I started out in high school wrestling. From then on I know I loved one on one competitions. There is no one to blame or reward but yourself. In college, I was introduced to mixed martial arts. From my first training session I knew that it was the sport for me. With all the different disciplines to learn, I knew this was the truest form of combat sports and the realest sport to test my skills.
