As students of martial arts Colin and Sally enjoyed and still do travel around the UK and Europe to train with multiple instructors. They believe that for Lions to progress even further the students needed influence and instruction for many a different angle and perspective. Since this decision Lions has been luck to having some of the best instructors the UK can offer and they are all under one roof.

Sally Lewis

Sally Lewis

Sally has been teaching for over a decade. Enjoying the variation of teaching children to adult to the ladies only classes.

After training as an assistant instructor and reaching her black belts she was chosen by the Master of Qi Kwan DO to become a Chief Instructor.  She took the opportunity to propel her life into a different direction with both hands, Her knowledge of the style along with a determination to be the best instructor-led her to have one of the largest schools in the art.  During this time she was consistently improving her knowledge through seminars, courses, and training in other disciplines.  This led her to fall in love with Muay Thai, K1 and Boxing.


Colin Lewis was the founder of Lions Thai Boxing later to become Lions Watford.   His martial arts career begins in his early teens with various styles practiced which have helped him as a building block when he began to re-train and ultimately become an instructor. He enjoys the fighting side of K1 and Muay Thai,  he is in charge of the fighters from lions and often heads the squad around the country and abroad.  Driving Lions and the fighter in a forward motion to achieve titles and rankings.
