If you could look back 5, 10, or even 20 years, can you remember an incident that changed the course of your life forever?
I can. It was on September 11, 2001. Obviously everyone’s life changed that day. What happened in the following 6 months afterward, was where I made a choice to follow my passion and make it a career.
The video below was on episode 1 of My Diet is Better Than Yours on ABC, and also featured on People.com as an Exclusive Video and explains my backstory. It’s the story of how I chose my path of teaching martial arts so I could share the emotional, physical and spiritual benefits that I was gaining from my practice. The school where it all happened for me is called World Martial Arts Center (now located in Brooklyn, NY) and I started as a lowly white belt with zero experience and left as a 3rd degree black belt in Hapkido, before i moved to Los Angeles in 2009.
Fast forward and here we are…
