My mental health and update
So as you all know... I have the tendency to be a bit crazy. With that comes the other side of my personality where I need quiet and some time away to reflect. In this episode I open up about some of the things I have gone through recently and how I try to put things in place to help it in future. A bit unrelated to Muay Thai this one bit hopefully something someone can take some value from.

Pulling from a fight is never easy. This one was no different.
It hurts to have to pull out from a fight. There have been people relying on you, tickets sold and more. Pulling from a fight isn't come to easily or lightly. It has been thought a lot about and the decision has been made. We move forward, learn from this and continue our perpetual motion towards wherever it is we are headed.
