A new scheme, using former soldiers and backed by the Government, is being trialled in schools. Called Commando Joes, it's aimed at teaching pupils about fitness, self-discipline and motivation and could be heading to the east soon.
Children taking part in one of many schools across the country, appear to be enjoying their new style of P.E lesson.
Mike's not the only Commando in town, after starting the project on his own in 2009, he now employs an army of 50 staff, helping children from as young as three.
Classes have become more and more familiar to pupils, Commando Joes have being coming to schools for four years, and it's positive results seen by teachers and parents, which has helped him secure a million pounds from the government to help take this across the country.
For Mike this is an ambition he's had since leaving the army, and he now hopes he can help more young people reach their potential.
