Growing up I played most team sports including football, basketball, baseball, soccer, and even a couple of years of hockey. Started training in Muay Thai in 2005. I honed my striking skills by competing with smokers and diligent training under a former professional kung fu and Muay Thai competitor. I've also trained in all aspects of MMA; Brazilian jiu-jitsu, sambo, judo, submission wrestling, and Greco-Roman wrestling. In 2012 is when I started to teach others.
My turning point to decide to pursue martial arts was after high school in my early 20s. I was spinning my wheels working jobs that I didn't like and just decided to take my training more seriously. It's given me direction and confidence to pursue other interests in my life as well.
I love coaching. Being able to pass knowledge to someone else and knowing that no one can take that away from them is what I do it for. Whether or not a student completes or even sticks with martial arts is not as important to me as the way martial arts can benefit just about every part of their lives.
