    More Mucking Around in the Past: Marvin Perry Interview

    I found this using the Wayback Machine


    Ground N Pound Q&A
    WITH Marvin Perry 04-17-04
    Interview By David "GNP" Probst
    GNP: First off Marvin I want to thank you for taking the time to talk to
    me & the fans.
    Marvin: Your welcome.
    GNP: So for those who are hearing of you for the first time, tell us who
    Marvin Perry is, were he came from, and what got you into the world of
    San Shou and Kickboxing?

    Marvin: I was born in Trinidad West Indies; I have always been a huge
    fan of Martial Arts for as long as I can remember. I moved to Boston
    in 1993 approximately 1 year later I began training in traditional Kung
    Fu where I met a friend of mine by the name of Al Loriaux, who
    introduced me to San Shou. I did Kung Fu for 2 years then I quit Kung
    Fu in May 1996 and I have been doing San Shou ever since.

    GNP: Take us through a typical day of Marvin's training. What are the
    things you work on the hardest? How often do you train? Who do you
    train with?

    Marvin: Sure, as far as what I work on the hardest... Well, I'm never
    satisfied with myself and I try to work equally hard on all the
    different elements of my training, ex. punching, kicking, throwing,
    catching kicks and knees. In a typical day of my training I usually
    start off with weight training then I'll move on to focus mitts, bag
    work and thai pads. I also do a lot of interactive drills to develop
    timing + coordination as well as sparring, I do a lot of sparring. I
    usually train 5 to 6 days per week; I train with my coach Josh
    Bartholomew as well as a lot of other kickboxers and boxers.

    GNP: I've been to your web site www.marvinperry.org, you have quit a list
    of accomplishments. Is there one which stands out more in your mind.

    Marvin: No, I am equally proud of all of my accomplishments.

    GNP: You've held quit a few San Shou National Championships as well as
    several Kickboxing Championships, tell us a little about your career.
    What is your complete record?

    Marvin: Yes, I have held several San Shou National Championship Titles,
    when I started my Kickboxing career for the first 4 years I only
    competed in San Shou. After competing in San Shou for 4 years I felt
    that I had enough experience to do well in other types of Kickboxing as
    well. I have won titles in San Shou, Sanda, Full Contact & Muay Thai
    Kickboxing, my complete record is, 23 Wins/ 1 Loss/ 10 Ko's.

    GNP: Its been said that your win over Adam Caldwell was called
    prematurely by the ref, what would you say to that?

    Marvin: I agree, the fight was stopped prematurely however, the referee
    stopped the fight because, Adam wasn't fighting back enough. I
    honestly don't know if that was the right decision.

    GNP: What are your plans for the future? Do you have dreams of getting to
    Pride, UFC or one of the other main stream events? Or do you prefer the
    more traditional Muay Thai / San Shou type matches?

    Marvin: You know, people always ask me if I would ever consider doing
    UFC, well I have no experience fighting on the ground so I probably
    won't fight in UFC anytime soon. Who knows, maybe I will learn some
    grappling in the future and I might decide to do it but I would really
    like to get into the K-1 circuit that is my long-term goal.

    GNP: With your training do you have time to keep up with MA as a fan, if
    so who are some of your favorites?

    Marvin: Yes I keep up with Ma as a fan, in Kickboxing some of my
    favorite fighters are Ernesto Hoost, Remy Bonjasky and Mirko CroCop.
    In MMA some of my favorite fighters are Rickson Gracie, Frank Shamrock
    and Tito Ortiz.

    GNP: If you had the chance to fight anyone in MA, who would you like to
    fight and in what type of event?

    Marvin: I would like to fight Carter Williams in a K-1 event.

    GNP: When was your last fight and when is your next one? Are you
    training any differently to prepare for your next fight?

    Marvin: My last fight was in November 2002, I don't know when my next
    fight will be, as I'm very busy right now I'm a full time College
    student. I'm still training and I will fight again but, I'm not sure
    when I have a lot of things going on right now.

    GNP: Ok Marvin here is your chance, anything you would like to say to
    the fans, promoters or sponsors? We are proud to carry your voice to
    them all.

    Marvin: My name is Marvin Perry don't forget it, I haven't fought in a
    while but, I'm not done, and I'll definitely be back.

    GNP: Marvin we really want to thank you for giving us a little of your
    time, I am sure the fans will enjoy reading this as much as I did
    setting it up.

    Marvin: It was my pleasure.

    GNP: Thanks and good luck in your future endeavors. We look forward to
    hearing great things about you.

    Marvin: Thanks for giving me this opportunity and I wish you the best of luck.
    Best Wishes
    Marvin Perry

    A guy that actually admits a fight should have continued? Cool.

    Marvin is very humble for a bad ass.

    He's been sparring again, here or there. I really hope he's not done fighting.
