Growing up in a tough neighborhood in Brooklyn, Karate gave Tony the confidence and the values that kept him focused on success. After several years of training Tony started to compete on the National Karate circuit and became one of the top fighting and forms competitors in the country. It was on the National Karate Circuit where Tony met Billy Blanks the number one fighter in the country at that time, and who later created Tae Bo.
