Biography

Mark Weir lives in Quedgeleymarker, England with his wife Michelle and two children, Tamara and Lyle. Weir appears keen to pass his knowledge to the next generation of the family, as he once said of his daughter that “Tamara is really into martial arts and she is already picking up some of the skills.”

Weir has used his martial arts ability on screen as well as in the ring, starring in film student Scott Clifford’s low-budget feature Dealing with Danger 2, a taekwondo themed production. Weir played the villain and also choreographed the numerous action sequences, and according to Clifford (who trains with Weir in Barton), Weir “has been offered the chance to be in Hong Kong films.” . Clifford enlisted the services of Weir once again in his 2001 short film, "Dead Ringers", another of the student’s amateur works.

Martial Arts Background & Training Regimen

Weir began his martial arts training with judo and boxing, but later switched to taekwondo because his mother did not want him to box full-time . He gained his taekwondo black belt in 1988 from Master Hee Il Cho, then went on to win World Championships in both 1988 and 1991. Weir moved up from Light Heavyweight to Heavyweight over the two competitions.

Weir had perhaps his most notable success in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. On July 13 2002, he knocked out Eugene Jackson in 10 seconds at UFC 38. Fittingly, it was also the first time the UFC had been held in England, with a number of British mixed martial artists competing alongside Weir in the Royal Albert Hallmarker. Being an undefeated former world champion in Tae Kwon Do and Kick Boxing tournaments, Mark Weir brings to the cage renowned kicking and punching ability.

Weir holds classes in Gloucestermarker and Cheltenhammarker, where he teaches what he calls ‘Range Fighting’, combining muay thai, boxing, ju jitsu and ground fighting. He won a unanimous decision victory over Japanese wrestler Daijiro Matsui at Cage Rage 21. He lost against Paul Daley at Cage Rage 23 for both the Cage Rage World and British Welterweight titles.
