John Wayne Parr has taken up axe fighting! After over 100 Muay Thai and kickboxing fights the 45 year old has decided to try out a more traditional combat sport.

He shared the footage of the medieval style axe fight on his Instagram just now:

As you can see JWP elected to eschew the axe and turn it into more of a Muay Thai fight, although admittedly you don’t normally see suits of armour worn during those. He picked up yet another cut for his collection, although this time it was his finger that was damaged.

It is good to see that the veteran has recovered from a nasty bout of Covid-19. The fact that he decided to don a suit of armour and test himself against an opponent armed with an axe suggests he is probably feeling his normal self again!
