Why do you love to train at ISOHEALTH?

I love to train at ISOHEALTH because of the positive and supportive learning environment. Everyone on the mat is interested in both their own development and the development of their training partners. It seems to be innately understood that these two things form a symbiance. There’s no ego just good, fun training.
 

Favourite technique:

My favourite technique is the kimura, that grip always leads somewhere good. I also like delivering a solid body shot and doing deadlifts! I just like training.
 

Why did you start training at ISO?

I started training at ISOHEALTH in 2006 to develop well rounded fitness and fighting skills. I had already done a little bit of training in stand up fighting but after training once with Matt I quickly realised that I was only covering one range. Matt had (and has) an awesome clinch game and outstanding grappling. I wanted to be like that.
 

Nae is the Striking Coach for the MMA/Stand Up classes on Tuesday & Thursday nights and takes the Kids BJJ and Open Mat session on Saturday Mornings.

 

He is also available for private lessons in BJJ, striking, self defence and strength & conditioning.
