In loving memory of MJ!

As you would have seen, MJ was all about combat sports. Studying Martial Arts from the age of 19, MJ also had over half a decade of Muay Thai experience and more than three years of MMA experience, 13 years of boxing and focused mainly on Jiu-Jitsu the last two years. 

However, MJ also had plenty of experience in other sports, including tennis and swimming – competing at the state level for the latter. As a result, like many of TUF Club’s trainers, MJ had a holistic approach to fitness and training – knowing that over-specialization in one form of exercise usually delivers poorer results than a balanced approach.

MJ will be dearly missed by the TUF club community.
