Mark, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started training in martial arts when I was 13 years old in 1991. After my first class, I knew I would be doing it the rest of my life. I never went to college. Upon graduation from high school, I opened my own school in 1996. In 2017 I opened my second school. I have been in business in my hometown I grew up and was raised in now for 21 years. I have and still continue to travel the world competing and learning and growing with the martial arts. I have met many great people on my journey and it is still growing day by day. I feel very fortunate to have found my passion at such an early age and grateful to have amazing students that have come to me for so many years for guidance.
