Finding Your Power

When I started martial arts at age 13, it definitely empowered me. I felt I had the ability to protect myself which gave me a huge confidence boost. People tried to bully me, but they failed, because I stood up for myself, always.

The confidence this gave me is immeasurable.

But, it wasn’t until I started training in Choy Lay Fut Kung-Fu, when I realized my actual power. Choy Lay Fut’s methodology is very direct in how one develops actual physical power. When I started, I realized very quickly that even though I was mentally powerful (confident), I realized I had some growing to do, in terms of developing my actual physical power.

My teachers gave me the drills and training I needed, and after a couple of months, my ability to generate power shot through the roof! It got to the point where one of my trainers said, “Um, you broke the pad! And, you bruised your hands - you have to take a break for a few days and let your hands heal.”

That was an important milestone, I felt I had reached a level I never had before. It shot my belief in myself to a new height I had not experienced, because there is no way to fake your power in Choy Lay Fut Kung-Fu. You can hit a target and feel/see/hear for yourself how much power you have generated.

This is what I want to do with you. I want to help you develop your power. Developing your power is not just a physical journey. There is a mental process to it, as well, which is just as important (and some may argue that is more important) as your physical power.

—If you have trouble with focus, I will help you train your focus, and maximize your power.
—If you have trouble with believing in yourself, I will help you build your confidence progressively, and maximize your power.

Once you have developed your power, I will teach you how to maintain, nurture, and control your power, but that is a topic for another day.

Finding your power is something you could do on your own, but it’s way more efficient and effective when you have a coach by your side, guiding you. That’s where I come in. Let me guide you, to maximize your power.

Once you’re making gains, you should be guiding others, and the cycle continues.
