Ashley McKenzie’s Family!

Ashley McKenzie grew up in London with his family, but before he began in martial arts his start to life was incredibly hard. At the age of only 18 months Ashley had heart problems and was forced into having an operation on his heart. This was a troubling time for his parents as they struggled with this near death experience. Ashley recovered from his operation and grew up with a bundle of problems. Ashley was diagnosed to have ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder) he also had problems that caused him to have seizures and he had trouble hearing and was forced to wear a hearing aid. With all of Ashley’s problems, going to school would be extremely difficult. He got himself in trouble a lot and had the reputation of a bad boy, after being expelled from school Ashley’s parents were forced to send him to a special school for his behavioral problems. Ashley was seeking attention like most children suffering from ADHD, and by the age of 11 had found Judo by an unlikely source. 

Ashley had had an altercation with another boy on the streets of West London, where this boy tried to steal his Pokemon card. As they tussled the boy threw Ashley over his shoulder and into the pavement numerous times, before making off with his prized Pokeman card. That night Ashley remembered thinking about how he was throwing me, so he searched the internet and before long realised it was a Judo maneuver. Ashley then joined his local Judo academy where he found the boy who robbed him, they became friends and Ashley got his Pokemon card back. 

As Ashley started to train in the art of Judo, the structure and excitement of training and competing helped Ashley focus his behaviour. This helped Ashley find a pathway towards a better future, Ashley has maintained that Judo saved his life.

To this day Ashley is now in a relationship with fellow Judoka Automne Pavia, and 3 years ago they welcomed their daughter Lana-Rose into the world.
