1. Kevin: Wow. Well, after New York, the following year, when I came down from New York, I was determined to be my own boss. I had not been in control of my life while I was in New York. It was all other people to let me have a job. And when I lost the job, that really, that really hurt.
2. Kevin: And so when I went home I decided that I was going to own my own business, and I opened my first business which was a Karate school, and I it that I had worked for almost a year saving up and then, well I also had a small inheritance from my grandmother.
3. Kevin: That would have been a strange business to start if I didn't know it. But yeah, yeah, I'd done it, I started when I was a kid. And, at the time, I was 20, I think 20, just about to turn 21 when I opened it. And I was ni-dan at the time, second degree black belt, and I had been teaching at my instructor's school for a while and he had encouraged me, you know, to and do it.
