I'm not married and single, but I enjoy doing daily cooking and cleaning chores. I like to cook meals that provide nutrients to build my body and recover from fatigue, and I also enjoy cleaning to keep my mind in a good state.




My favorite foods are: cheese, apples, and chicken breast!

I'll do my best at the World Combat Games in October 2023 and consider it a milestone.

I won't retire. I'll keep training and if I can reach an even higher level, I'll come back anytime.
