Who We Are
TopTier Muay Thai founder Chris Bradford
Chris began his martial arts career in Ashihara Karate where he spent seven years training to the rank of Black Belt. During this time he was an active and successful competitor in Full Contact Karate Tournaments.
Chris realised a new passion for Muay Thai when the opportunity presented to train with the legendary John Wayne Parr at Boonchu Gym on the Gold Coast. Since then Chris has put his efforts into developing himself as a student of Muay Thai.
His efforts to further himself in the art have seen him travel to Thailand, the birth place of Muay Thai, where he trained and competed during his time there.. In 2010 Chris fulfilled a personal ambition and ventured into the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. His action packed matches have left audiences in no doubt that he is a skilled competitor and fight fans have been enthralled by his competitiveness and athleticism in the ring.
In addition to his own training and fighting, Chris is also very passionate about his students. Chris is keen to help all students reach their goals, whether it be to improve their fitness, self confidence or compete in the ring.
Chris fights professionally all over the country and overseas and has seen him capture many titles over his professional period.
