Born in Melbourne, Judd Reid was invited to Japan at the age of 19, living and training under the strictest conditions for 1,000 days.
He went on to a 20-year international career in professional fighting, winning state tournaments, the Australia Championship, and becoming a world champion.
His storied career culminated with the 100-Man Fight, a legendary feat only completed by a few throughout history, documented by the film “Journey To The 100-Man Fight” and a book called The Young Lions.
Now, Reid’s biggest wish is to give back through his own training center, Chikara Martial Arts, Millburn, Australia, teaching others the lessons he’s learned to help enrich their lives.
