Beginning training at the age of 15 at a local Taekwondo club in Sale with his two brothers, Mr Collins quickly rose through the ranks. Having family members at the same club gave him friendly competition and encouragement to learn as much as he could, as quickly as he could. Weekly for five years, he trained three nights a week. He attained his original I (1st) Dan in 2002.
In 2010 after some time training in a wide variety of other martial arts, Mr Collins returned to his roots and began training with Rhee International Taekwondo as a white belt. He returned to his original 1st Dan grade in 2011. He became an assistant Instructor at their Sale Taekwondo club shortly thereafter.
Mr Collins joined the ITFA in July 2014, with Senior Master Andrew K H Rhee as his Instructor and Mentor. On 10th April 2016, Mr Collins was successfully promoted to II (2nd) Dan by ITFA Patron First Grand Master Rhee (The Father of British Taekwon-do) , at ITFA HQ in Alexandria, Sydney.
