    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.

    Here's the link to their FB page; https://www.facebook.com/Wimp2Warrior

    And here is the link to my W2W profile picture; https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=307984032627235&set=a.3073107126945 67.69718.269724849786487&type=3&theater

    And a picture of me at the tryouts; https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

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

    Cheers,
    Benny

    Nice work! Well done on qualifying.

    if it is on the Brace card does that mean the fights are up on the Goldie?
    Dum spiro, spero.

    Thanks!

    Not sure yet. Solid details will be out in the next few weeks or so. Gold Coast tends to see the most Brace cards I think, so it's possible.

    Forgot to mention, this show will also include a free trip to Thailand for Muai Thai training. How rad is that?

    No idea I'm afraid - though hopefully there will be some sort of online access.

    Is it a full time job now? or do you continue working while training in the evening.
    Some of the guys there look like they have more than just little background in MA.
    Good look, and stay safe while training.

    Good luck with it mate! Sounds like a great oppotunity - time to get working out I think! Keep us all posted on how it goes - I'd love to see the series when it is finished, with luck we will get to see it in the UK.

    All the best.
