Inspiring & motivating
30 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

When I heard that this movie was coming out I was very excited to get the full story of an Australian Muay Thai Fighter. After the movie had finished I was even more excited to find that JWP was a regular guy who followed a dream. JWP and those who believed in him were so inspiring and moving. Dreams can be achieved, JWP's determination was exhilarating. It was wonderful to be able to ask questions after the movie. What a humble and down to earth person JWP is, that was truly refreshing! Thank you JWP for sharing your story. If Muay Thai interests you, then check out "Blessed with Venom". It is great to see an Aussie surviving and succeeding in a sport from a different culture. JWP I love your work.
