Cristian, like most kids at the time, had his first taste of martial arts watching Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris films leading to his first step into martial arts – Tae Kwon Do. Having found Tae Kwon Do unrewarding he took his next step and started training Muay Thai in 2006 under Nick Stone.
After training at the legendary Bulldog gym and being surrounded by champions like Stuart and Steve Mckinnon to name a few, Cristian decided it was time to test himself.
Cristian had a number of semi-contact fights and eventually made his professional debut against a very experienced opponent. He won his first professional debut.
Cristian has been teaching since 2011 and enjoys coaching the technical and conditioning aspects of Muay Thai.
