Darren Higgs

Darren is Founder and Head Trainer of his beloved Quantum Martial Arts. Darren is also the reigning 2019 World Ju Jitsu Champion. Darren has spent over 20 years training, competing and studying the martial arts, and feels he is only getting started.

Darren’s real passion is teaching the martial arts to children and adults alike. Darren gets particular satisfaction out of seeing students achieve their personal goals. While officially becoming the World Champion or achieving Dan grades are nice and well earned, it does not compare to seeing the thrill of a child earning their first martial arts belt, or a student overcoming great adversity to do well at their grading. That is the real pleasure in teaching martial arts.

Darren thoroughly enjoys his training (loves it more and more by the day), and tries to pass on that enthusiasm to his fellow students. He will "walk his talk" in the dojo , which creates a great training atmosphere for all.

Darren's inspiration for training and running Quantum Martial Arts are the students themselves. He really wants all students to succeed in martial arts and life. As a teacher, that is how you measure your success. Darren's method of teaching is fun, energetic and technical. Darren also aims to motivate the students by being positive, supportive and providing encouragement, both inside and outside the dojo.

See you in the dojo!
