HE may be known best for his fine hair-cutting skills but Simon Lawson has another string to his bow.
The owner of hair and beauty salon Simon Paul can also throw a kick or two - and recently scooped the student of the year award for the third consecutive year at Kash the Flash’s popular kickboxing club.
After falling in love with the sport five years ago, the 40-year-old keen kickboxer has continued to go from strength to strength and has received rave reviews off Kash - a four-time former world champion.
“He won the award for sheer hard work,” he said.
“I have noticed a good improvement not only in self defence but his overall fitness.”
Simon was presented with his award when the International Freestyle Association (IFA) held its annual students of the year party at the Second City Suite in Digbeth.
Nearly 1000 people attended the event from all over the Midlands.
