Jerry’s influence from the martial arts started fromwatching a Filipino action movie, Ang Agimat Ni PePe” starring a butt kicking little kid named Nino Muhlach. The obsession continued by watching the television show Black Belt theatre, which featured old Kung Fu flicks every Saturday afternoon.

After graduation he practiced Brazilian JuJitsu and Jeet Kune Do at the Progressive Fighting System academy.
For 12 years, Jerry enlisted into the USAF and would continue to train whenever given the opportunity. When stationed at Washington State he attended the Natural Spirit School to continue studying JKD and was introduced into the art of Modern Arnis. During his time stationed in Illinois, he enrolled at a local Boxing/Kickboxing gym for his chosen physical fitness activity.

Travis first discovered the world of martial arts thanks to the works of (among others) Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, Ernie Reyes, Jr., Jim Kelly, Sonny Chiba and, of course, the immortal Al Leong.
He started his journey into practicing beginning in grade school with Gosoku Ryu karate, moved to Shaolin Do kung fu in college and has only recently started delving into Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Martial Arts. In his mind, all martial arts have an extremely important place in a balanced human society. As a working artist, he believes the state of mind one feels when honing his craft and when focusing on learning the forms in any combat system are one and the same.
Like many others, becoming a husband and father means finding time for Travis to personally balance mind, body and spirit is harder than ever. He hopes Fighting Measure can help others like him easily connect with the people and resources they need to continue to better their own lives through martial arts.
