London, Aug 28, Former glamour model Katie Price’s husband cage-fighter Alex Reid is taking lessons in Islam.
Reid is currently working on a project to help get underprivileged children involved in kickboxing, and is learning about the lives of Muslim communities and their religion at the same time.
“I’ve been volunteering for a scheme to get underprivileged kids into kickboxing. We visit communities and try to get the kids to integrate more through the coaching sessions,” contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.
“The guy who runs it is Muslim, as are a lot of the kids, and it has really taught me how good the religion is – Islam is about being peaceful,” he added.
Reid decided to study the religion to help him become a better “role model” for youngsters.
He added: “I am seen as a role model to the kids, and can teach them morals as well as fighting skills.”
