A 13-Year-Old Georges St Pierre Training Karate
A very young Georges St-Pierre, it might be added, with hair. Training in Kyokushin Karate at the age of 13. Most fans of GSP are familiar with his customary atire as he entered the octagon. Sporting his trademark headband along with his Karate Gi. The hardcore fans of St Pierre were on display at the UFC 217 pre-fight press conference. where stood a lineup of lookalikes, all donning the same karate apparel as their hero.
Georges, of course, made a successful return to form after a 4-year stint away from the sport. Moving up a division and defeating Michael Bisping to win the UFC middleweight title. But what we see here is him as a teenager doing his thing in martial arts. This was the bedrock in his growth which got him to where he is today in the sport of MMA.
