“When I Was A Beginner…” :

Fitness and Martial Arts Instructors Reminisce


An excerpt from our recent “When I was a beginner…” series where FaMA’s instructors share how they got started in martial arts. This week we’re featuring Kids Muay Thai Assistant Instructor Jerome.


I played football since I was young, and even dreamed of being a professional footballer. However, I discovered Muay Thai at 16. I found martial arts a unique and useful way of keeping fit, as it enabled me to learn some self defence while exercising. Initially, this choice was met with some resistance from my parents, as they initially saw it as a violent sport.


Another obstacle came by when I ended up in a motorcycle accident, leaving me unable to walk for over a month. It was one of the lowest points of my life, as I needed crutches to get around, and I could barely do anything on my own.
I eventually recovered and returned to FaMA for training. However, I wasn’t able to kick with my injured leg. Thankfully, the instructors were able to accommodate my situation, and help me improvise my training. This is where I was introduced to boxing.


The best advice I was given by one of my teachers was to “never go 100% all the time”. It works really well because you would not tire easily, and it also keeps your opponent guessing!
