As a kid, I loved playing ping-pong and soccer. When I came to US, I started playing around little bit with skateboarding. I was doing all of them as a hobby. Although I was not good at any of them, these sports helped me build muscle coordination.
One day, I saw Jackie Chan’s movie called ‘Drunken Master’ and found an intense urge to learn Chinese martial arts Kungfu/Wushu. I spent next 10-12 years learning Kungfu/Wushu. This is when I started learning a lot about muscle flexibility, training consistency, importance of being fit, skill improvement, and having fun through hard work. I competed in various collegiate and national tournaments. Overtime, I also learned other martial arts such as Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, and Karate.
Then a friend of mine introduced me to CrossFit and Weightlifting. These sports present different kind of challenge and dedication. I quickly fell in love with them and hope to keep on doing for a long long time. In weightlifting, I have won Maryland State 2011 championships and came 5th in US National championships 2012. I also have US Weightlifting (USAW) Level 1 certification.
I will be happy to help you in any way I can.
