My teacher said, “A true master makes masters.” My journey to master instructor took almost 15 years of daily training. I had to overcome many personal obstacles to achieve this. I battled lethargy, depression, debilitating shyness, fear, divorce, and much pain. There were times on that I wanted to quit, but I continued. All these challenges tested my spirit yet, by continuing to train regardless of circumstances, great things are achieved.
Had I allowed any event to interfere with my training, I would not have achieved what I did. Becoming a part of these ancient lineages and then becoming a lineage holder, forged a great determination in me to use them to protect this earth and to carry on these teachings. I have been trained by men that make warriors and real masters and am grateful for this opportunity.
