I trained to be a professional marathon runner for years, but my physique is not built for it (I'm short and stocky), I tried different training sessions including military type. About 8 years ago I tried kickboxing and 4 years ago muay thai, recently also BJJ, and that's what's I've done since.
I'm also a huge fan of martial art events such as k-1, MMA, and others. I train with lots of fighters both amateur and professional.
I'm called Frank the tank because of my physique, I'm 5'5 180 lbs, compact body, like a wrestler.
