I began training Martial Arts in 2004, and started my journey with MKG in 2007. The founder of MKG International, Rick Faye, welcomed me into the instructor circle in 2013. In 2016, I became a certified Muay Thai Instructor under the infamous Ajarn Chai Sirisute of the World Thai Boxing Association. Following my Boxing career, where I became a Super Welterweight Belt holder as an amateur champion in the WBC, in 2019 I also became a certified Savate instructor under Professor Salem Assli of the California Association of Boxe Francaise Savate. Bouncing at night clubs reformed my understanding of combat, but was short lived due to the COVID 19 pandemic. This new life challenge yielded many fruitful experiences and opportunities that helped me redefine what it means to me to be called coach. I reached out to a contact and who welcomed me on the team serving our communities as a armed private security agent. After passing range qualifications for the Glock 23 with the Criminal Justice Training Commission of Washington State, I was granted opportunity to work for clients such as Formula Drift, PAX and Alavara Hawk Tower. In January 2022, I passed my personal trainer exam with the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
