Sometimes, all it takes for the universe to allow you a path to your goals is the belief of one person in you. One stranger who quickly becomes a friend, coach and teacher to help guide you TO that path. When I first met the legend Frank Dux, he left a crowd to come over and start speaking to me. We talked about my past, training, martial arts etc. He opened my mind to adaptability and believed from the moment I met him that my opportunity would come in the film industry not just because of how I looked but also because I was articulate and could move well for such a big guy. We continued to work together and he has continued to help and be a positive source of inspiration for me. For those who don't know, Frank Dux life was chronicled in the movie Bloodsport starring Jean-Claude Van Damme. Hanshi, Frank W. Dux is the undisputed 1975 to 1980 (undefeated) No Holds Barred World Heavy Weight Kumite Champion and is the holder of 16 World Records, still intact. As you can see, unlike the actor who portrayed him, Frank was a large man who moved extremely quick for his size and mastered use of his power. He STILL holds the World Record for the fastest knockout in competition. It is people like this in my life who DID believe in me wanting to work with and guide me who I thank most as I prepare for my first full length action film Doggmen. And this is just the beginning. Believe in yourself and surround yourself with those who share that belief. Along the way there will be doubters, and haters. They will multiply with every accomplishment you make. They can't help it. You remind them of what they couldn't- or rather WOULDN'T do. Thank them for letting you know you are doing the right thing since if you weren't? they wouldn't know your name or have anything to say. There is NOTHING you cannot do. The tough part is believing you can. Once you do? NOTHING can stop you.
