BRAVE Anti Bullying Event

I participated in an anti-bullying event called BRAVE on 22nd March. Anthony was joined by fellow UFC fighters BJ Penn, Urijah Faber, James Tehuna and Dylan Andrews. The event was to raise awareness and tackle ways to stop bullying. The event was held at the UFC gym in Sydney.

Moorebank MMA, BJJ and Muay Thai Kickboxing Gym

Liverpool MMA gym moved to Moorebank

We moved our Liverpool MMA, BJJ and Muay Thai Kickboxing gym to Moorebank. We opened Monday 10th March at our new location. It is a much bigger and better place than our previous one. It has a much better training feel to it. All of the students are very happy with the move and new facilities. On top of that it is easy to get to and there is unlimited free parking. We will be having a Grand Reopening Day on Sunday 13th April.

BJJ grading - Anthony Perosh presenting Bren Foster with his brown belt

BJJ brown belt grading

I presented Bren Foster with his BJJ brown belt last Friday. Bren has been training with me for 10 years. Bren owns and runs Elite Martial Arts and Fitness in Minchinbury teaching Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai and BJJ. He is a great coach to all of his students and he himself is a great student of martial arts. A very rare trait! On top of that you can see him show off his martial arts and acting skills in movies. Check out his latest movie Force of Execution.

UFC Fit Training Sydney Anthony Perosh and RobMcCullough

UFC FIT training in Sydney

The UFC Fit (Full body Intensity Training) trainer course was run at UFC Gym Sydney on 29th January by Rob "Razor" McCullough. Rob is a former WEC World Lightweight Champion. There were about 20 instructors including myself. We were shown and then practiced all the techniques and then practiced running a class. It is a great workout for the non fighter and a good introduction to MMA fitness training.

Anthony Perosh on MMA Kanvas talking about coward punching

UFC fighters unite against ‘coward punchers’

There is no link with MMA to coward punching and the violence on Sydney streets. That is my opinion and the opinion of the majority of people. Unfortunately there is a very small minority out there who cause trouble on the streets of Sydney. Here is an interview I recently did with Adam Ireland of MMA Kanvas talking about MMA, coward punchers and violence on Sydney streets.

 

Merry Christmas 2013
