Journey to the cage

Challenge accepted

Can the average person be trained to at least be competitive in an amateur Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) match?

This is the challenge given to me by, professional MMA athlete Roevan de Beer, I accepted his challenge. We started training in November and I soon realised that this training is not a joke. It is intense but it works, before we took a break for December I had already lost 4 kg, which I promptly gained over Christmas.

We set a goal of six months to prepare for my first bout.

Check the above video to see how my first training session back went.
