When I was a kid I was very much alongside all of my grade 1 school buddies and fell in love with a little cartoon called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
It’s actually kind of the seed behind my obsession with Martial Arts… before Bruce Lee entered my view anyway 😉

As always I had a tonne of fun creating this. So thanks for checking it out and reading this blog post!
