Born in Nottingham, England in 1967 Riky Ash grew up in a very poor family. On leaving school in 1983 Riky vowed to never return to his old school as he hated every day but said that his attendance at school was exemplary, never missing a day of comprehensive school in 5 years.

Riky's love of working with wood took him into a world of work as a cabinet maker at the age of 15. Again Riky never missed a day of work and became a highly skilled craftsman learning the fine art of cabinet making, wood carving, and wood turning. In 1988 his life changed for the better when he finally built up the courage to enroll in Kung-Fu classes.

Riky had a love of Kung-Fu for many years and decided that if he did not take it up now he never would. Yet again his dedication to his art was amazing, he attended every lesson available and also trained at home and at work. This was noticed by his Kung-Fu instructor and Riky progressed through his Kung-Fu sashes with ease.

In 1989 Riky was chosen to represent Britian in the German open and took first place in the Kung-Fu destruction and second place in the fighting. Riky progressed through the strict ranks of Shaolin Kung- Fu and attained the elite Shaolin Red Sash. To date he is a Fifth Dan Shaolin Kung-Fu expert. It was through this skill in Kung-Fu that progressed him into the world of Stunt work.

In 1993 Riky was accepted onto the Elite Equity Stunt register, he progressed through the ranks of Stuntwork and became a Stunt Co-coordinator. He regularly works as a Stuntman and Stunt Co-coordinator and has amassed a number of major television and film credits.

Not a person to reveal anything of his home life, he likes to keep work and home life completely separately. It is known he has a passion for exotic sports cars and has built up quite a collection.

  • He is featured in the 2000 edition of the Guinness book of records, "stunt heroes". He holds the world record for the greatest height range doubled by a stuntman. He has doubled every height range from 3" 6" through to 6" 4"; and also an age range of 6 years through to 87 years.
