It all began at the age of 5 after watching a Bruce Lee-movie, from then on he knew he wanted to become a martial artist. Emil was lucky enough to meet Bruce's brother, Robert Lee and eventually Emil started taking lessons in Jeet Kune Do. Emil has now met and trained with the likes of Guru Dan Inosanto and Sebak Taky Kimura, Sifu Andy Kimura.
Jeet Kune Do was not the start of martial arts for Emil though, He had already been training in Tae Kwon Do since the age of 3 (in the WTF system). He started under his uncle Armen Martirossian who is a 7th degree black belt. Emil is now a 5th degree black belt and also trains in the ITF system (in which he has a 1st degree black belt) Emil has trained in many more martial arts styles; Such as Kung Fu, 5 Animal Style, Choy Li Fut, Jiu-Jitsu, Western boxing, Thai-boxing, Filipino knife-defence, Street fighting and Chinese Kick boxing.
