Six years and hundreds of hours later I had my black belt, but needed a new challenge. That's when I started practicing Wushu and Chinese Kickboxing. Because I learned good basics in Kung Fu, I was able to make a smoother—although not easier—transition to Wushu.

After finding kettlebells and training with them myself, I realized how much I absolutely loved it and wanted to get RKC Certified. Because I was working with a lot of women at the salon, and had many clients who had known me for years, they noticed my body changing and asked me what I was doing.
The best thing I learned for myself was how to do the kettlebell movements correctly—that and how to set up my workout routines. But, in general, after my professional fighting career is over, I’ll have something else I can teach.
I really came to the PCC for my own knowledge. I turned 40 last September, and the previous year I decided my goal was to do 10 muscle-ups before I really had any idea on how to do them! I watched some videos online and thought that because I could do a lot of pull-ups that I'd be able to do a muscle-up.
I got really obsessed with bodyweight training and the progressions and regressions Al has for everything. At first, even though I’d look at an advanced exercise and think, “Oh my god, I can’t do that one yet,” I could do the regressions that came before it.

I’ve lifted weights for almost my whole life. I was heavily influenced by my dad—an avid weightlifter. I can remember watching him pump iron when I was a kid.
Growing up, my older brother and I would watch Bruce Lee and kung-fu movies. And I was always jumping off the couch, emulating them! I started learning karate and gymnastics at around age six.
