I started wrestling my sophomore year when I became interested in mma and after sitting through like 300 KOTC fights in one weekend(seriously, I bought one of those KOTO packages that are like 13 hours of fights and watched them all in one weekend as well as 2 UFC cards) I realized wrestling was important and I wanted to be good at takedowns. I then trained informally through lots of sparring, rolling, wrestling, and instructional vids for the next three years while I was still in high school and then got into a couple of gyms and have been training formally for the last few months at Walker MMA and Prodigy and did a handful of classes at Gurgel's. I am 2-0 and I am 19 so pretty young in my mma life

I started in Tak won Do (spelling?) when i was like 8-9 and did for like 4 months and got a yellow belt but hated the fact that i wasn't learning how to fight at all, helped with my flexably. I then joined an american kickboxing style club and did that on and off for abolut 4 year and made it to brown belt (2 behind black). But when i decided to make the switch to mma and started taking training seriously my Gym closed down due to being in the worst area ever. So I tumbled around doing drugs for the next two year untill i got sick of weighing like a 100 pounds and doing nothing with my life. So now im at a place called world kickboxing that have boxing classes, Tai boxing, MAA BJJ and MMA Class. Now im like 144

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....


i hope not cuz im writing a sci fi novel

Started wrestling my sophomore year of highschool and wrestled through until graduation. Joined a kickboxing gym halfway through my junior year, trained there for around 8 months, had my 'debut' in a kickboxing tournament. I beat two guys, then lost in the finals. That was two months ago. Now I'll be (hopefully) starting at a jits school so that I can start doing MMA without having to worry about getting instantly submitted.

"I don't want them to like me, because when I'm in the ring, punches fly to the face. It is not a tenderness time. I am not falling in love. And he knows that when the fight starts I am kicking faces."
