Well, after years of substance abuse and addiction, James Gregory decided that his life style needed to change before he headed down an even more self-destructive path… and that’s how he found Muay Thai.

James has had his fair share of amateur fights and is always dropping some major knowledge as a contributor on Throughout this podcast we talk about a whole range of topics including:

  • When he initially became aware of his detrimental lifestyle and decided to make a life change.
  • How he fell into Muay Thai after just lifting weights at the local YMCA.
  • How training Muay Thai has been an important tool in keeping him healthy, focused, and disciplined.
  • Why he decided to go Paleo and how he feels it benefits his training and overall lifestyle.
  • How he started fighting at a older age and how age shouldn’t stop anyone from training Muay Thai.
  • His struggles in the ring and how he’s been able to use his struggles as a tool to learn more about himself and his fighting style.
  • How he’s able to keep motivated and training hard after losing multiple fights.
  • How blogging and using the internet as a business tool has helped him live a more flexible and free lifestyle.
  • Why he decided to train with the Thai boxing legend, Coban, in NYC and what it’s like training underneath one of the best fighters of all time.
  • His plans for the near future and what his goals are with his training.
