Chris Collard grew up in a home without love. He thought the world hated him, so he hated it back. Going in and out of juvenile detention, and eventually turning eighteen behind bars, Chris decided to turn his life around. Realising he was repeating the detrimental cycles of those around him, he moved away from his family and friends to pursue Muay Thai. Within five years he was a Muay Thai World Champion. Taking control of his future, Chris is now a loving father and husband who passes on the principles of Muay Thai to help youth learn anger management and self-respect.
