When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training at 18 months old due to my older brother (by 10 years and 20 days) wanting to start Tae Kwon Do while my mother worked two jobs to provide for us. I’ve trained in several disciplines growing up (Six, although holding a black belt in none).
