American Shaolin Kenpo Karate motivates me to keep being the best that I can. I will be honest and admit that I stopped practicing Shaolin Kenpo for my first few years in college. I personally felt that I needed to pursue other interests and use my energy in other ways. I meant no disrespect to my teachings or training, it was just my decision. At first, I was relieved at all of the free time in my schedule. Then, things started to slip... My weight had shot up to 240+lbs. I was slower, less energetic & less focused. It took a few eye-opening experiences to make me realize that I needed Shaolin Kenpo back. I re-started my honest training 18 months ago & NOW, I'm a newly Athletic 181 lbs! I owe it to God, my family, and the lifelong lessons that were taught to me by my 2nd family at the Antioch Martial Arts Academy. THANK GOD FOR AMAA!
