"Sometimes life is about risking everything for a dream no one can see but you."
"To have the Heart to continue, no matter what the circumstances; No matter how many times you have to try; it doesn't matter how much you lose; It means to never accept defeat; it means to either Do or Die – that is all that defines you. YOU CAN'T TEACH HEART."
Where it all began...
I'm not a sports person since young. However there was a long period of my life I wasn't in good health, partly due to my stressful workload back then as a Project Architectural Manager. That lead me to find a hobby to do in my free time to keep fit. I first started training muay thai for a short while before I found Jiu Jitsu. I like it very much due to the strategic nature of the sport, it's very mentally demanding as well as physically. Through Jiu Jitsu, I start to see incremental improvements and benefits for my health. Soon after, I made the big decision of my life to quit my full-time job to follow the Jiu Jitsu lifestyle and became a fitness coach. Now I help others with their fitness and with my flexible hours; to focus on improving my art of Jiu Jitsu.
"I'm thankful that HyperflyAsia recognize my work, grateful to them for the opportunities the brand has given me and supporting my journey"
