Anthony started training in martial arts when he took up Shotokan karate at age 8, then started exploring kickboxing. He went on to study Thai Boxing, Judo, Aikido, Kung Fu, Wing Chun, Tae Kwon Do, Zheng Dao Lo and Brazilian Ju-Jitsu, and included fitness and weight training to improve his physical and mental conditioning. He was the only fitness athlete in the UK to be chosen to compete in the Weider Awards, at Mr Olympia in Las Vegas, USA. He is the creator of Dynamic Choi Kwon Do.
Anthony was nicknamed "The Helicopter" due to his use of flying spinning kicks in competitions; he won several tournaments. He retired from tournaments in 2007. He is now respected as a fitness expert and has written "Why Exercise? The Facts For A Healthy Lifestyle", a successful guide to fitness. He is a qualified professional coach with www.noble-manhattan.com, and has trained with www.nasm.org as an Optimum Performance Fitness Trainer. Respected as a martial artist and coach around the world, he has written for a number of martial arts magazines.
Anthony studies nutrition in detail and actively promotes veganism. "I changed to a vegan diet in 2006 and it has been the best thing I feel I have ever done in my life." wrote Anthony in 2009. "Not only is it what the worlds leading scientists are saying is the way forward for health, it saves animals from cruelty. If a client needs to lose weight these days it is very easy to accomplish this by getting them to follow a vegan diet, and eliminating processed, high sugar, high fat foods. I did not know the dangers of eating meat 3 years ago, until I started reading the latest research."
"Now, typical advice to clients coming to me for fitness and health-related training is... if you want to live longer, feel a greater sense of wellness than you have ever felt before AND make a leap forward in consciousness, eat a vegan diet."
"I am Vegan and proud not to be contributing to animal cruelty and violence. I also feel a Vegan diet to be the best way to stay lean, fit and healthy. The evidence really is conclusive: eating a nutrient-poor, junk food-based diet seriously negatively affects your health. More recently, evidence is now confirming fast that eating meat, and dairy-based products is disease producing."
