So, just in case you haven’t been following me on Facebook or Instagram, I’ve been on holidays with the family the past couple of weeks in Vietnam and Cambodia. The other couple of weeks I’ve just been too lazy to update haha. Looks like my “New Years Resolution” to update more often is failing hardcore.

Anyway here’s a couple of pics to see what I got up to.

Both countries are beautiful in landscapes, culture and people. I’d definitely love to go back and spend more time and perhaps even find some places to train (As always I did do some google searches to locate gyms but stayed strictly in holiday mode haha). Next post will include more pics and share a bit about my time over there.
On the home front, training is back into the swing of things. It’s f*cking awesome (and a b*tch at the same time) to be back on the mats. Besides the couple weeks on holidays, I was in self-exile from the mats because of stupid ringworm. It’s been on and off since last year and always coming back with a vengeance. I guess just got to be really, really nazi with my hygiene and scrub till I turn white in the shower.

Sometimes a bit of a break (mentally) is what you need to come back and feel refreshed. I find myself looking forward to each training session now and trying to improve on the last. It’s like I’ve “emptied” my cup and am ready to fill it again, so to speak. I’m loving martial arts again and not feeling like going to training is a chore. I still get those anxious nerves thinking about how good a spar we’ll have on that night, especially since a few of the boys have fights coming up (next post), but that’s always to be expected when you’re training somewhere as high level as Integrated MMA.
Stay tuned for next updates on my travels and upcoming fights from the Integrated MMA team including the return of Adrian “The Hunter” Pang.
