Howzit from Switzerland

Howzit people. Just taking a couple of minutes here to introduce myself a little.

My name's Justin from Switzerland, but grew up in South Africa. I've been into martial arts most of my life. Started off with karate as a little kid, then moved onto some sort of MMA class. Back then I didn't even know what MMA was but I really enjoyed it and was learning pretty damn quick too.

When I moved to Switzerland with my family I took about a three year break to learn German and so on. After getting a nice round belly and pretty unfit I decided it was time to get back into it. I took up Southern Shaolin Lohan Kung-Fu and after a year joined a Muay Thai gym where they also teach MMA, so I took that up as well.

Been training for about a year, have, however, stopped now for about a year to concentrate on my studies. No time to do both at the same time. I got into MMA about a year ago. Didn't have a clue what it was at first, thought it was brutal cage fighting, but I quickly began to appreciate it and love it. I don't have much knowledge of UFC fights beyond Youtube as they don't show their fights here in Switzerland. This is why I've joined up here. To get to know the sport and the people involved alot better. I look forward to meeting you guys and reading interesting threads. From what I've seen already, looks like you guys provide pretty good info.

Well enough with me rambling on...I write too much sometimes.

Cheers,

Justin

Hey Justin, we're really glad to have you here. You got some world knowledge, South Africa and Switzerland, good stuff. If you're looking to find more MMA, then you came to the right place.

Check out the video download section. There's tons of great fights, some you may have seen, but some you surely haven't. Its like a treasure trove of MMA.

If you ever have any questions, feel free to hit up one of the Staff Members, we'll be glad to help you out. Enjoy your stay bud.
