I grew up a long time fan of Professional wrestling, watching the WWF whenever I could with my older cousin. When I was 4 I started training in martial arts. Beginning in Shotokan Karate, and then transitioning into Taekwondo when I was about 8. At age 13 I started wrestling, and around the same time a cousin of mine (different from the aforementioned one), began training in Mixed Martial Arts. One day I went with him to him martial arts school and, WHAM! I was hooked. I started my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training the very next day and quickly discovered I loved Mixed Martial Arts. Since then I've made it my focus to become as well rounded a martial artist as possible, having trained in Karate, Boxing, Muay Thai, American Kickboxing, Taekwondo, Wrestling (Freestyle and Grecco-Roman), Judo, Sambo, Nihon Goshin Aikido, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Krav Maga. Always looking for new techniques, styles, and opinions, I still train to better myself as a martial artist and as a person.
