Albert was introduced to Kettlebells by Vince Choo at KDT Academy in Kuala Lumpur, and has seen firsthand the immense benefits that this training has to offer – including greatly improved stamina, strength, balance and posture. He has been training in the martial arts since 2000, studying Wado and Goju Karate while living in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. One of the first Certified Kettlebell Trainers in the South East Asian region, he is a Certified Fizfit Core Strength Advanced coach, a Trainer in the Crazy Monkey Defense Program and a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
In 2005 Albert began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has represented KDT Academy at Blue Belt level in several international competitions. His achievements include first place finishes in the 2008 Will-Machado BJJ Australasia Championships, and the 2008 FBT Thailand BJJ / Submission Grappling Open – successes which owe much to his Kettlebell training. He is the owner-operator, and head coach for the Fizfit and Kettlebell conditioning, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Crazy Monkey Defense programs at Studio 23.
He holds a degree in Anthropology (Hons) from McMaster University, and is also an accomplished copywriter, having won a Bronze Lion at the 2007 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival.
