Christian is the son of a master Tae Kwon Do instructor/competitor who instilled a love of the martial arts in his son. Christian began his training at the age of 5, and has gotten to travel the world in the pursuit of martial arts. He's built an impressive list of tournament wins over the years but kept away from overexposure. He never stayed in one place too long, being homeschooled instead as he travelled with his parents. Christian was married at the age of 25 to a Japanese woman who was daughter to his Shotokan master. Bringing her to the United States, the two had a daughter together. However his obsession with the martial arts and improvement drove a wedge between the two of them.
She divorced him, and took their daughter. Christian who was already facing hard times, was dealt a harsher blow when he shot and killed a man in self defense. It was proven as self defense, but the weapon he used wasn't registered and so he spent 2 years in prison before recently being released. His criminal record has hurt his chances of getting a job, and so now he's set on entering the illegal fight circuit to support himself and to pay Alimony and Child Support. He also hopes to eventually reclaim his daughter, and to improve as a combatant. *Fighting Style(s):

Judo-4 years, off and on. Studied from 24-28. He learned the basics in Japan, but studied more expensively upon returning to America after his marriage and before his incarceration.*Fighting Personality:
Highly aggressive & focused, he studies an opponent and adapts accordingly. There is nothing flashy about his style, and he aims to finish fights without putting on a show about it.*Strengths:
Very hard striking power, a very high tolerance for pain, surprising speed and reflexes for his size, excellent flexibility, high level of conditioning and adaptability. He's been fighting most of his life, and the only ones who stand a chance against him are true martial artists. *Weaknesses:
Grappling, he is competent in it but not a master. While Christian is capable of making opponents submit and escaping submissions. Highly experienced submission artists and wrestlers can provide problems for him if they get him on the ground. His only two losses in any form of competition were due to submissions. He also is only defensive in counterattacking. Defense based styles like Aikido aren't of any interest to him, and he's not as patient as a lot of highly experienced fighters.*Philosophy on Fighting:
To defeat his opponent at all costs, and to increase his strength accordingly.
