RUDI MENDES

Why did you start practicing kickboxing?

My dad. At the time my dad practiced and took me to try it. After that I kept doing it to this day. Today what fascinates me the most in kickboxing it’s the fact that it’s a very complete sport that helps people not only in a physical level but also at a psychological level. Contrary to what most people may think, combat is just like chess, you have to be intelligent and try to make the opponent make mistakes.
