Little

I grew up being extremely active (ADHD fortunately never medicated) and was introduced to sports such as swimming, skiing, quads, jet-skis, horse riding, combat sport from very early on under the care of loving parents.

Journey

Stubborn and curious by nature I have learnt (and still do) a few lessons through countless mistakes.

I have stories of broken bones, grizzly bears, depression, abuse, and plenty of other "mishaps".

I wish to share short-cuts.

I don't mind failing and failing again as I have a borderline compulsive adherence to concept until I manage to break them or learn something... but that doesn't mean you have to.

Coaching

After having spent ten or so years doing martial arts and two years training in remote small village in China, I started coaching MMA and self-defense in 2005 in BLCU (Beijing).

While my love for combat sport hasn't changed, my transition as an athlete toward endurance sports made me realize their therapeutic use and their accessibility.

Although I hold period self-defense trainings for the community my main focus is now settled on health and endurance sport in general.

Athlete

I always have been more attracted to training than racing. I like to undertake challenges to test biomechanics and the limits of my mind.

In late 2020 I set out to complete a new world record and cover 1.9km swimming, 90km biking and 21km "running" for 101 consecutive days (the 7030+).
