    Default Greetings from Sweden!

    Hey there!
    My name is Ronnie. I am 22years old.
    Although I'm pretty new to the forum/community, I actually used to pop on every now and then.
    So i decided to make an account

    Most of my knowledge is in Judo. Started my training at the age of 6, mostly because my dad loves the sport, but i also have an uncle who is very respected with the elders in "Judo-Sweden".
    I competed at a very high level from the age of 8 until i was 18.
    Went to study 43miles away from my parents, and started doing BJJ.
    Then i moved 187miles away from home, for a job and gf at the time, and started doing MMA at GBG MMA (with fighters like: Joakim Engberg, Hamid "Akira" Corassani, Sirwan Kakai)

    Now i am back, only 43miles away from my old home. (But still to far for me to go there and train 5days a week)
    So i'm currently looking for a new job, and spending my free time doing Muay Thai and Boxing.

    Sorry that i got a bit long.
    And if there's anything you want to know about me, please ask away

    Hi Ronnie, welcome to the forum. It sounds like Sweden has some excellent training opportunities... or you are very good at finding them .

    Gbg is short for Gothenburg. The name of the city
    The variety is very good. I like doing a lot of different training, they tend to complement each other very well!

    I think it's a little bit of both. Once i become determined to start training something i have no experiance in, i research the different places, and choose the one with the best fighters and best coaches.
    At the moment i only focus on the Boxing and Muay Thai, since i have never done that before, i give those two sports my undivided attention.
    But almost every day i want to return to my old Judo dojo and hit the mat

    The narcissism of small differences is especially true in the martial arts.

    Hey Russ!
    The same to you, and thanks
    It's one of the first martial art-forums that i've found. And i was very attracted to be able to learn new thing, share tips & tricks, and simply just talk to other enthusiasts
