Calvin joined Tiger Schulmann’s MMA Cherry Hill with the hopes of developing a level of confidence that could help him break out of his shell. His parents wanted to make sure that his shyness wouldn’t lead to him getting picked on or taken advantage of down the road. The formula for having self-confidence is a combination of self-discipline and self-defense. The great part for Calvin is that he already had an unbelievable level of self-discipline. Now it is just focusing in on his self-defense so that he is not afraid of what anybody would say or do to him.

“…with developing the ability to achieve in all aspects of life, one will develop a self-confidence, which is where true happiness…”

Because of his focus, he was able to pick up his technique of the moves very quickly and have quick success in class. Through achievements, we develop confidence in that skill. However, with developing the ability to achieve in all aspects of life, one will develop a self-confidence, which is where true happiness is because you believe in yourself and no one can take that away from you. It doesn’t come right away, but Calvin has gone from a kid that doesn’t say a word in class to one that wants to answer all the questions, ki-ai loud at the end of combinations, and will speak up more and more.

The destination has no been reached yet, but the progress is further than I could even hope and that’s due to the constant work from Calvin, nicknamed “Lethal Weapon”. That is why Lethal Weapon recently got promoted to Tiger Schulmann’s High White Belt.
