"The coaches and training partners have been incredible."

"I've been a huge fan of MMA and the UFC for a good few years so when this opportunity presented itself I knew I had to take part. After seeing videos and reading testimonials from previous competitors, I knew I would get more than MMA experience from this program. I really wanted to work on building self-confidence and to push my body to new limits. "

"At the end of the summer last year, I was looking for a new hobby. Something to help with my anxiety and to take my mind off of the homesickness I was dealing with. We stumbled upon an ad for Wimp2Warrior and started watching Youtube videos and reading testimonials from previous participants. No person regretted doing it and it seemed like such a huge accomplishment. It wasn't long before I signed up for a tryout and started on the road to the new ME."

"I joined Wimp2Warrior because I’ve always been interested in having an MMA fight. It could have taken me years to be taken seriously enough to find a coach who would have helped me achieve this. I respect and have liked Champions Creed for a very long time. I knew they would have done their research and would only offer this program if it was good. As a stuntwoman, any experience in the required skill sets is a valuable asset to have. Having a more thorough knowledge of being a fighter and what that takes largely would benefit me on the job."

"I joined Wimp2Warrior to develop my self-defence skills so that I can protect my family should the need arise. I never want to feel helpless if I, or my family, were threatened."

"I would say that it is truly the opportunity of a lifetime. It tests you in so many ways and you become much better as a result, not just in your fighting skills but in all aspects of life."

"I was looking for a challenge that would take me outside my comfort zone. Helping me grow as a person physically and mentally. I'm non-confrontational, non-aggressive, and always walking away from trouble. This is beyond my comfort zone."

Wimp2Warrior started in 2012 in Australia. Billed as “The Ultimate Human Experiment,” the program helps regular people conquer mental and emotional limitations while building their warrior spirit and physique.

The program has transformed thousands of people worldwide who have never trained in martial arts before and made them “stronger, healthier and more confident.”
