He changed the way he viewed martial arts and ignited a journey of discovery, competing in many full contact tournaments while developing his skills and knowledge.
After taking on Australian Champion Rob Hill in an MMA bout early in his career, Adam’s training took him to Japan, where he fought in the Submission Arts Wrestling competition and in MMA bouts.As part of his constant pursuit of perfection, Adam also started to train in other styles, learning and competing in kickboxing, Jute Kung Fu and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
