DING! The bell rings as two contenders face each other in a heated competitive brawl to prove who is the strongest and most skilled in order to win. MMA fighters have a tough job. You are continuously training, fighting, pushing yourself to the highest mark, testing yourselves and your opponent. Many other professionals or artists don’t have such a strenuous career. You never see master photographer Peter Lik fighting for victory unless he’s fighting with the zipper to close his camera bag.
Like photography, however, MMA takes years of training and conditioning your skills, learning the techniques and making some yourself to fit your style. Every professional is going to take hard work, practice and years of time doing the same thing. Wash, rinse, repeat. Try, fail, adjust.
