Graeme “Scotty Dog” Higgins


Graeme has been studying the martial arts since aged 13, training in Judo, Muay Thai, Jeet Kune Do and the Filipino Martial Arts; as part of a lifelong plan to become Batman.

Graeme started training with Dave Green in 1997, founding what was to evolve into the Glasgow Clan of Dog Brothers Scotland 2003 and was granted his Black Belt in the Filipino Martial Arts under Dave in May 2004.

He began training under Guro Marc ” Crafty Dog” Denny and Guro Benjamin “Lonely Dog” Rittiner in 2006 when he made the trip to Bern to fight in the first Euro Gathering. Since then he has fought in both Europe and the US on a number of occasions, became the first person in the UK to be both accepted into the Dog Brothers tribe and be allowed to teach DBMA, and in 2009 became the first full Dog Brother from the UK. After a 4 year Hiatus in which he completed his Undergraduate Degree in Technology and Education in 2012, he moved to Aberdeenshire, resumed his study of muay thai and became an active member in the Aberdeen clan lead by Guro Point Dog.

When the aberdeen clan disbanded in 2015 he decided to return to teaching and 2016 was certified as an Instructor in DBMA by Guro Crafty and awarded his red tags in the Lonely Variation by Guro Lonley. He has since founded the Abedeenshire Clan which is Based in Banchory, Royal Deeside.

He has also reluctantly realized that he will never become Batman.
