About Strike

Stuart Wilks, 5th Degree Black Belt

Strike is made up of two exceptional Martial Artists, Liam Richards, 21 and Danny Ball, 24.

Strike are a performance martial arts duo that combine different styles of martial arts, acrobatics, gymnastics and dance.

Strike’s high intensity and explosive energy act burst onto the scene in 2008 through ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent; punching, kicking and flipping their way into the final show.

With over 15 million people in the UK tuning into the live final, Strike achieved their goal of making martial arts entertaining and inspired many to take up martial arts.

Since then, they have performed their entertaining brand of martial arts, acrobatics and dance at nightclubs, corporate events and festivals around the country.

Strike are now working with NHS Hull and the people of Hull to support them in achieving a healthy and successful future.


“Our first audition for Britain’s Got Talent on TV was an amazing experience. Both of our families were in the audience watching and as soon as we walked on stage, the crowd went crazy.”


“When we got to the final, it felt like we had already won. It didn’t matter what happened after that, we had said before the show that it would be absolutely amazing to even get to the final 10.”
