|Tell us about yourself:||
I have spent and still to this day continue to train/teach in the Korean Martial Art Taekwondo and have for 16 years. Iam a Kukkiwon Registered 4th Dan Black Belt and Affiliated with the W.T.F (World Taekwondo Federation) and B.T.C.B (British Taekwondo Control Board) Out of the 16 years 10 of them i have fought Full Contact WTF at Regional, National and European Levels, Winning British Championships 4 times, British Silver Medallist 5 times, I fought for the GB Team in Dublin and Won The International Gold and have won many more. Taekwondo is and will always be apart of my life.
As much as i Love Tae Kwon Do i have fallen in love with Muay Thai and did the moment i started training for Arjarn Mick Mullaney and his wife Trix March who both made me feel very welcome at The Sheffield Muay Thai Wicker Camp Gymnasium which is a Great Camp and has produced many World and other Champions over the years.
In all honesty i am new to the Muay Thai scene and am worried that at the age of 23 am i too old to be up there with the top fighters.
I suppose the only way i will ever tell is by Great Dedication.
Iam currently training at knox gym in Sheffield With a Great friend Farhad Ali AFK and would recommend anyone to train at the knox gym if intrested in Kickboxing.
I have never a bad word to say about any Martial Art as i believe they all have Great strengths but the spirit of Muay Thai is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G (Like No Other)
I trained at the Wicker Camp Gymnasium for 9 months but starting training Muay Thai at a new Sheffield Gymnasium, Thanapron Muay Thai Camp with an old Wicker Camp Fighter, Paul Timmins this week 28/12/2010 and iam really looking forward to it :)
Hopefully 2011 will see me competing at interclubs and then Hopefully Full Contact Muay Thai Oriental rules.
Only Hardwork and Time will tell.
The Futures Bright... The Futures Muay Thai :)
