Nico Carrillo is a British kickboxer who is the current ISKA (International Sport Karate Association) Muay Thai World 65 kg Champion.
My friend who I regularly played football with to a Thai boxing class and then said to me I should come, I went and fell in love instantly, never looked back.
I became a world champion this year from only being in the sport 8 years, and then beat a Thai legend who I use to watch when I was in high school when I only started training.
I could go on and on as it has my heart, but a good aspect of it is that it teaches you about respect and integrity, why I would always push for kids to start
I want to be the greatest fighter to ever come out of Scotland, I want to leave a legacy, for years to come kids not in my lifetime will be talking about my achievements and what I have done for my country
Hard work beats talent, if you aren’t willing to lose sleep for it, you’re in the wrong game, as you don’t play fighting, it’s also important to have the right people around you, be around like-minded people who love sports and competing and not the other stuff
To be honest I could be a professional athlete in many other sports I believe because of my mindset. Running, boxing, MMA just a few of the top of my head.
My perfect weekend is after a very hard Saturday morning session, go a long drive with my fiancé and my dog and get out to fun places for lovely hikes, walks etc.
I feel a massive boost when I drink Beet It Sport the night before training – it feels like my endurance is enhanced.
I’m glad I found out about you guys, it’s a sure part of my training supplements now
