Little do people realize the amount of work, preparation and support behind what most people believe is a solitary sport. The corners and team mates rarely get the recognition they deserve. All can not be achieved with out help. Got the win last night at the Jonathon Ogden Charity event. A playful match that brought back my love for the sport and for martial arts.
It's almost time! June 23rd cannot come soon enough. I will be defending my belt against a specialist opponent. An excellent grappler Terry Bartholomew.
There is an unnatural amount of excitement to this fight. The Camp is going beautifully and the motivation is strong. My Thailand trip has "recharged" the batteries and has given me the tools to make things even more exciting.
Tickets are available. Thank you all for the support. It is literally what keeps me fighting.
Jet lag can be a serious issue. I'm Finally able to continue the grind. Time to bring back the knowledge gather and spread the love. Potential fight announcement coming soon!
I have the pleasure of being backed by several great companies. So I support them around the world. #baltimoreTshirtCompany
Although many people think Phuket Thailand is a tropical paradise. Well it is.....but not for fighters. It's days of working out in the heat. Doing long runs next to beautiful beaches. Not swimming in them. It's mostly work and little play in hopes of making minor improvements through repetition. Or maybe bringing back a new concept back home to share.
After a few changes to my life and a full hatred for this cold winter weather. I will be headed back to thailand to sharpen my skills.
Very good read. The behind the scenes of the fighter life and every person it effects.
Special Thanks to my sponsor. Blue Boa Fightwear for providing the tools needed for this latest photo shoot. Such a great company with a goal of supplying martial artists with the tools they need for an affordable price. I couldn't do it without them.
P.S These shirts are for sale on the STORE page.
Won a hard fought decision victory. Tim Goodwin is definitely a tough one. Thanks Everyone who traveled to the event!
