Kevin was born in Russia, but has lived a majority of his life in the western world, as well as parts of the Middle East. After graduating university he came to work in Japan and has been here ever since. Just like many others who come to Japan for the first time, it was hard to find a commonality with people. Fitness is a large part of his life and being part of SOGO has been so important to making a home here in Tokyo.
The only constant in Kevin’s life from an early age has been his love for martial arts. He’s practiced various forms such as Shotokan Karate, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, and Kickboxing throughout. Form is everything – if you learn the right way to do something once, you never have to learn it again. Also more gainz.
“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” – Bruce Lee
