ComboSword and Shield
Sponge started out in Dallas, Texas before venturing to Denver, Colorado. He has always been interested in fighting and always had been largely self-taught but never taking it very seriously. In 2006, he moved to Austin, Texas which quickly sparked an interest in foam fighting at a high level. It was this interest that caused a change in approach to fighting. Instead of largely relying on hand speed and reaction speed, Sponge started to approach fighting by planning and pre-gaming fights. In doing so, it caused a giant leap in his game and a deep interest in the approaches taken towards fighting and the cause and reactions during fights.
