Martial arts backgroundEdit
Chris began his martial arts training at the age of nine under Sensei Raymond Cooper, a retired Lieutenant in the United States Navy and received his black belt in Dux-Ryu Ninjutsu at seventeen. During his subsequent years of training, Chris received black belts in Taijutsu and Koppojutsu and trained privately from 1996 to 1998 in American Kickboxing with “The Iceman” Jean-Yves Thériault, 23-time world kickboxing champion.
In 1998, Myra began teaching unarmed combat in the Canadian Forces and upon deployment to Bosnia in 2000 was given the task of Operational Personnel In Command (OPI), Unarmed Combat for Camp Drvar. In 2005, Chris trained in the Fierce Israeli Guerilla Hand-to-hand Tactics (F.I.G.H.T) system, successfully obtaining certification as a level two Haganah instructor in the Haganah advanced compat system which encompasses both Krav Maga and Hisardut and was qualifided as a Close Quarters Combat instructor at the United States Army Ranger School.

Dux and became the first Canadian to be certified as a FASST (Focus-Action-Skill-Strategy-Tactics) / Dux-Ryu Instructor by Shihan Sky Benson.

Mixed Martial Arts CareerEdit
During his years of travel and training and prior to his professional MMA debut, Myra fought in countless "amateur" and underground fights. King of the Cage offered him a professional debut in 2007, but it was his an easy victory over Robin Black in 2008 which gave him real notoriety. Black's training leading up to the fight was televised on MuchMusic and the televised event was therefore highly publicized. Chris defeated Black in the second round by Triangle Choke in his post fight interview Chris commented that Robin was the nicest smelling person he ever caught with a triangle.
