I have a PhD in Computational Condensed Matter Physics from the University of Southern California as well as three Bachelor's Degrees in physics, mathematics, and philosophy from the University of Texas.
I have spent the last eighteen years studying and competing in more than eight distinct styles of martial arts, and I firmly believe that the diversity of styles is one of the things that makes studying martial arts in the United States great. My first blackbelt is in Hapkido, and hopefully there will be many more to follow.
