David Wilson’s Interview – Crossing Over from Boxing to Shin Do Kumate
What attracted David Wilson to Muay Thai?
David Wilson – As a Teen, I was a Dragon Ball Z Fanatic. I was involved in track and football since middle school, but never really considered any fighting sports. After excelling in both track and football, I also thought how well would I do in combat. I considered MMA, but thought it may be a little difficult due to grappling. I wondered If I had the skills to protect my self within a combative scenario. I tried a boxing class in Tallahassee Florida and enjoyed it.
