Martial Arts pretty much saved me.
I used to do mixed martial arts when I was in high school for about a year than I stopped because I had too many assignments and it was hard for me to keep studying. I also didn't have much money so I quit.
After a few years, I decided to go back as I missed it so much and I felt like I needed to do it. Martial arts is something I love doing and I also needed something to do in the afternoon, get me fit, motivated, help keep the stress away and not worry.
One night, I decided to go back to the gym and check it out. It was cool, a few of the guys remembered me. :)
Now ever since I've been back, I've had an awesome time and I am sure I made the right decision to go back at that time. I also met Aaron there. He only just came back from Japan that week too. It's funny how that works out. I guess I just got lucky.
I also used to hate sparring with all the guys because they were stronger and better than me but I've gotten used to it, and I LOVE it! It's a challenge for me but I learn every time I spar with everyone and its super fun!!
