My Goals: I would like to eventually go pro in Muay Thai. Become a recognizable name. Be a fighter people look forward to watch fight. Inspire others to do the same.
Why I started training Muay Thai: I was and still am a fan of the UFC. So at the time I figured I'd give it a try. See what it's like. And because I enjoyed the stand up part of MMA more, I thought it would be a good idea to start with Muay Thai. I found a local gym that happened to be one of the top gyms in the city. With an accomplished trainer/fighter and plenty of amazing amateur fighters it was easy to fall in love with the sport. I'm still a fan of MMA but I've become passionate about Muay Thai and dedicate a lot of my time to it.
About Stay Fly Muay Thai: After training for about four years at this other gym I wasn't completely happy. I was also going through a rough time in my life. I decided to leave. Didn't necessarily know what I wanted to do. Depression was becoming a serious problem for me and life didn't have much purpose. Suicide was never a thought, but death wasn't feared. Around this time a friend of mine told me about Justin opening up his own gym. Suggested we check it out. I knew who Justin was and knew he was always entertaining to watch fight. Always thought the "we fight sexy" thing was a little bit corny. But then again I take pride in my corny jokes so I figured I'd fit right in. I eventually reached out to Justin and joined the gym. I can now say that it is one of the best decision I have made. Stay fly muay thai has a large part in curing me of my depression. Justin and the rest of the team have become family to me. Stay fly Muay Thai has changed my life and I am forever grateful to be a part of an amazing gym.
