What’s up! I’m Chris, and I am beyond happy that you stopped by today!
I started ‘mma_yogi’ a couple of years ago on Instagram to demonstrate to Yogi’s, Martial Artists, and Fitness Enthusiasts that their worlds could not only co-exist; but that they could merge together in perfect harmony! Martial artists can significantly improve from Yoga practice, just as Yogi’s can greatly benefit from a practice of Martial Arts and or strength training!
I really had no idea what I was doing at the time with ‘mma_yogi’ or social media, but I knew I was very passionate about what I did and wanted to share my vision with others. I hoped to inspire people to look inward for mental and spiritual strength, which in turn would help provide mastery over the physical. Who knew I would learn so much and make such great friends along the way!
My goal with this blog is quite simple…..to share awesome stuff with you guys!
- Video Workouts

- Nutritional Advice + Recipes

A little about me:
I was born and raised in sunny California (Bay Area)
I am ½ African American, ¼ Caucasian, and ¼ Japanese
I worked in the Silicon Valley tech industry before deciding to quit the 9-5, finish college at UC Davis (GO AGGS!), and pursue my dreams of teaching yoga and fitness training.
I’ve been practicing Yoga on and off for almost 10 years now and teaching for 2! My favorite style is Budokon Yoga—A hybrid Hatha & Martial Arts Flow
I’ve practiced Martial Arts for 15+ years. During this time i’ve developed my own style which is a mixture of: Muay Thai, Jeet Kune Do, Tae Kwon Do. I also practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
If I were to dream up the PERFECT afternoon it would involve me sitting in a window seat of my favorite local coffee shop with a hot gunpowder green tea and a good book.
My favorite food is sushi!! nOm NoM!
Maneki Neko’s (Japanese Lucky Cats) are pretty much my favorite thing in the world. I have quite an extensive collection, and if you look closely you can even spot a few in my logo!
