Born in Slovenia, my dream was always to become a professional athlete and I was active in multiple sports and athletic events from an early age. My first love was Basketball which I ended up playing at a competitive level in Croatia while in High School, but due to injuries I never exceled to the very top.
Playing sports turned into coaching as this was a natural progression after being team captain on multiple teams and sports. This love was replaced with natural bodybuilding after my move to England, however I didn’t find this challenging enough.
Martial arts was always a hidden passion of mine as i remember watching Bruce Lee movies and playing Ninjas since 1996! 🙂
I wanted to challenge myself further so i looked up for the best places to train and Five Star Health and Fitness led me to Coach Dean and team #NFM two and a half years ago. Now I dream, breathe and live Mixed Martial arts 🙂
I feel fortunate enough to be surrounded and supported by the best coaches and team mates the UK has to offer and now compete as a Semi-Pro MMA fighter looking to make some noise on UK scene. (3-1). I have also been sponsored by Ginger Tree Therapies, Sam Hall Osteopath, Total Well Being Solutions, Impact LPA, Frontline Protection SGD & Five Star Health and Fitness.
Besides competing, I also love teaching, passing on the knowledge and skills I have gained onto kids and other adults.
