Parts of martial arts movie filmed in Bexley
Several members of Nemesis Gym, a fitness academy located in the Erith shopping centre, recently starred in the hard-hitting urban movie, The Guvnors, which was released in cinemas across the UK on August 29.
Set in east London, the gritty film portrays the story of two gang leaders’ struggle to rule the nameless concrete jungle of a city council estate. Members of the Erith gym star throughout in the high energy and ultraviolent action flick, with several shots filmed in the gym itself.
Nemesis gym members turned cast members performed their mixed martial art skills in the movie during several fighting scenes.
Michael Teyki, head coach at Nemesis Martial Arts Academy, commented: “We are incredibly proud of our team for their participation and performance in The Guvnors – it is truly fantastic to see our members’ skills being shown in nationwide cinemas.”
Barry Owen, manager of the Erith Riverside shopping centre, added: “We would like to pass on our congratulations to everyone at Nemesis on their recent success in The Guvnors film.
“The team should be incredibly proud of their excellent performances and for showing both the Erith community and the rest of the UK just how talented and skilled the members at Nemesis are.
“We look forward to hearing even more exciting news about the team in the future.”
