Happy Birthday Son

Today I want to put a birthday shout out to my son, and KMMA Sensei, Winston Del Castillo.

   I am proud of and grateful for him; and of course I love him with the love of a father for his son.

I am proud of and grateful for him as both his father and teacher, and to have him on my A-Team at KMMA.

Winston started training at Krav Maga Martial Arts at the age of four, got his first Blackbelt at 9, his 3rd Degree Senior Blackbelt in 2020, and is now one of the Head Instructors helping me produce other confident and competent Blackbelt leaders at KMMA.

   He’s an amazing martial artist, a great teacher, and a kind and compassionate young man, with a big heart and a great future.

He turns 19 this Wednesday.

Join me in wishing him a great one in our Official KMMA Family page!

Prepare To Live; Empower To Lead!
