Name:  Christoffer Zamorano

Status: Study Group -  Gothenburg, Sweden

Background: I have trained different martial arts now and then since I was in 3rd grade. Started with Karate and continued with Taekwondo for about 6 years. I was a TKD competitor the last year. The last 5 years I've been putting my time training ICCS Krav Maga and Muay Thai. November 2017 I attended at my first UC seminar and I loved it right away! From my early school years through my teenage Ive been involved in a lot of fighting. It started when older guys in school wanted to test me because of my martial arts training and also because of my South American background. I then grew up involved around and in criminality and the violence that comes with it. I have experienced multiple opponents, weapons, assaults and a lot of the stuff we're training on to spot and avoid today. UC really makes sense and are up to date when you want to learn true self protection. 

Study group is not public for now. 

Training is 90-120 minutes one day per week.
