Welcome to my world of martial arts!

I’m excited to connect with you and share my experiences and discoveries as we delve into the captivating realm of combat sports, self-defense, and personal growth. My own martial arts journey has been a lifelong adventure, filled with diverse disciplines, memorable moments, and a deep passion for the art of combat.

It all started when I was a young child, standing beside my father, who introduced me to the captivating world of martial arts. Shotokan karate became our shared language, and for 12 years, we immersed ourselves in the teachings, traditions, and rigorous training that karate had to offer. This early foundation taught me invaluable lessons about discipline, respect, and the power of perseverance. At the age of 14, I proudly earned my black belt, marking a significant milestone in my martial arts journey.

In my twenties, a new chapter unfolded as I discovered the sport of boxing. Drawn to the sweet science, I laced up my gloves and stepped into the ring, competing at the amateur level. The thrill of battle, the precision of technique, and the camaraderie amongst fellow boxers fueled my passion for the sport. It was during this time that I also discovered my calling as an assistant coach, sharing my knowledge and guiding aspiring fighters towards their goals.

As life unfolded and the world faced the challenges of COVID, I sought new avenues to expand my martial arts repertoire. Enter Arnis, a Filipino Martial Art known for its fluid movements, use of weapons m and practical self-defense techniques. This dynamic discipline ignited a fire within me, connecting me to my rich history and cultural heritage of the Philippines. Through Arnis, I discovered the beauty of weapon-based martial arts, honing my coordination and enhancing my understanding of combat dynamics.

More recently, I’ve embarked on a thrilling journey that encompasses the art of Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). Muay Thai, with its fierce strikes and dynamic techniques, has tested my endurance and challenged me both physically and mentally. BJJ, on the other hand, has taken me into the world of grappling, leverage, and submission holds, where technique and strategy reign supreme. These disciplines have allowed me to delve deeper into the intricate world of combat sports, expanding my skill set and broadening my horizons.

Now, as a parent myself, I recognize the significance of guiding and supporting young martial artists on their own paths. In this blog, I’ll be sharing my insights, experiences, and tips for parents of budding martial artists. From finding the right martial arts gym to fostering discipline and resilience in your child’s journey, I’ll be your companion on this exciting path.

So, join me on this exhilarating adventure as we explore the transformative power of martial arts, unravel the nuances of BJJ, and navigate the world of combat sports. Whether you’re a parent seeking guidance or an aspiring martial artist yourself, together we’ll embrace the challenges, celebrate the victories, and uncover the endless possibilities that martial arts has to offer.
