The Champions Uprising tells the story of how I transformed myself from a lost kid running the streets of Queens, NY into a professional Muay Thai champion. From a near-death street fight to losing most of what I built after Hurricane Sandy, my life has been a series of battles. To overcome each battle, I had to dig deep and pull from the champion’s mindset.

The stories are mine, but the lessons are universal. Begin your journey through the Champions Uprising and face your fears, solve self-doubt, and learn to handle the hardships that life throws your way.
