Fernando Vega - Elite-MMA Instructor

Nando

Fernando Vega Jr.

33 years old.

I joined EliteMMA in December of 2013

I started taking Martial arts because my brother Julian Vega showed me the what being truly helpless felt like and I never want to experience that again.

In the past I took Karate as a kid but I never took it serious.

I practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Kick Boxing.

The only concern I had about going Elite was that I want going to have time to workout after a 12 hour rotating shift but I love trying so much that I look forward to getting out of work or waking up early to train.

Since Joining EliteMMA I have reached the rank of brown belt, I have won a gold medal as a purple belt and I have competed and won in 1 MMA fight.
