I'm a second degree black belt in American Kenpo Karate. I have been training for over ten years and will soon be testing for my third degree. I was a martial artist long before I was a disc golfer, and it is my true passion in life. Being a black belt has helped me learn and progress mush faster than I think I might have in disc golf. It also allows me to teach disc golf basics and fundamentals to beginners since teaching is what I do for a living.
