In his early teenage years living in the UK, Rhys really struggled to find a sport to stick with. Bouncing around from football (soccer to US) to Ju-jJtsu to rugby and more. But never really sticking with anything for more than 6 or so months and went through a period of being quite inactive and somewhat unfulfilled. That is until around 15 years old, he started practicing parkour and freerunning, then discovering this unique, underground, and underrated sport of Martial-Arts Tricking. It was everything he loved about movement.
The next few years would involve attending Tricking gatherings across the UK and Europe, taking part in battles, meeting life-long friends, travelling and having unique experiences that he would not have had without Tricking.
