My new focus/goals

As of right now im mostly focused on leg strength, and iron body training. I will share my progress over this summer, and advice is welcomed just be respectful. Im going to tell you a quick story about how i was introduced into martial arts. When i was 22 i used to drink a lot not caring about my health and made some mistakes along the way. I then started watching these van damme movies and was greatly inspired to do splits and high kicks. Eventually, I met a friend and he was a black belt in karate and taekwondo. He was taking classes at this school in the area we lived. I went there for couple weeks then stopped going, because of financial  problems.  I later started looking online mostly youtube and started following videos, then those videos lead to books, I also would rent or buy every martial arts movies i could find. Now i know im not certified or have a black belt ect.. but i believe i came a long way to where im at now. I enjoy what i do this is a hobby to stay in shape, most importantly im having fun. I dont train to make this a career like the ufc i know im not the best, and definitely not certified or taught by a legit master.

  1. Great post! Thank you for sharing the genesis of your jurney in Martial Art. It's great that you find so much enjoyment in your personal training. I myself am a black belt in Taekwondo on paper. However, I recognise that a belt doesn't protect you from a punch to the face, training and skill does. Basically, it's not about having a black belt, it's about being one. I've seen a few of you videos and I think you've done incredibly well to reach the level you've attained without the guidance of an instructor. I doubt many people would be able to do what you have done by doing it the way you did. Congratulations and I look forward to seeing your progress icybeer!
