Hi there! I’m Austin, martial artist, editor & owner of the Mixed Martial Arts Life or Lifestyle (MMAL) blog. Martial Arts have been one of my biggest passions since I was 13 years old because I became obsessed with the amount science there is when it comes to self-defence & health benefits behind it. 

Ever since I became obsessed, I have spent most of my life learning different types of disciplines over the years. To find out more about my adventures & passion for martial arts, read all about it here on my blog.
