Palace de Nelson

I'm a huge fan of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), Submission Wrestling, UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and, hence, Gunnar Nelson. It all started when I watched him by chance fight Alexander Butenko back in February 2012. Since then I've followed his progress closely and began being interested in submission wrestling.

So this January I took a chance and signed up for a beginner course in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the Mjölnir fight club (Mjölnir) and I absolutely do not regret the decision. It's real hard, real technical and feeds you bruises. I must admit I'm far from being good but the fact is I like a good uphill battle.

The legal status of fighting sports in Iceland is grim. Competitions in boxing (and all other fighting sports) are strictly forbidden although an exception was maade for olympic boxing some years back.

But Gunnar Nelson fights on, being named as a possible UFC champion in the coming years. The voice of reason is also becoming louder in Iceland. The ban on competitions in fighting sports may very well pass us in the coming years.

Contact me if you want more info on where to drop in for training.

Be it MMA, Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Cross Fit or Ping Pong. I know shit.
