Why do we call Oscar a martial geek?
When Oscar is in a “right mood”, he could train hours after hours under the hot sun, he could train the whole night without any sleep, … he could knock on my door in the midnight just because he had some questions of his Xingyiquan training which he could not figure out (can’t you wait until the next morning?),… the list goes on and on.
