Simon Scales is currently a 5th Degree Black Belt and the instructor for Inspire Taekwon-Do which covers the Mansfield / Mansfield Woodhouse area.

Simon started ITF Taekwon-Do in 1984 at age of 15 however on leaving home his martial arts experience was very much broken up with work commitments. Simon tried various styles on and off over the years when he moved around the UK, including many years of WTF Taekwon-Do and to a lesser extent Kung-fu, Kickboxing and Escrima. Eventually Simon found Heart Of England Taekwon-Do in 2008 and for the first time felt settled with his training. Heart Of England developed Simon supporting him through his training and becoming the instructor he is today.

Inspire Taekwon-Do is very much a family orientated club with parents often training with their children and was named after the success of the London Olympics, in the hopes of carrying on to “inspire a generation”, which Simon has achieved time and time again over past 11 years! As a family friendly club, Simon wants to encourage all people to discover their true potential! Simon also trained with his own children, Katie (20) who is a 3rd Degree and Thomas (17) who is a 2nd Degree. The school has developed its own community over the past 11 years where students come to learn Taekwon-Do and socialise with each other. New students are always made to feel welcome.

For the past 10 years Simon and his team have also been a Voluntary Child Sports and Confidence Coach at The Samworth Church Academy exposing hundreds of young people to diversionary life skills such as Self-Discipline, Social Integration, Self Esteem, Non Violent Conflict Resolution, Spatial Awareness, Leadership and Goal Setting. The syllabus is supported through the foundations of Taekwon-Do. This process has proven to be a success with young people benefiting not only physically but socially and academically as well.

Simon is also passionate about the competitive side of Taekwon-Do which compliments his focus in personal development and fitness. Simon has had reasonable success with numerous Bronze, Silver and Gold medals at National / European / World Championships. Simon encourages his own students to compete to maximise their own full potential and development.

His dedication to fitness is second to none and has many achievements to his name including completing 19 x Tough Mudders with many more planned. In developing his knowledge in fitness and health Simon became a professionally Personal Training Instructor specialising in function strength and fitness with a focus on mobility, pliability and natural movement.

Simon has created his own fitness brand FightFit and FightFit PT using martial arts as a foundation to improve people’s lives positively through being active.

Simon also hold a Class B UITF Referee and officiates at local and national tournaments. Simon’s future commitment is to keep developing his own and others Taekwon-Do journey.”
