Master Mehrdad and His Involvement with Strykerz KidFit
Master Mehrdad was born in the City of Sari, Iran “Persia” and raised near the Caspian Sea. Since the age of 4, I was very competitive and always strategized my next training methods to make me superior. As I grew older and began more intensive training, my training regimens would include explosive weight training methods, plyometrics, Ancient Persian Meels training, and kettlebells. Today, you see so many people venturing out into new training systems that include these methods.
Persian Warrior initial sports training started at age five and began heavily in football “Soccer”, track, boxing, Persian wrestling “Kushti Pahlevani“/ Zhurkhanah (means house of power). Persian historical national sports and strength training go back to the time of King Cyrus “The Great” and those are the roots I drew upon. As I grew older I trained in traditional Martial Arts and Kushti Kaj.
Master Mehrdad founded World Shin Do Kumaté Association, Inc., an organization established to produce amateur kickboxing events, as well sanction amateur kickboxing competitions internationally.
