Mind, Body and Spirit
and how did you discover the world of combat sports?
discovered the world of combat sports when I was young because my dad was in the
UFC and was a pretty big celebrity at the time and Ive always enjoyed the
aspect of one on one even though my whole life Ive dont team sports.
Theres something about just you versus someone else that challenges you
as a person. My dad introduced me to combat sports when I was around 4 and I just
really enjoyed it and never looked back.
your current focus?
now I am currently running a personal training business part time in Modesto CA
called Lions Den Performance Center trying to use my knowledge to help people
accomplish goals they never knew they could. Its a new business so Im
still trying to get it off the ground and running but I know once I do it will
it like being the son of a MMA and professional wrestling legend, and how do you
deal with it?
been asked this question many times and each time its the same. Respect
was earned by my dads blood, sweat, and tears, and the best thing I can do is
try to live up to it and keep our name in good standing with the people who are
fans. With everything there is good and bad and positives and negatives but my
brothers and I always let the positives outweigh the negatives.
been your biggest life and business successes to date?
biggest successes from sports and life would be the hard work ethic that was instilled
in me at a young age. Knowing that if you want something its up to you to
go get it and that nobody is gonna do it for you. Sometimes people think just
because of who my dad is I would get handed stuff but he would never let us have
a thing unless we earned it and thats the biggest thing that I would consider
a success. As far as challenges I see life as a constant challenge and I thank
GOD everyday to be able to be challenged. When I was in high school I was diagnosed
with kidney cancer and I spent a week or 2 in the hospital and was eventually
cured. But just life experiences like that are what makes me grateful everyday.
some of the life, community and business benefits from your experience in combat
sports is great for social good and improving lives for people who decide to do
it because like I said before you learn a great work ethic and life skills that
you would never learn unless you pushed yourself in that way. You can take peoples
correction in the real world and instead of getting upset you look at yourself
and you adapt and you become better than you were today. Kids now and days need
a reason to be get up and go do something and positive places like MMA gyms or
sports in general keep a kid on the right path (with the right role models are)
and wanting to be better.
