Rick Matz

An instructor I once trained under for a short time told me that he considered himself (as a full time aikido teacher) to be a professional athlete.

He was a full time fireman, who worked maybe 10 days a month (but 24 hour days). The rest of his time was spent teaching at his school or on his own training, which also included the gym, his diet, etc.
