WHEN & WHY DID YOU START MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING?
My dream is to be a professional athlete of the highest level, and I truly believe that MMA is the sport which tests athletes on all levels, mentally, physically, emotionally. When training to expand my rugby skill set, I got more involved in more MMA disciplines. I started off with wrestling and grappling and then transitioned into boxing too. My coach Richard Quan saw that I had some potential as an athlete. After training at FFM for a while my passion for MMA and fighting grew strongly. I was hooked on fighting in a very short space of time and I had lost all interests in pursuing rugby.
