About The Team

Eastern Tigers is run by the 2010 Kickboxing Instructor of the Year, Sensei John MacInnes. John is a 2nd Dan black belt with 12 years fighting and 7 years teaching experience.

A former Scottish champion who has fought in many countries worldwide, John has taken the Tigers to competitions all over the home nations, as well as Malta, Italy and Sicily. The 2013 Sicily competition saw the team returning with a junior World Title, and an adult World Title in 2015, as well as a silver medal at the WKC World Championship in 2016.

Eastern Tigers is made up of individuals from all walks of life, with ages ranging from 4 to 50. We train hard and support each other, regardless of ability. Our experience ranges from white to black belt and we are always happy to welcome new faces at our Buckie and Huntly classes.
