Hi everyone. I have I situation that is not easy to understand or take seriously, but I want this to work more than anything. I started training ma about 15 years ago and have been a national judge in Sanshou, I have trained kung fu toa, been trying a little Kali, boxing, muay thai and mma. But I never did it for real. I never became serious enough to make anything of it. Because of one single reason. Drugs. It took everything from me. Now I am in a place in my life when I have a shot at getting completely sober. And I want to let the fighter in me help me stay strong enough to fall back, but I also want to take back some of the self respect the drugs took by give everything to see how far I can go and reach for the dream I had, but by giving it EVERYTHING I got, I will become a fighter that overcame drug addiction and had some success after the age of 34. I know I have it in me. But I wont commit to one style as I believe that my greatest strength is my uniqness and I want to learn from every style possible and become an individual on a warriors path and see qhere it takes me. I am training more and harder now than ever before. But I beg for you my fellow fighters to take me serious and tell me about your style, your ways of training, the techniques and philosophy so I can embrace the arts. I will turn into the fighter inside myself, beat the weakness inside and become. So lets be friends and inspire and teach each other..
