Up to 6 years, Mark lived in Hawaii with his grandparents. At the age of 6 years he moved to his parents in the U.S.. His parents - teaching kung-fu. His father was a successful school in Denver, Colorado, and taught so far.

Capoeira - Brazilian martial art, which is based on African traditions. Established as a weapon and as art, capoeira has appeared in conditions of slavery and racism. The variety of movements, a cascade of shocks and departures, acrobatics immediately attracts attention, but capoeira is also a tradition, spirituality and wisdom. Capoeira Master transmits the student not only a set of movements, but also the world of music, rituals, respect, and the accumulated knowledge of generations of masters of capoeira. As something more than a martial art or dance, for many capoeira is just a way of life.

He visited Hong Kong and China, within one month of living in Nepal. Mark also likes to surf, play the drums and took lessons to play guitar.
