My name is James McMurtry and I have been training with eye of the eagle since midway through 2006. The reason I started was because a friend dragged me along but I also had been doing dialysis (treatment for kidney failure) for about a year and I wanted to see if doing martial arts could give me some help with some of the problems that I was facing. Happily I found Sifu Bill and he began training and helping me. He is very understanding when it comes to my health however he still pushes me as much as he can.
I have now been training in kung Fu for 5 years and taekwondo for around 4 years and enjoying every minute. I have also been trained in some meditation techniques that have helped me heaps especially since I had a kidney transplant 3 years ago.
In this time I have gained a red sash in my Kung Fu training and a single black tip in taekwondo. I hope to gain a black belt and higher and continue to learn all that I can I want to become an instructor, so that I may pass on all that I have learned, and have the ability to help other people in similar situations to me.
