And shortened I'm only at age 19 and I'm 46 (lol)
Started training at age 7
My real name is Kevin Mohan I was born 1969 in Mt Kisco, NY and moved to New Milford, Ct when I was in The third grade. I have a younger sister that is currently a school teacher in Baltimore, MD. My father died when I was young so my mother raised my sister and I, mom worked hard just to keep a roof over our heads. My mother went back to college at age 30 and got her Masters Degree in psychology while working god bless her. I was very close with my Grandparents who lived in Purdys, NY I would visit with them pretty much every weekend they lived very close to the train station (and had a pool lol).
When I was seven years old my now ex uncle was a black belt in Isshin-Ru Karate (Japanese), and introduced me to martial arts. He would teach me pretty much every weekend I was hooked on the arts. After my aunts divorce I had no more Sensei I felt stuck. Then when I was in the 5th grade The Town of New Milford offered Tang Soo Do at John Petti Bone school I was so excited to join. Talked to my mother about it, but money was an issue so I talked to my Grandfather who was the only real father figure I ever had and he paid for me to sign up for Tang Soo Do (Korean). I took the class for about two years the instructor was very strict and would actually hit the students with a wooden stick
if you didn't do your techniques properly. I believe this caught up to him and he was fired and the class was cancelled again stuck with no training. Then I was fortunate enough to get 2 paper routes when I was in middle school and started earning my own money. One route was tuff The Danbury News Times a daily paper, and my route was Mist Hill Rd. ( very steep hill) I rode my bike every morning down and back up that hill every morning before school delivery papers I had a lot of customers too. Wanting to continue martial arts I found "Brookfield Martial Arts" an ITF Tae Kwon Do school (North Korean) it was expensive, but I was making pretty good money with my paper routes so I joined. The school was awesome out of the four Tae Kwon Do systems that I know of ITF was self-defense based not sport based. They had one very strict rule if you got into a fight you were kicked out of the school, the instructor recommended that I don't tell anyone about my training so no one would challenged me to avoid any confrontations so I told no one except my immediate family new. At 19 I got my first Black Belt felt like a super hero it was awesome, went out with everyone from the dojo to a bar and had a great time. I moved to Litchfield, Ct and wanted to continue my training, but I wanted something different from Tae Kwon Do.
