“In our youth, we can be put onto trajectories which change the future course of our lives without us having so much as an inkling of knowledge of the event which has occurred. Such was the case with myself, when at the age of eight, my dad sold a Nissan Maxima to a certain individual. That individual was to be my future Sifu, Scott Jensen. Having been invited to a Kung Fu demo by 10,000 Victories School, my dad brought me along, and naturally I was fascinated by the complicated and impressive body mechanics and movements of Northern Shaolin Kung Fu.” – Burak Yildiz
