    Hey guys, please check out Wimp 2 Warrior, i started this nearly four years ago to help promote grass roots MMA both here in Australia but ultimately around the world.

    MMA is becoming a huge sport, we all know this but fight gyms around the world still struggle to pay bills and keep their doors open, why? because MMA is becoming an armchair sport, a sport that has a disconnect with its fans. Sell them a T-shirt, get them to buy a paper-view but where is the encouragement to get involved, try out a class at your local gym?? Its all about money and thats fine, its a business, i understand that BUT our sport has so much to offer and my goal with Wimp 2 Warrior is to demonstrate that you don't have to be a ripped up, tattooed bad boy/girl to train in our sport, anyone can and should do it, it really can be live changing!

    W2W (Wimp 2 Warrior) is going strong with a large global fan base but we're just getting started.
    Here is the trailer to last years series which is currently being sold around the world. Series 3 which we finished filming a couple of months ago had 3 x UFC champ Jens Pulver as our full time wrestling coach and Mike Dolce coming in to help the guys make weight!

    If you love our sport, which I'm sure you all do, please share and support what we're trying to do here at W2W. The Australian series 4 kicks off later this year with the UK and U.S not far behind. You can contact me on here or through my email cranny.ma@gmail.com

    Thank you!

    Woah, this is pretty great! So its a reality show to get the average joe into amateur fighter?

    We have a good sized English and Canadian membership, but not sure how many Aussies. Mind if I move this thread over to our Cageside forum where most of the MMA talk happens? You'll get more views :)

    @Richie Cranny@Richie Cranny welcome! Ive seen this around before and think its a great idea for a great cause. Keep posting here and I'll do my best to tweet it out and put it up on my IG. I'll find you on Twitter and give you a follow as well if you're there. You have Instagream by chance?

    There's not really that many options here in Australia, the gyms here are Muay Thai and boxing dominant with few quality bjj black belts. Training for wrestling almost doesn't exist here and quality coaches for teh wrestling is even more rare.

    Thanks for sharing mate.

    Hey @Crooklyn@Crooklyn I was just wondering if is this something that might be of interest to you?
    The US version is kicking off with Jens & Spencer Fisher as coaches.
