My first lesson was at age 9 when my older brother Wesley, who was in the military, showed me how to party. I started formal training in Renbuki Karate in 1985 in Sacramento, CA.
I trained in Renbuki under Tom Stroble in 1985. Then I trained in Taekwondo under Jennifer Phillips in 1994. Martial Arts under Professor Dominic Cirincione and Eskrima under Master Nito Noval. I started teaching martial arts in 1997. Till this day I continue to teach, train, and compete in martial arts.
I have been on the GSBA USA board since 2008 in various positions: Comptroller, Western Regional Director, and now my second term as GSBA USA National Co-Director.
