About MMA Boxx
Hey there! I’m Ahmed Mir, the founder of MMA Boxx. I am originally from England but now live in beautiful Thailand.
My journey into the world of mixed martial arts (MMA) began (strangely) on a weightlifting bench. While benching lifted my ego, it was the practical strength and strategic mindset in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and Muay Thai that really flipped a switch in me.
The first eye-opening BJJ session in 2015 made me realize I wasn’t as fit as I thought. Sparking my interest in combat sports.
MMA Boxx was born out of my desire to carve out a little corner on the web for folks like me who are fascinated by the art, the strategy, and the community that surrounds MMA.
My vision is simple yet grand—I dream of nurturing MMA Boxx into the ultimate haven for anyone with a spark of interest in MMA, from someone pulling their first Kimura submission to BJJ black belts.
I’ve had a 15-year love affair with working out, and although I dipped my toes into BJJ in 2015, it was only in 2021 that I dove headfirst into both BJJ and Muay Thai.
Living in Thailand has been nothing short of a martial arts dream; the rhythm of live Muay Thai fights and the camaraderie among the BJJ community here is thrilling.
Outside of martial arts, I’m on the lookout for new adventures, enjoying asian food, pushing my limits in weightlifting, and entrepeneurship. I’ve also been mentioned in The Washington Post and Forbes.
Through MMA Boxx, I’m inviting everyone to come together, share experiences, and grow in the MMA journey. It’s not just about the fights; it’s about the stories, the learning, and the friendships forged along the way.
So, here’s an open invitation to join me and the MMA Boxx community. Let’s explore the electrifying world of MMA together, learning and growing with every jab, kick, and grapple!
