Hi everyone. I'm new here. My Martial Arts started when I was a freshman in high school. I took Wu Shu kungfu in a small town in Lake Jackson Tx. Do to some unfortunate events I had to stop. I took one semester of Karate at Alvin Community college as an elective. Then I moved to Knoxville TN. I started Taekwondo in the Kumdo system. As I was training for national competition, I had a massive heart attack. I was a blue belt at the time. This was March 29th of 2000. Fast forward 8 years. Dec. 24th of 2008 I had a heart transplant... Yes, a heart transplant... In July of 2010 having moved back to TX. I started learning ITF Taekwondo. Now I am a 2nd degree preparing for my 3rd degree.
