I started martial arts in 2005, specifically in Long Fist Kung Fu under World Kickboxing Champion, Master Karl Romain. I trained at his school for a year and half and made it to purple sash. Unfortunately, I injured myself during training and could not continue. After a long road to recovery, I started to look for a martial art that did not have any forms (katas) and was strictly self-defense based. My research led me to Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do. I read into its history and how the man himself, Bruce Lee, was at one time injured and gradually became a better martial artist than he ever was. I looked into who Bruce’s students were and one student caught my eye, a man named Ted Wong. Ted Wong was known for being Bruce’s last student but was widley recognized of how he moved like the man himself. Unfortunately, Ted Wong resided in California and I had no funds to travel back and forth. I did further research and found a list of Ted Wong’s students. Luckily, there was one student and certified instructor by Ted Wong, located in New York state named Richard Torres. I come to find out that his Jeet Kune Do school was 63 miles away from where I was located. Nevertheless, I emailed him and made my first appointment. I still have that email. Did I drive those 63 miles to train with Richard Torres? You bet! Since August 2007, I have been a student of Sifu Richard Torres. In December 2014, I was promoted to Instructor and in May of 2016, I was given permission to teach on my own.
