Wimp 2 Warrior - New TV Show
Hey chaps and chapesses,
This September, a new show is going to be filmed down here in Australia called Wimp 2 Warrior. The idea is that they will take 34 "Wimps" (either fit-ish people who have little or no Martial Arts experience, or people who are rather unfit, but have a bit of a MA background) and train them for 6 months for a professional MMA bout - everyone that makes it to the end will be paired up, and fight in a Brace (one of Australia's biggest MMA promotions) card - turn them into "Warriors".
Around 400 people applied - I was one of the lucky 34 to make it in. This is going to be a potentially life changing experience, and I can't wait. I'm currently overweight, unfit, and I paint and sell toy soldiers for Games Workshop as a living, and while I've got a little bit of Thai Kickboxing and BJJ experience, it's not expansive, nor have I been to training consistantly the past couple of years.
I thought I'd post up their Facebook link regardless. If you like the concept of the show, or are simply interested to see where it goes, like their page to keep up to date. Apparently they will have a couple of teaser vids of the pilot episode up on the Facebook page in the next week or so. I'm the tall fat bloke with a massive beard and yellow shirt.

I'll keep this thread up-to-date of any transpirins'.
