4 years ago, I wanted to learn how to fight. I'd been practicing Traditional Chinese Martial Arts for many years by that point, but had never really gotten into Sanshou. A friend of mine who was a professional MMA fighter was taking on training clients. I reached out to him, discussed my goals, and we got started training for a Leitai competition.
Over the course of that journey, I learned more about myself and martial arts than I ever thought I would. While I learned countless lessons that I value, there four that resonate with me the most.
