Martial arts, primarily tae kwon do and american boxing, have been a part of my life for almost a quarter of a century. The benefits are not only physical and mental, but a sense of ethics/morality is also installed in your mind. I have also had my fair share of tournaments over the years, along with a multitude of injuries (three knee surgeries, one elbow operation and and counting!). But as I travel though Asia, regardless of my IR status, I want to explore some of the fighting arts in their native countries. So when I came to the Philippines, I could not pass up the opportunity to learn Filipino martial arts. And I was not disappointed. That is to say, to be able to play with weapons and get a workout at the same time – can I be in any higher of a heaven? I don’t think so.
WHY I QUIT MY JOB TO TRAVEL THE WORLD!
ABOUT M.H. REESE
Live life today, not tomorrow.
Welcome to IFearRegret.com! I was born in the Pacific Northwest, spent almost all of my pre-college years in New York City and New Jersey, and went to college and graduate school in North Carolina and Washington DC, so it is definitely fair to say I was a bit of a nomad in my early days. Upon returning to the NYC/NJ area, I worked in the legal and banking fields for about 10 years before I decided to quit my job and travel the world.
