Perry is a multiple time Provincial Muay Thai kickboxing champion who has trained in combat sports for his entire adult life. Through travelling and teaching classes at gyms in Asia and South America, Perry has seen the potential for organized combat sports to unite communities and engage youth. Perry began volunteering with MJKO in 2019 after a friend heard Miranda Kamal on a CBC radio interview and told him about it.
Outside of the ring, Perry works as a lawyer. He has previously volunteered as a Big Brother and dog foster parent.
