I started martial arts (Kyokushin Karate) at the age of 5 and have been competing internationally since 2001, ranking 1st in the Middle East and Asia, and 4th worldwide in Kyokushin Karate. 10 years ago I created my company and holistic fitness concept D’rip Fitness.
I founded D’rip with the intention to change the way people train. I made it my everything to research and find ways where I could integrate and mix methods to create faster, stronger and more impactful results.
My journey of seeking to reach my full potential lead me to the mind, body and soul connection. I came to realize that being strong in one of these is not enough. To optimize our performance we need to heal and build and maintain balance.
I was about to retire from competitive combat sports when I started studying Chinese Medicine and practicing Qigong, while looking for ways to heal my body because I felt fatigued and drained.
That’s when I came across White Tiger Qigong. The dynamic practice, combined with deep elements of relaxation and meditation, not only helped me to balance and store my energy, heal and recover, but gave me the tools to empower myself to explore my potential further.
At age 32 I feel stronger and healthier than ever before. Integrating the best of all these concepts and help others reach their goals and dreams is the passion I share through my D’rip training – that’s where it all comes together.
