The dream to be a profesional martial artist didnt start since I ws a kid. It just started during my teenage years. My dad always tried his best nurture my talents. He sent me art class, piano lessons and asked me involve in sports as much as I can. The passion for sports was always there. Swimming, Jogging, Football, Basketball, Badminton, Skateboarding, Chess and any other sport I can get my hands on, my dad was there to support it. I really love him for that makes him something different from some other fathers. Even until now, he calls me and asked wether I have gone jogging or to the gym recently, or have I invloved myself in some activity. One day in 2001, my family attended a wedding which my passion was born. Me and my dad saw a group practising Tae Kwon-Do (TKD). My dad always wanted me to enter Karate or some other martial art. I was too interested to try a new sport. "Do you want to go?" that's the first thing he ask me when he saw me lookin at them. Without any hesitation, I said "Yes"
That wat got me into here. Everyday I went to training, I never regretted any moment of it. I wanted to be stronger. So all the pain form stepping the hard and rough terrain kept me motivated rather then making me give up. Sad part is, eventhough I loved my training the centre I was training in didnt really focus on the art of Tae Kwon Do. Being flexible and learning the accurate steps are not really important. As long as one can fight match and win, he is considered great. A common thing u can find in many Malaysian Tae Kwon Do (MTF) centres. Dz is also why GTF and ITF are better... this is oso why MTF didnt progress any much further in WTF (Not Wat The Fuck, but World Tae Kwon Do Federation)
When the time came for me to become I black Belt, (when I was 15), I felt unprepared and skipped it. Then I took 2 years break since I had to prepare for my SPM examination. After my SPM, I joined a new club. the training was good but still didnt concentrate on flexibility. Making me not so flexible. I trained as much as could finding time when I can. During this period was when I saw Boyka in Undisputed 2 and got really hooked into martial arts. I wanted to be much more like him. To be a champion in wat I love... Fighting! So I got my blackbelt coz I ws fed up seeing my juniors are higher ranked then me although they are not up ta a black belt standard. Grades in MTF are like beeing bought. After my STPM I bought a punching bag. Me and Suresh (My training buddy) filled it with sawdust. It was really a hardcore bag. Hard and painful. I modified a little space in my outdoors to a mini training gym... puttin all my gym and training equipments there. I trained every single day when I was free alongside with suresh, not only TKD, but also Kickboxing, Muay Thai and some ju-jitsu moves. It was around 8 months since January to August. My training slowed down when Suresh had to leave to his Police recruitment. I cant really concentrate on my flexibility alone either. And then I also got busy with finding a place to further my degree... so till then to now, my martial art passion was on hold, but I am startin slowly now. Jogging and involving in sports to get back into shape and going to gym to get a good figure. I need train on flexibility and agility but dun really how to do it alone. Alicia asked me to join Ballet, as she was teachin. Ballet involve lots of strentgh, agility and flexibility... I am considering it, although my macho manhood is in jeopardy, it gets me closer to my dream.... laugh all u want... I shall bear it to reach my dream.... TO BECOME YURI BOYKA...
The first movie I saw Scott in was Undisputed 2 and intermediately I was amazed to see his agility, talent, flexibility and talent. Dz guy would be one of the best martial artist I have ever seen. He became my Idol ever since. Although my short term Idol is Bernard Radin, Scott is someone I want to be in my peak of martial arts training. Not only he has a great martial art talent, he also has a tall and muscular body which is flexible and agile. A very hard task and it was like watching street fighter RYU in live. In an interview I read about Scott said that he didn't go for muscle building workout. So it means all that awesome body was built by pure hardcore training! Wat the Hell? I true fighting machine, dats my why he is my idol...
Some of Scotts awesome videos:

Scott in his latest movie- Ninja:
Scott Adkins was born in Sutton Coldfield,
His first break came when he was offered a role in a Hong Kong martial arts film called Dei seung chui keung (2001) (aka Extreme Challenge). Spotted by Head of The Hong Kong Stuntmen Association and director Wei Tung and English-born
Starring roles in feature films soon followed with his portrayal of Talbot in Special Forces (2003) (V) and Yuri Boyka" in Undisputed II: Last Man Standing (2006). It was this film that broke him into the mainstream with his villainous portrayal of a Russian MMA underground fighter Boyka in what has been hailed as one of the best American made Martial Arts films of recent times. Along with lead actor Michael Jai White, fight coordinator J.J. Perry and the slick direction of Isaac Florentine this movie has some unbelievably heart stopping fight scenes. After this Scott has had guest starring roles in bigger budget films like The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) and The Tournament (2009), and played 'Jean Claude Van Damme''s main adversary in Sony Pictures The Shepherd: Border Patrol (2008).
Recently, he played "Weapon XI" in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009).
Sott in his most famous role... as the badass Boyka. This is one kickass movie dat all action lovers must watch.
See dat flower tattoo? I want get dat on my shoulders as well to remind me everytime I stand in front of mirror about Boyka.... I man I want to be like.
Scott kickin Jean Claude Van Damn's ass in "The Sheperd"
Reaching The Goal:
The killer sport which is only for those can take real pain. I love this sport becoz of the pain it self. It has the deadliest kicks and attacks, using elbows and knees. Although the technic dun vary much as TKD, muay thai is simply loveable to all martial artist. I remember when I went learn wushu, the master actually asked me take Muay Thai instead as it concentrates less on flexibility... Lol. What a shame.
The Destination : Bangkok, Thailand
The Birth place of Muay Thai, Thailand. That is where I want to go when I am 24 or 25 to train Muay Thai. I want to spend 6 months there to train Muay Thai daily and comeback to Malaysia. Saving money already for the training. hahahaha. But before that I want to train kickboxing or muay thai under one of the most dangerous martial artist in Malaysia and also my idol, Bernard Radin. His training centre is in Tambun and Im in Kampar. With a current bike it would be hard for me to travel dat far, so Im planning to shift bike with my dad, bring down his chopper and use it to travel weekly for training. But to brng the chopper I need good results. I screwed my 1st sem, So I gotta make it in dz!
The awesome sghts in Thailand I want to enjoy ^^:
Phi Phi Island:
Tae Kwon- Do
The 1st ever martial art I've learned and fell in love with. Tae Kwon-Do may not look like it but it is one of the deadliest martial. Combining speed, agility, power, flexibility and perfection, it is hard to avoid when attacked. Masterin this to a ciplak level alone made me feel like the world is slow specially when in street fights. Imagine how fast the perfectly trained TKD fighters would be. TKD had the strongest kick, n fastest reaction compared to other arts. Not a child's play. Two types TKD exist now internationally. ITF and WTF. Both are from the same founder but one was from south korea (WTF) and the other was north. ITF focuses more on arts n has little armor compared to WTF. but both are as deadly if mastered.
The Land I want to live in.... Canada. I didnt choose Korea coz I cant speak Korean n I thnk I will survive better here then there. I want to train here for at least 4 months when I am 28 or 29. If possible settle down here and start a family.... Canada is known for is well known for its natural habitat as well as its great TKD fighters. A place I want to be... and also train Ai Ki do when Im old.... XD
