Alex Channon

Alex Channon is Lecturer in Physical Education and Sport at the University of Greenwich, UK. His doctoral research explored the personally and socially transformative practices of sex-integrated training and competition in a range of different combat sports disciplines, and has been published across a range of international, peer-reviewed journals. As a martial artist, Alex has trained for two years in freestyle kickboxing, and five years in shaolin kung fu, within which he has experience of instructing mixed groups. Beyond mixed participation in combat sports, Alex’s research interests include broader analyses of martial arts training cultures, and representations of gender and sexuality in sports media.
