Congratulations to Chris Rappold

I'm truly honored to announce that not more than 2 hours ago, I received a phone call from Italy. Master Chris Rappold, founder of Personal Best Sport Karate, won the 40 and over gold medal at the World Karate Championships!

Master Rappold is more than a client, he is one of my business mentors and a great friend. We started training for his competition in August.  It was a good challenge for me as well to take a number of concepts that I use for training my MMA athletes and formulate a plan for him.

Of course I was not alone on this venture, this was a team effort. Master Rappold had many sparring partners, supporters, and his family behind him. Just goes to show you there is no I in team!
