The story Alex shares in the interview of one of his students “The Bully Beater” speaks volumes to the Victory Martial Arts Academy Program.
Growing up as a teen, Alex was fortunate to have a mentor AKA his Sensei, who guided him through his training. This mentorship instilled the values that he now passes on to his own students. Alex says, “Honor is the seed you plant into someone to grow a relationship.” What a great way to cultivate young boys and girls into productive adults.
