Marcin has lived in the UK for 16 years since relocating from Poland. Back in Poland his experiences in sport included weight training and football but he felt that although those sports were quite engaging something was missing.
His first encounter with combat sports was in MMA which he did for around six months before coming to England to study for an Engineering and Mechanics bachelor’s degree. He enjoyed MMA training but after around four years of living and working in the UK he found Ultimate Boxing at the age of 29. He still continued his strength training and trained at the boxing club for a few years. By the time he hit his mid 30s it was a little late to start amateur boxing so he took part in some white collar boxing contests.
Now at age 41 his heart is still in boxing, particularly coaching. In 2022 he completed and passed the England Boxing Level 1 coaching course and with this qualification in hand he looks forward to training youngsters and will take his level 2 coaching qualification in 2023 once a full year’s coaching experience is completed.
