Life is strange in your direction of travel is constantly in a state of flux via the choices you make. Only being forty-seven years old; I have traveled the World from the States all the way to Australia & back again. I was born on May 12th 1970. Due to extreme complicated details I was raised by my grandparents from my mother's side of family, & I reunited with her many years later for the bond that was always missing from my life. During all this time I had many struggles in life: Health, social, & anger. I was then introduced into the Martial arts by my uncle, & it has become my way of life ever since. Presently I hold the rank of Kyoshi professor in the Martial Science in my discipline of Taikyokuken Ken Sho Ryu. This is also known as a 7th Dan in the arts. I have traveled the World being selected in 1999 to the United States Marital Arts' Team; where I represented our country without defeat until my departure from this great honor in 2005.
