My main instructor was Steve Bower, who, very lucky enough to train under him. I moved from Japan back to America. Unfortunately I was hit by a car. But I was lucky enough to find Brazilian Jitsu, and really find my passion in the art of Brazilian Jitsu. And from there I started training and competing in mixed martial arts. I now run Radical MMA NYC, which is a martial arts, a mixed martial arts school in New York City. And I’m sort of more of the grappling oriented instructor.
