Exhibition Fight History
When & why did you start martial arts training?
I started kickboxing and at age 12 and moved to MMA at age 18.
How and why did you transition to MMA?
I was looking for a greater challenge than kickboxing so I started MMA which is the ultimate challenge in martial arts.
How did you get your fight name?
I did a lot of kicks in my training and my first day at my current club I kicked Tumisang Madiba in the nose which was not intentional and in one of my amateur fights I knocked Pietie Coxen with a kick and after that people at my gym started calling me Mr. Kick.
I don’t have a specific technique I use any technique and style that works in the moment.
Who is your hero, and why?
My mom, because she inspires me and taught me a lot of lessons in my life and about life. She also
supports me 100% in my fighting career.
What other interesting information can you tell us about yourself?
I like to teach children better values in life and I’m doing so by going to schools and in my own club and speaking to them. So in essence I like to make a difference in teenagers and kids lives.
What does it mean for you to fight in EFC?
It is an honour to fight for EFC.
