Before turning pro, Anas had a good share of amateur fights that helped pave the way to a lucrative professional career. “The Moroccan Sensation” explains that many people are jumping in on the MMA-bandwagon nowadays, without taking the time to develop their skills.
Anas Siraj Mounir:
I have noticed here in the Middle East that fighters want to turn professional straight away. That’s the wrong way of approaching MMA fighting. You have to go through an amateur phase where you are allowed to make mistakes, you learn from all the competition, and you improve your skills and philosophy when it comes to fighting. Once you turn pro, that’s the real deal.
During the four week MMA fight camp organized by FitRepublik, amateur fighters will go through rigorous training to work on strength, conditioning, cardio, and martial arts skills, concluded by a fight day event during which participants put their skills to test. The meticulous training program designed by FitRepublik’s experts and internationally acclaimed coaches will help the fighters develop all aspects of the fighting game, striking(boxing, kickboxing, thaiboxing), transitions (takedowns), and ground game (BJJ/No Gi).
