn't contain much actual Muay Thai. It did ignite a passion in the sport and martial art. Which provides so much to the practitioner. Shannon found a local Martial Arts school which taught their version of Muay Thai. This school the Academy of Combat helped to create the basis for a life long journey in the understanding, research, and in the practice of Muay Thai, Kick Boxing, Martial Arts and Combat Sports.
Shannon has recently been traveling to Thailand for Muay Thai - Kick Boxing training on a yearly basis and has also completed a 200hr Yoga training intensive course. Through New York based Yoga Teacher Trainer and Instructor Ella Luckett. To further expand his knowledge of movement, breathing and flexibility.
Expert Cuteness Coach
Super friendly but knows when to flick on security mode.
Milan is head of TTG's security detail while also being an expert Cuteness Coach. Talk about being multi talented! She strongly believes in being approachable and using body language and words to defuse any confrontation. But can do what's needed if required to protect herself and those that she cares for. If you can understand dog speak then you'll often hear her say, 'Martial arts, Dog-jitsu, and Muay Thai are about self development and self defense first and foremost. Not fisty cuffs'.
