WHICH STYLES DO YOU DO?
Zen Do Kai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE FROM THESE STYLES/MARTIAL ARTS?
Initially, I started each style to gain more knowledge and explore what the world of martial arts has to offer. In the process, I have uncovered a lot of challenges that have made me reassess what martial arts is about. By far the mental resistance aspects of training have become my favourite part. The fight against your fears and once thought boundaries is what I love best and is why I keep coming back every night for more.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
A bit stubborn, but easygoing and adventurous. I love giving everything a go and trying my best at saying YES to new opportunities that come up in life. That’s how my martial arts journey started.
ROLE MODELS, WHO ARE YOUR INSPIRATIONS?
I’m inspired by my parents, coaches, teachers, and the people that I train with. Everyone at Chikara Martial Arts comes from all walks of life. The people that I have encountered here help and push me to keep learning, whether it’s a quick tip from time to time or a laugh at the end of the day.
ANY ADVICE TO NEW STUDENTS OR ANYONE INTERESTED IN JOINING?
If you’re initially deciding on a style that will work best for you and your goals, pick the one that you think you would enjoy the most and have fun with. Enjoyment in what you do is the most important thing.
