Bio

Best known as the originator of the Kipping Squat, Darren was born into a family of Samurai Warriors. After years of protecting his village against ninjas, he left home upon receiving an invitation to the Kumite: the most prestigious fighting tournament in the world. This was an opportunity of a lifetime, as he had spent his entire life dreaming about winning the Kumite, just like his idol: Frank Dux. In the championship match, Darren's opponent threw powder into his eyeballs, blinding him. But Darren was able to pull from his training of catching Koi fish with his bare hands while blindfolded, and ultimately became the Kumite champion. Today, Darren actively represents Athletes Against Breathing Hard and Elevating Their Heart Rate (AABHAETHR), is an advocate of Low Output Friday's, and stricly follows the Carrido Diet.
