Fight preparation?Morning training is strength and conditioning. Midday training is cardiovascular and fitness. Late afternoon/evening training is more cardiovascular and technical. I teach at night as well so the students get the best of both worlds by having their trainer fight against them as well.
When and why did you start training for fighting?Been doing Kickboxing since 1996. At first it was an activity to do with my friends and then the competing spirit took over. I was really blessed with this talent and today I compete in several forms (K-1, Low Kick, Kickboxing & Muaythai) of combat as the fights come up.
