Coach trains with champion boxer

BRITISH Military Martial Arts Angus head coach Jason Aston had the opportunity of a lifetime when he trained alongside, and picked up tips from, two-time World Champion boxer Nigel Benn last week.

Benn was at the BMMA headquarters in Telford to lead a session, share his experiences and meet with press and partners as he formally accepted the role of ambassador, with Jason Aston among the lucky group to meet a true legend of the sport. On the experience, Jason said: “It was a fantastic day and one I’ll never forget. To have the chance to learn from one of the world’s best ever boxers, and to work with Nigel to promote BMMA around the UK, is brilliant.”
