I grew up in Arizona, but have traveled across the United States and seemingly a good portion of the world; living in Europe, the Middle East, and making roots in Colorado Springs. I started my serious jiu-jitsu and MMA training when I was in Army stationed in Germany and have brought my love of teaching and training with me ever since. In 2010 I took the military role of a life time as the NCOIC and Senior Instructor of the Fort Carson Army Combatives Program and began my deep dive into how to train people for different scenarios.
Now, my wife and I collect Dobermans and Greyhounds while working towards my PhD in Economics / Public Choice.
You may not be the only thing holding you back, but you can only control what YOU are doing to hold YOU back. If you have done everything you can to eliminate your own barriers, then you can complain about circumstances… but I have a feeling that at that point you won’t have to.
