HOW I GOT STARTED
As a child growing up in Newark, New Jersey I became fascinated with martial arts through movies and friends who were able to afford the training. Being less fortunate, I would imitate the moves from watching movies and remembering how they seemed to be executed. I later started my first formal training by agreeing to clean up the school as payment for my lessons. This was my start to becoming a responsible young man. I always like to share my knowledge to help others become more confident and build character while having fun and getting in shape.
