“Why does he wear those goggles?” People often ask. Some know, many don’t. It’s because I have a prosthetic eye. I lost an eye training. It was a speed bump in my martial arts journey. It was one of many “outs” presented to me, but I have never looked for an out nor will I ever want or take one. I love what I do in a way that can only be experienced or witnessed but never fully explained.
When you join RMT you aren’t just paying for classes you’re paying for my expertise, my passion, my knowledge, my techniques. You’re paying for the blood, sweat, and tears I’ve poured into my craft. On top of that you get a community and a path for yourself.
I’m baffled when people try to haggle me over my prices...I’m quite affordable, shop around. Which I’m sometimes ashamed of. I’m ashamed of the fact I don’t have enough confidence to truly charge what I know we’re worth. Especially knowing my journey and continued growth. I convince myself that it’s because I just want to teach man. I want to share and I’d almost do it for free. Sometimes I do 😬 So here I am training with my coaching staff at 6am so we all stay sharp. Making sure that what we provide is the best it can be. No half steppin’ for my staff or myself.
Your health, your hobbies, your passions are investments. They are investments in your overall happiness, betterment, and well being. ...or you can keep eating out. 🤷♂️ Consider that the next time you approach a coach or trainer. Look into what they can do for you and what they offer, decide if it’s a smart investment and can get you the results you desire. Look past the sales pitch. Are they passionate? What’s their story? Do they inspire you? Do they embody the growth you’d like to see in yourself? Then finally ask yourself...what’s that worth to you?
