When you suffer a life threatening injury it takes an incredible toll on your mind, your body, your confidence and your will to recover.

As an athlete or fighter, to come back from a injury that leaves you bed ridden is one of the toughest things to do, especially if months before you were winning belts and dominating your opponents to victories.

The few that can come back from such tough circumstances is a testament to hard work, will and following a “ROCK SOLID” plan to recovery.

Ray Elbe, a 4X MMA Champion, UFC Ultimate Fighter 9 contestant, BJJ Black Belt and 2012 IBJJF Nogi World Championship Silver faced this exact scenario and kicked its ASS!

Ray Elbe trusted Funk-Flex Elite Strength & Conditioning above all others to help him recover, prepare and win IFBJJ World Silver Medalist (read on for why!)

After building a successful career as an BJJ, MMA, Muay Thai fighter and a pioneer in growing MMA in Malaysia (including a long stint at Tiger Muay Thai in Thailand)

Ray had just come off winning the Mortal Combat Belt in Malaysia, when his highly publicized injury had him laid up in the hospital waiting for surgery and doubting his future as a fighter.

Getting through the surgery was the beginning but now Ray faced the long road to recovery.

I am not going to lie to you, I was shocked when Ray connected to with me to see if I had any programs to help him get his strength and conditioning better than it was before.

As a trainer, my goal is to help all athletes of all levels to get in the best shape of their lives. I take passion and pride in that mission.

So when Ray trusted me to help him, I jumped at the opportunity to help him.

Ray and I had a history, back when I travelled to Tiger Muay Thai in 2010, he took care of me and made sure my stay and training was top notch.

As you can see in the picture above, not only did Ray recover, but he came back in the best fight shape of his life on way to IFBJJ World Silver Medalist (No Go Jui Jitsu).

He used the Funk-Flex Elite Strength and Conditioning for Combat Athletes to help him get into killer shape.

Think about Ray could have gone anywhere, to anyone, but he used our program to help him.

I am so proud of Ray and his comeback and also what he is doing now as he travels the world to help create and build Combat sports in different countries. A true World Ambassador of the sport.
