How important is a clear mindset for you?

Mindset plays a major role in every sport and in every situation. In martial arts, however, it plays an even more important role. Every mistake is punished really hard and can also cost you victory or more. That’s why you have to be physically (a requirement) but also mentally up to the task in order to get into the ring competitively.

The success. To be at the top and to be better than the others.

Once you lose your focus, how do you regain it?

What goals do you still have?

Become a European Champion and get a big World Championship fight.
