A young man, by the name of Carlos Garcia, feels he is destined for greatness but has no way of reaching his long lost goals he had earlier in his life of boxing. He has a girlfriend and six year old son, whom give no support or tolerance to his dream of being a fighter. His life is at a downward spiral. He is then determined to change his life around but again falls short of his goal. Carlos finds a self-help book in a garbage can with no cover, no title, just a name of an author. The book teaches life lessons, power of the mind, and focus he incorporates in his life and in the ring. He is induced into a new reality, using his mind and body as one. Along his new journey, he enacts the help of his old coach, who is a raging alcoholic, and a few other friends willing to support him in his training. They begin to see what he can do and believe anything is possible, ultimately becoming the warrior within.

“True victory is to strike down and destroy the mind of doubt and conflict within you. Unless it is put into practice, you are no different than anyone else. Through practice this power and ability is added unto you.” ~ Morihei Ueshiba.
