Profile on Peter Belmar (Brief Synopsis)
Peter (Smiling Assassin) Belmar has been a practitioner of kickboxing, Muay Thai, boxing and fitness for over 34 years in London, United Kingdom.
He has now relocated to New York. Peter fought as an amateur boxer for 5 years and as a professional Thai Kickboxer for 15 years, competing throughout Europe, Thailand, and the United States.
He holds an outstanding fight record of 79 fights with only 7 defeats.
In 1993, wanting to give something back to his fans and share his passion with others, Peter turned his attention to coaching.
He started running a series of Muay Thai, kickboxing, boxing, and fitness programs at Kelmscott Leisure Centre in London. He began with students who were interested in participating in Muay Thai and kickboxing but were not certain if it was right for them—people who were a bit apprehensive, but genuinely keen to learn. He then introduced other elements into his program, such as a fitness program, and safety and self-defense courses. The program gained popularity and was soon operating out of multiple venues in London and Essex. What set apart his curriculum as unique was its specific aim to challenge students´ perceptions of themselves, boost energy levels, and improve self-confidence.
Peter´s background extends beyond the martial arts; he also worked as a professional sports coach for nearly a decade, teaching both adults and children from diverse communities. His experiences have equipped him with a wealth of knowledge and qualifications in the area of Recreation and Leisure Management.
He also has written four books - "Thai Kickboxing for Beginners" "Body By Belmars" "Old Man by the Lake" and "I Was Just Thinking" both available at major online bookshops.
Drawing from his fighting background, Peter brings a magnitude of knowledge, expertise, and qualifications to his classes.
