    Hello from Ian Nai in So. Mexico

    Hi all.
    My name is Ian Nai. I am a fighter from southern Mexico, although I have trained mostly in Brazil, where I went first to train Capoeira Angola under master Joao Pequeno. I quickly developed a taste for Vale Tudo and began training "unoficially" with some friends in Bahia. Later I met some of the folks of Chute Box out of Curituba (prof. picapau, and nilson de castro) I intent to go back to train with them in 2008.
    Last year I went to Japan, where after making the rounds I got my fist big chance handed to me on a silver platter: to fight Yuki Kondo in Pancrase Blow 11. I was really doing them a favour in a sense, as the shceduled fighter could not make it, and they could find no one crazy enough to take his place with no preparation time, three days before the fight. Well, I took it, although I had not trained seriously in almost a year, as i had been recovering from a pretty bad injury (piriformis tear).
    Needless to say, I went into the fight more concerned with keeping myself whole that actually winning, although I did get a couple good lick in, Kondo's ground skills got me before long.
    Now I am heading back to Japan to train in Pancrase, at Kondo's gym in Yokohama, and start from the bottom. Hopefullly I can work my way up to once again challenge the king of Pancrase!
    I am still interested in capoeira angola, although it is for the most part a no contact art, I feel it can prepare a fighter (especially in GPP/recovery, and coordination) and I continue to operate a Capoeira Angola academy in Southern Mexico.
    Anyway, I ran in to this site, and it looks like there are people here who know what they are about. If there is anyone goint to Tokyo or Yokohama to train or fight, id be glad to be in touch, be corner, or help out in any way.
    Peace all!

    I think Bas is too busy coaching in the IFL to go back to fighting competitively.
