TRAINING: I wake up and head to the gym. There I choose which discipline to work on for the day. I go over some technical training and then have a session with more contact. I finish by reviewing more technique. When I'm done I go home and rest, and later I do some more physical training.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started when I was 13 years old, after watching a Kickboxing class in a Gym in Argentina. I have always practiced sports, and this one in particular caught my attention. That was when I started training.
