Malcolm is trained by Kelvin Gill, one of the coaches at The Alan Winner Academy and Kristian is trained by Alan Winner.
Sanda or San Shou is a full contact fighting sport held on a platform not a ring. It includes punches, kicks, takedowns, wrestling and pushing. With one major difference that makes Sanda different from all other styles: When the competitors hold each other in a clinch, they have only two (2) seconds to launch an effective attack, otherwise the referee will separate them.
