You have participated in sports for several years and have a competitive streak that is sometimes a little too competitive for referees and administrators when you play. There’s nothing nasty about it, you just want to win, but the constant run ins with authority are taking their toll on your enjoyment and wallet as you pay off fines.
A night out with the lads is about to change your life. They took you to an MMA event in Camden Town in London and you loved it. You have been going through YouTube and TV channels ever since trying to watch more of it. You want to get involved and give it a go, and then you discover that there is a dedicated academy for MMA in Reading.
