A Dream Comes True For Nathan 21-year-old Thai Boxer, Nathan Epps, has landed his dream job, as a Trainer at the pretigous K-Star Thai Boxing Academy, in Birmingham. The former pupil of Bishop Walsh School, in Sutton Coldfield, was actually trained at the Perry Barr gym and now he will be passing on his experience and wealth of knowledge he gained to a new set of students, both there and at the Academy, in the City Centre.

Nathan, from Sutton Coldfield, has been training at K-Star for 4-years. Originally just to get fit and build self-confidence, now, he’s the current Middleweight, Midland Area Champion and has also gained his Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer qualifications, with which, he can’t wait to pass on his considerable experience and know-how. He says: “I’m really excited about this opportunity. It’s a dream come true for me. I hope I’ll be able to pass on

all I know to children and young people who might be looking at me as an inspiration.” K-Star founder and Chief Instructor, Steve Logan, is incredibly proud of Nathan’s achievement, saying: “I’m extremely happy and proud to be in the position to give Nathan this opportunity, as he’s a great lad and he deserves the chance to concentrate, fully, on his Thai Boxing. He has a great future, as a Thai Boxer and an Instructor.”
