Nearly two years ago Kevin was diagnosed with a potentially deadly pilonidal cyst at the base of his spine. After the painful surgery, the doctors told Kevin his training had to come to a halt and that he couldn’t even think about resuming  for at least 6 months. But Kevin was back at school in one.

Fighting terrible bleeding spells, horrible pain, and a less than supportive family, Kevin turned to his teachings from karate to help him through this ordeal
