My main background before taking up MMA was Judo, where I represented Russia on a number of occasions, and Sambo, where I became a Master of Sport. I have also studied Brazillian Ju-Jitsu and Kick-Boxing.
I became a Professional MMA fighter and remain undefeated after 10 contests, fighting at Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight, and picking up numerous Titles. I have also tried my hand at Boxing recently, competing on the Queensbury League.
I have been coaching clients and taking classes at the Club and in my own practice (Roman Ship MMA) for over 10 years now, from people who are interested in Combat Sports, to those just looking to lose weight and improve their general fitness. I have had 48 professional fights and have held the British and Commonwealth Heavyweight Titles, winning a Lonsdale belt outright by winning three British Title Fights.
