The first 'MMA' in the UK?
Was this the first MMA in the UK, it's certainly interesting. It's something to throw at detractors as well. He also pioneered women's self defence.
I seen that before. Interesting how a there's a martial art directly from UK. First MMA? I doubt it! MMA's always been around, back when Celtic tribes were beating up the romans and cutting their heads off 2000 years ago *WIARG!*
Prince of Bel-Air
That's what I mean, but back then they were all one and the same. I'm currently fascinated by such tribes which fought the romans, as the Iceni. Funnily enough their homeground was Thetford (where I've been working), n I've been intrigued as to why there's loads of businesses that have Iceni in their name. But yeah, At the moment I've been reading about Boudica, the warrior queen, even bought the DVD of the ITV series the other day, with Alex Kingston (was pretty cool!). Maybe you could say she was the very first mixed martial artist! lol!!
Bit of a shock for the Romans who didn't believe in women's rights ( don't believe anything in the tv series Rome lol) to be beaten by a female warrior!
