“You taught me how to Fight. You instilled in me to never give up....ever!...... A letter from a Marine
Below is a letter from Sgt Rancel who I trained, he was not in a good place himself. He made the commitment to change.
A letter received from Sgt. Ernesto Rancel (USMC). I don't know if you remember me I used to be a member at USA Karate & Fitness. I'm in Sri Lanka an Island off the southern tip of India. The only thing is that there has been a terrorist war going on here for a while now. They have me out here working as a Marine diplomat, which is cool because you get a lot privileges. I'm also attending the University of Maryland. Just wanted to thank you again because it was your guidance and discipline that kept my nose clean. Although you might not know it, going to your workouts and classes was the only outlet I had. I was going through really tough times in school, at home my life fell apart but, I learned from you that in life getting knocked down is not the problem it's getting back up, to never give up or quit! To fight harder and stronger. You have instilled that in me, I have been in the fight ever since and I am forever thankful. I have enclosed a picture and the American flag for you that I took with me to Afghanistan and Iraq. I hope this is you...
