From the unforgiving waters of the 50-meter long swimming pool, Singapore’s only Olympic gold medalist Joseph Schooling has brought his exquisite sporting talent to a mixed martial arts (MMA) cage. ** **
Schooling was the main highlight of an MMA seminar spearheaded by ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion “Unstoppable” Angela Lee and younger brother Christian on Thursday, November 24, at the Evolve MMA Gym in Far East Square.
Schooling, who primarily came home to Singapore to be part of the Singapore Swimming Association’s golf charity event this past Tuesday — an event which raised $525,100 in support of the group — had an MMA crash course with the Lee siblings as he was taught the basics of the world’s fastest-growing sport.
Christian and Angela imparted to Schooling some basic MMA techniques as the swimming prodigy engaged in a number of striking and grappling drills, including how to throw punches and kicks in the proper form, and even how to latch on a rear naked choke.
