Ninja Nguyen started his martial arts journey when he was four years old, growing up in a small fishing village in Vietnam. He continued to train in refugee camps, where martial arts served as his guiding light while he struggled to learn English in unfamiliar classrooms, preparing to come to America.
Ninja later worked in security for nightclubs before finally opening his own dojo and building the life he has today. He is now the owner of Xtreme Ninja Martial Arts Center in Boston, which currently trains more than 500 students.
In his new book, Step on the Mat: Life Lessons of the Ninja, Ninja shows how martial arts are more than just punching and kicking, and he highlights how the valuable lessons found in the routines of the martial arts can be applied to everything else you do in your life.
