New Hampshire’s Tom Moreau is plenty accomplished as a mixed martial artist.
His staggering multi-faceted attack, honed by 13 years of competitive judo and study of jiu-jitsu, boxing and Muay Thai, has earned him a reputation as one of New England’s best 170-pound fighters.
“It’s not a one-dimensional sport,” said Moreau, who’s on World Championship Fighting’s Feb. 26 card in Wilmington. “If they have one strength … I’m finding it and beating them all night.”
He usually does, with a 4-0 record (one no contest) in five pro bouts.
Wins aside, though, Moreau’s best memories have been watching his son find enthusiasm for martial arts.
Now 7, Tom Jr. finished second at judo junior nationals in 2008 — with a proud father looking on.
Tom Jr. follows all of his father’s fights, waiting up for him after late contests. Before his June bout against Don Carlos Clauss, Moreau gave Tom Jr. a look at match day preparation.
“He actually got up in the ring,” Moreau said. “He was so excited to be up there … moving around. It was great.”
