Today is the 15 year anniversary on when I made my MMA debut at Spartan 8 on the Gold Coast.
I entered an 8 man tournament and won all 3 matches by submission to win the tournament. All the other 7 competitors were experienced and some of them had undefeated records. The video had my walk out song Kickstart My Heart playing but Facebook blocked it!
About 6 months earlier I received my BJJ Black Belt. I had decided to stop my BJJ competition and start competing in MMA. My MMA career lasted 12 years, 25 fights, 15 wins and 5 of my wins in the UFC.
My goal now is to coach and help my students achieve their goals. And I want them all to do much better than me!

I taught a BJJ seminar and attended a BJJ grading at Team Perosh BJJ Affiliate academies Mackay MMA and Advance Martial Arts in Mackay and Brisbane last week.
At Mackay MMA extra special congrats to new BJJ Blue Belt Nadia, new BJJ Purpe Belt Toni and to Head Coach David Garnham for grading to Brown Belt 4th Stripe. A great couple of days!
At Advance Martial Arts extra special congrats to new BJJ Black Belt John and to new first degree BJJ Black Belt Lenny. At the end I presented Head Coach Matt Cooper with his 3rd Degree BJJ Black Belt.
Thank you to everyone who came to my BJJ seminar and congratulations to everyone who graded.

I had dinner with BJJ and MMA super coaches Carlos Machado, Greg Jackson and John Danaher at a restaurant in Burwood in Inner West Sydney. Carlos and Greg were in town as part of the Team Perosh Mixed Martial Arts Grand Opening. John was teaching BJJ seminars in Sydney. We were also joined by Fari, Frank and my fiancée Ana. A good night.
The second day of our Grand Opening was just as good as the first!
Greg Jackson from Jackson-Wink taught a 3 hour seminar to open up the day. In the afternoon Marcus “Buchecha” Almedia and Leandro Lo taught a 3 hour BJJ seminar. We had an opening ceremony and lunch in between the seminars. Knockout Nutrition from Five Dock was handing out free samples and Champ Mouthguards were fitting custom mouthguards. We finished the day off with gi open mat.
Here are a few photos of the day.
What a great first day of our Grand Opening! And there is still one more day today.
Brad Riddell taught a great striking seminar. Then over lunch we had Champ Mouthguards fitting custom mouthguards and Precision Athletica providing free treatment. My BJJ coach taught a BJJ seminar first to adults and then kids. We finished the day off with nogi open mat.
Lots of photos coming soon!

I taught a BJJ seminar at Team Perosh Affiliate BJJ academy Kemp's Thai Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts last Friday night. I taught my favourite sub the Kimura and lots of set ups, finishes and trouble shooting. Thank you to Coach Richard Kemp and his academy for inviting me and for your usual great hospitality!
