Nick Hughes is a former French Foreign Legionnaire, bodyguard to the rich and famous and martial arts instructor. He holds black belt status in several styles of Karate, Aikido, Judo, Ju-jutsu as well as ranks in military unarmed combat and filipino martial arts. He has both boxed and kick-boxed professionally and competed in Judo competition internationally. As a bouncer in some very rough clubs, and a military police officer in the Legion, he learned first hand what martial art techniques worked and which ones didn't. That puts him in a unique position compared to a lot of instructors who are teaching what amounts to theory. Wanting to move up in the security world he decided to pursue a career in diplomatic security and quickly found out a background in Special Forces was going to be an asset. With that in mind he joined the French Foreign Legion as both a para-commando and military police officer. After leaving the Legion he worked for various agencies all over the world looking after clients such as members of the Saudi Royal Family, VIPs, businessmen and rock stars. During that time he began writing for Fighting Arts International about practical martial arts and teaching on various bodyguard training courses. He appeared on Spike TV's "Deadliest Warrior" in the series penultimate episode about the French Foreign Legion versus the Gurkha. He popped up on Paladin Press' radar and filmed a series of instructional DVDs and began working on his 2nd book on self defense. He has also produced an app called I-bodyguard which is the salient points from his book which is available on both I-phone and Android. He is now on a quest to train half a million people in self-defense before casting off his mortal coil and teaches Warriors Krav Maga out of NC and various affiliate schools. He's also currently working on books about his time in the Legion, Hard Skills, Goal Setting and adventures from his security days.
