Poison drummer Rikki Rockett talks MMA and life as a black belt

Tweet

When he was selling out stadiums in the 1980's and early 90's Poison drummer Rikki Rockett wasn't even thinking about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. After a life threatening situation where a knife was put against his throat Rikki decided that he wanted to learn how to better defend himself.  Rockett started training and learned Jiu Jitsu under coach Renato Magno and 12 years later between hard training and tours Rockett earned his black belt.

Rockett is 50 years young but still plans on competing.  To say that he is busy is an understatement.  Rockett is a dad, a husband, runs a custom drum company called "Rockett's Drum Works", and oh yea, he tours once a summer with Poison.  The band recently wraped up a tour with Motley Crew, a tour that was very succesful I might add.  Rikki sat down with 8CN and shared his thoughts on the future of Poison, and his career in mixed martial arts.
