Rhys Richards



My name is Rhys i live in New Zealand. I have a huge interest in Martial Arts especially MMA. I try to watch every MMA event I can and try to keep up to date with all news!

I am also a practitioner of the trade, I started in ITF Tae Kwon Do when I was 12 back in about 2002, I did this on and off for about 5 years. When i was 15 i also started Muay Thai, I started fighting from the get go in amateur competitions, By the time i had started Muay Thai I had put away about 40 fights, Muay Thai was a new experience much harder than TKD, It was right up my alley. I started competing in Muay Thai fights and in total had about 6 full Thai rules fights. When i was about 20 years old I had been fighting for 8 years and had lost some of the passion, i left the sport for about a year , During this time i started a family concentrated on my job, I had a chance in early 2012 to train my friend so i took up the offer and fell back in love with training. I now train in Muay Thai, Wrestling, BJJ, I am hoping to compete sometime soon in a MMA bout.

I also have a Lovely Wife, A Lovely child, A House, A car, and i also have a couple of awesome friends ;)
