Once upon a time, I was 5 Time State Champ of a California. Constantly training, hitting, and being hit. I didn’t really get much time to be a kid, but If I’m being honest, it was so much better than being a kid. Fighting gave me a real dad, real brothers, and real lessons in drive, determination, goals etc. that you don’t normally see in someone that age. I think it’s about time I got back to my basics.
