James Moontasri began training in Tae Kwon Do at 8 years old and transitioned into MMA when he was 19. He got the nickname "Moonwalker" because of his fast kicks and the fact that he also likes Michael Jackson. He holds a black belt in Muay Thai and is a 4th Dan black belt in Tae Kwon Do. He is a Two-time USA Tae Kwon Do National Champion as well as 2007 Pan Am Games Silver medalist.
