Alan Pond I've been involved with the Martial Arts Industry for over 34yrs & am one of the most experienced Full Contact Martial Artists in Australia. I'm the State Rep for ISKA WA. The International Sport Kickboxing Assoc. You'll see me regularly Refereeing & Judging, or cornering Fighters in both Amateur & Professional Boxing, Kickboxing & Muay Thai bouts here in Perth WA. I also conduct training seminars for Officials at MMA UFC.
After starting Boxing & Kung Fu training at 16yrs of age, I got hooked & soon made a life-changing decision. To make Martial Arts my life & be the best I can be. I've gained invaluable life experience in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Philippines & Thailand as a Student, a Fighter, a Coach, Judge & Referee in Boxing & Martial Arts. This provided opportunities to train, coach, compete & officiate with some of the best Full Contact Fighters in the world.
I've been fortunate to have achieved many personal milestones in Full Contact Combat Sports including;-
Silver Medal WA State Ametuer Boxing Champs 1992
Gold Medal WA State Amateur Boxing Champs 1993

Although Martial Arts & Full Contact Fighting are my forte, I hold a passion to help others improve themselves. Martial Arts & Fitness training is an excellent pathway to benefit the mind, body & soul. I'm always keen to assist people wanting to improve their confidence, body image, overall fitness & well-being. I thoroughly enjoy helping others to achieve their goals & be the best they can be. That's how I get my kicks.
