“Everyone has talent ,what is rare is the courage to allow that talent to take you to places where it may lead”
Nick Martino was born in Burnaby British Columbia , In an Italian household rich in culture and heritage . With this culture came a work ethic . With parents immigrating from Italy to Canada , hard work has been the corner stone that defines Nick. From A young age Nick has put hard work into everything he has done . Nick started out playing soccer at 7yrs old . Nick unfortunately realized that team sports were not for Nick . Nick loved soccer , just not the environment .This environment included Nick finding himself on the sidelines looking in , and not being able to play. Nick felt left behind and was never given a chance or the confidence that the rest of his teammates were given. Nick was left wondering what did I do wrong. He was told he was not skilled enough , or big enough . With potential there, no one wanted to encourage it or recognize it . With this happening at such a young age , Nicks work ethic plummeted . This lead to bullying and less than mediocre school grades . With Nicks parents noticing this change in attitude , A change had to happen . Heading into high school , this was the time to change.
Coming home from school Nicks mom came across a martial arts school . Nick responded by saying : ”how is that going to help me “. The next day Nicks mom made the visit to the martial arts school . once inside , Nick noticed a team of black belts training. Nick was in awe, but at the same time he was thinking , I will never be this good . Could I reach that level?. Nick tried A class and discovered that he had some raw ability . Like every first class Nick was shy . As he kept with it Nick noticed his body changing , appearing more confident , was getting faster more agile and flexible . Martial arts was tonic that Nick needed .
