Story

Having had mental health problems as a child from age of 13 martial arts and fighting has changed my life. It has had a major impact on my mindset when your feeling low inside it’s all about channelling it into something positive . Now, I’m not doing this for sympathy just awareness for people to talk more Freely. Talking helps unravel there issues it’s so much better to not block in. My friend committed suicide last year, I spoke to him the day before he seemed fine . It shows you never know what anyone is going through. Suicide especially in young men is in rise. So raising awareness can help so many people . So always be nice, it costs nothing be nice . Lots of us go through some sort of mental health issue in there life. It’s how you cope with it and how you deal with it that’s the important bit talking and exercise are two great tools to help focus on something positive . I haven’t fought for a long time due my own issues . Thankfully I managed to find light at the end of the tunnel and want people to know it’s possible to fight back when you have been knocked down !!
I’m feeling positive and ready to get back fighting and do what I love although I’m not in a great financial situation at the moment I’m giving mental health foundation all of my fight purse to raise awareness and get people talking and have healthy minds . Someone has supported me and had a great impact on my life shown me the light so If can lift a few spirits up or even motivate them to go gym for as little as one session I’m happy and my job is done . “ pain is temperory pride is forever let’s fight together “  So if you could please support and give anything small of little is appreciated thanks in advance . Let’s fight this together . If you are coming to the fight on 22nd I accept that as a donation as my money goes to charity I hope you all can make it and thanks for time 🤙 22nd June it’s show time 🤜
