I'm Kenneth, 24 years old.
I live in Dessel, Belgium. Mostly know for the Graspop Metal Festival.
I currently work as an ICT Consultant and besides my work, my other interests are all martial arts.
I started with Judo on an early age, let say 8 years old, I don't remember, and practiced it until I was 17 years old.

I "only" got a brown belt (1st kyu) up until now, but I'm planning to train for my black belt pretty soon.
During my judo training I heared about MMA (which was free fight back in the day) and got interested.
Good for me, my step father opened the first gym in MMA/muay thai in Belgium (Team Topfighter).

I practice MMA now for over 7 years and still loving it!
In Belgium I got the opportunity to obtain a black belt in MMA (which sort of involves techniques for black belt muay thai & black belt judo)..
I think the belts are only done in Belgium because I can't find a lot of info on this.

Muay Thai Black Belt receives

MMA Black Belt receives
A normal judo black belt (with "MMA" written on it)

So after obtaining my Black Belt MMA I started to compete in amateur fights. I did 6 amateur fights (with 2 fights I accepted on 1 weeks notice, both which I lost), ending with a 3/3/0 record. After that I turned to Semi-Pro fighting (it's listed as Pro on Sherdog & MMA.COM).

Since turning Semi-Pro I only fought once and won by decision. The fight's somewhere on forum btw..
Also, the fight was in 2008 and was fought at 170lbs (77kg).
I have been struggling with a knee injury since that fight but I've started to pick up my training late 2011.
Now, I moved up to 185lbs (84kg).
Lol that should be enough info for now.
