Simon Morrell is one of the United Kingdom’s leading Martial Artists and Inspirational Speakers but it hasn’t always been this way and his success has been hard come by.
As a young child he was badly bullied which grew into violent assaults as he approached early adulthood. An attempted stabbing took place by a vicious youth during a particularly frightening period and further beatings followed. Simon became agoraphobic and suffered from life changing panic attacks before deciding he had endured enough.
He entered the world of Martial Arts to gain confidence and quickly surprised himself and his loved ones by excelling in it. Today he holds multiple Black Belts including 6th Dan Karate and Dan Grade Krav Maga as well as being a three time Hall of Fame winner. He has also twice been an award winner at the industry related Warriors Assemble including 2016 British Book of the Year.
He uses his adversity as fuel for his books in the hope they will inspire others. His battle against alcohol abuse bought on by conflicts with hardcore gangsters and members of the IRA who pursued him for his father's debts is the subject of the book An Everyday Warrior. Again despite grave danger and life changing choices, he emerged triumphant and he hopes this book will show there is a way forward for anyone, whatever their circumstances.
His childhood beatings and bullying inspired him the write 'Kia! The Karate Handbook for Kicking Kids!' the complete self defense book for children and his next book 'My Fear, Your Fear' is part self help and part discovery book for people struggling with their own fears.
