Personal History:

Alain started learning Judo at the age of six, following in the footsteps of his brothers. He started showing his exceptional abilities early by winning back-to-back junior tournaments in Cameroon and later all over Africa. His first step was really influenced by his mother, who had a love for the sport and wanted her boys to learn discipline yet to focus their energy positively. Since then, Alain successively learnt Judo (Black-belt), Shotokan Karate, Koshiki Karate, Kyokushin Karate, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, French Boxing (Savate), Full Contact Kickboxing and, last but not least, Muay Thai. Alain was a former bodyguard of VIP's and high profile personalities in the Ivory Coast before immigrating to Hong Kong. He is famous for his brutal training regimen which is explosive and intense (check YouTube). With a huge fan base not only in Hong Kong but throughout the world, Alain is known as one of the fastest heavyweight fighters weighing at 102KG. His trademark move is the Panther Low Kick with his fights (always exciting to watch) usually ending with brutal knockouts. Michael McDonald, Carter Williams and Bob 'The Beast' Sapp have all had a taste of what Alain 'The Panther' Ngalani has to give.

Personal History:

Fighting at 54kg, Rein is the lightest of the team. With his friendly, affable nature, and his relatively small frame, he could be likened to a David among the Goliaths: the epitome of the underdog. Drawing from his initial training experience as one of the first BJJ practitioners in Hong Kong, he believes in the philosophy of technique over brute strength; brains over brawn, skill vs. power.

Always trying to challenge himself, he has since then trained in other martial arts, having competition experience across the board; he's represented Hong Kong in the Taiwan National BJJ Tournament in 2004 garnering an impressive submission win in the absolute weight division against a more experienced, heavier opponent, as well as victories in amateur and pro fights in Muay Thai, kickboxing and MMA.
