Motivational Mondays- Steal Back Your time

Every day, I find that I just don't have enough time in the day.  I have a few hours set aside for this or for that, and before I know it, I'm scrambling to get things done.  I've realized that my day is being stolen from me, a few minutes at a time.  A few minutes here or there to check emails and messages turns into a few extra to check the alerts on my apps.  A text message to catch up and plan a meeting turns into a half hour conversation of pleasantries and a few scrolls down the…

Start Growing or Start Dying

There is no constant other than change.

In the world, something is always growing or it is dying.  

I've made my choice.

I'm growing.  Im building something.  I'm on my way to the best I've ever been...

Style

Style is everything & your shit is corny.  

I thought this up the other day and cracked myself up.  Basically i'm trying to build something amazing for people to enjoy.  I want to have people in my life that truly appreciate it and love to be a part of something great.  I'm not in this to pat myself on the back. And i shake my head at the corny dudes that love themselves above everything else.

2017- Global Domination

It was in the last few months that I got pretty sick of myself.  I hit a breaking point and decided i needed some change. Now, i'm bent on global domination.   I'm looking to be the me I want to be.  I'm looking to have the impact that I want to have. I'm looking to build the place I want to build.  I am chipping away the unnecessary and widdling it down to just the necessary to build the life I want to live. 

I'm going to be increasing my public presence and offering a ton of content…

The merit of being in a tough fight

It's an incredible feeling to win. It's exhilirating to dominate your opponent in a fight. It makes you feel unstoppable and superhuman. I've had fights like that. I've knocked out opponents quickly. I've been on highlight reels. It's incredible...

But, those aren't the fights that I love most. They're not the fights that make me better. They're not the experiences I hold dearest. It's the tough fights, the bangers, the close ones, the drawn out wars that I've been in that make me the… Continue

The League of Extraordinary Fighting Gentleman

I'm working on some things right now to offer a place for the area's top talent to come and train together in a fighters-only style atmosphere.  Steel sharpens steel and so many of us have such a hard time coordinating training with high level partners.  So I wanna fix that problem and get a schedule of times that the best fighters in philly and around can come together and work hard together, no matter gym affiliation.

I'll keep you party people posted on it, but it's definitely…

Fear and Failure.

Fear is a human thing. It's part of all of us.

We all have a fear of failiure. But get over it. Put it on the line.

Failure is not losing, or falling short of success. Failure is being too scared to try.

Never let the fear of fallin short of success keep you from putting your all into something.

Always be willing to swing for the fences, or go all in, or go down swinging.

I can deal with the failure of losing. I've done it 24 times. It sucks. I hate it. I swear it'll… Continue

Talk less. Do more.

Life is weird. Especially times of conflict and adversity. In this past year, I've realized that life is full if surprises. The most shocking surprises I've seen in my recent life is that everything you think you know about people is wrong.

The people who you think will be there for you through thick an thin, won't. The people who you really think care about you and hold the same things dear as you, don't. People very close to you will tell you one thing and then do the opposite. The more… Continue

It would be neat if scoring Muay Thai in the states were actually like this.

Maybe someday.

The dude is no expert, and he doesn't claim to be. I think he does have most things pretty spot on, though. And he explains it in an easy way that makes sense.

Thai culture is inherently different than Western culture, especially American culture.… Continue

Fight day

Hey party people! So, it's officially fight day. I'm here in NYC having a late breakfast and chilling out, preparing to give it my all later.

It has been an absolutely insane past few weeks. Circumstances for the fight are way less than optimal, but I've committed to the fight and I will give it al I have.

It was only a few weeks ago that my former coach, Rigel, informed me that he was not interested in be a part of the beautiful gym that I built for us, and subsequently that he would… Continue

January Chaos

Many of you have been in touch with me over the past few months, through the trials of the displacement from our location at 2nd St. in Northern Liberties, through Cool Hearts trying to set up shop at Fight Firm.  I reached out to many of you to tell you the status of things and to ask for support.  

It has been 6 months since we left Northern Liberties, and many of you have been in touch as we launched our indiegogo project, which with your help, was a smashing success.

We…

The Current State of Affairs

Hey everyone. 

So, many of you are freaking out. I certainly understand that. I will be doing everything i can to keep people up to date on all information concerning Cool Hearts Muay Thai, the fight team, and myself.

As for right now, there is definite uncertainty with who will be doing what where.  It's actually a mess that i did not see coming, and would never believe would be there.

I would like to offer an open line of communication for any questions or concerns…

Glory 12

Holy crap!

Last nights show in New York was wild. A whole lot of things happened that I did not see coming... Giorgio Petrosyan got knocked out. Then so did Robin Van Roosmalen. Both by the same dude, Andy Ristie, who may or may not be the baddest man on the planet, but he sure did knock two of the baddest dudes on the planet yesterday. That was wild.

Then, Joe Schilling vs. Wayne Barrett...

Now, say what you want about Joe Schilling. I actually thought he was a bit of a turd for… Continue

Stay Tuned! Big News Coming!

The Coolest Place on Earth

I know I'm not alone.  I absolutely love Muay Thai. I know so many people that have so much love for Muay Thai, real Muay Thai.  It's my dream to have a real, authentic Muay Thai camp to train at and be a part of.   I don't want to try to teach "striking" or "kickboxing" or try to fit the things that are important to me into a hole that it doesn't quite fit in.

I've been thinking about the things that are important to me. I've been compiling lists.  If I could build the perfect place…

Upcoming Radness

Well, recently, I've been doing more "business" stuff than I ever have in my life.  

I have really been putting my head down and working for the future. I'll be talking a bit more in the next few weeks about some really amazing things that I'm working towards. Please be on the lookout for some big news and possibly even me asking for some help in making this dream of mine a reality.

Thank you to everyone for all of your support and love. I'm fucking super pumped for the…

Validating Moments Part 2

Not long ago, I got hooked up with the New Jersey State Athletic Commission.  I was supposed to fight in AC on the Battle at Bally's 2 show as the main event agains Gabriel Varga.  He and I had both just been signed to K-1 contracts, so, in a smart move for both of us, Gabe decided that he shouldn't risk injury fighting me. I am no good and making good choices like that. I'm glad he did though, because K-1 gave me my best payday ever, by more than double. 

I still went to the show,…
