"I grew up in a Christian home.  My father is a Cambodian pastor and was a missionary in the refugee camps in Thailand, so I am PK and MK.  I accepted Jesus as my Savior when I was seven years old.  My mother is Filipino.  I did not feel like I fit in growing up because I did not understand my identity in Christ.  After a prodigal period in college, I started to listen to God calling me back home to Himself. After graduating I enrolled at Multnomah Biblical Seminary for the one year graduate certificate program.  I heard about NW Karate for Christ and was reintroduced to a lifelong love of martial arts (I had studied Hath Goju-Ryu as a boy).

Now I am studying in the M.Div program at MBS; the karate club is my internship at Central Bible Church.  My spiritual gift is Mercy and I like to teach and lead by example.  I like to encourage people to worship and trust in God.  I am learning to be faithful in prayer, especially for my family and students."

Primary Style: Tae Kwon Do - I studied for a year, 3 hours each day, but only tested out to green belt.  I also studied briefly in Kenpo Karate.  I have experience in boxing also.  But most of what I do is to show God's power over the sin in our lives.

"We (the X-Treme Team) are all sold out, God servin', sin hatin', men of God. Currently, two of us are going to continue our martial arts training so that we may incorporate more breaks and forms into our Gospel Presentation. Check us out and God bless!"
