Today I had the pleasure to coach my friend Ariel in his first kickboxing competition. Ariel was recently interviewed on my blog for his incredible self transformation story and even after losing all that weight, Ariel still strives to improve himself. After nothing but hard work he took home the gold in his first kickboxing tournament!
It is very inspirational to see Ariel transition from being a shy 300 lb teenager into a 160 pound kickboxing machine. This is the first step in his journey as a martial artists and it makes me very proud to be a part of it.
Keep up the good work Ariel!
Congratulations on your well deserved victory.
