From the quiet, but sometimes rough streets of Malmö in Sweden, Fredrik looked to martial arts as a way of defending himself from local gangs in the area. As he began to get deeper into the sport, he realised that his first choice of Tae Kwon Do was not for him and moved onto Kickboxing which began a long and prosperous road of success not only in his native country but also in Japan and the United States.
Fredrik and I talk about his journey and struggles through adversity to find greatness. It’s an incredible story with many chapters in various parts of the globe. His story is quite inspiring, regardless of whether you have an interest in martial arts or not!
As a bonus, we also discuss Fredrik’s love of heavy metal and his adventures meeting some of the greatest in the metal world, including his personal relationship with Dave Mustaine of Megadeth.
This is another great example of someone showing true dedication to their passion and making their dreams become a reality. Cheesy stuff to say, but it doesn’t get much realer than Fredrik!
