I was born in Augusta, Georgia on January 29th 1998 putting me at 16 years old at the time of writing this. I received my Cho Dan Black Belt on May 11th, 2013.  I have about 6 years invested into Tang Soo Do (even though one of them was spent off the mat).  My martial artist career all began on the 25th of August in 2008.  Of course, being about 10 years old at the time, I had been begging my parents to put me into a martial arts school for some time. But with each request, denial was given due to my age and maturity. At some point, I stumbled onto a flyer for the studio, and through some miracle, got permission to go and take a class to see if I liked it. I haven’t looked back since.

I currently attend A.R Johnson Health Science and Engineering Magnet school. Though I have put thought into my future career plans, I’ve not yet decided on which to follow and which to let go. I want to make sure that whichever path I choose, it makes me happy, because on my list of priorities that is possibly the highest ranked. I am currently an Assistant Instructor at the studio, for those of you who may not be sure what exactly I do.

I’m grateful for martial arts for affecting my outlook on life. When I started I was a fairly pessimistic kid. Thinking martial arts was nothing more than fighting. Of course, as I progressed in martial arts, I found my views changing. I gained confidence, and after some time I became an optimistic person, who prefers to make a bright side, instead of just searching for one. Martial art is much deeper than just techniques, just like a Black Belt is much deeper than just a belt. It’s a mindset, a feeling, and it is the lifestyle that I have chosen to accept and do my best to live up to.
