Are you a practitioner of martial arts disciplines?
Where are you training out of? What are your goals?
Over the past 20 years, I have practiced Karate, Ninpo, Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu, in that order.
I’m 26 now and I’m looking for a breakthrough. I’d like to build a record, so I moved to Asia two years ago. I reside in China and I travel to Thailand and Japan to watch promotions. I currently train under a 5th Dan, sixth-degree Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt. He is also a former Olympic Judo practitioner and coach.
I chose China because the MMA scene is emerging and the market is going to be phenomenal by my estimation. Plus, I think it will be an easier shell to crack for socio-economical reasons.
I’m surprised I made it this far. So now I’m thinking, all or nothing. If I fail, I can always start up a promotion, a team, or a dojo. So I want to network and discuss with all you SRK crew, from a practitioner’s angle.
