The sports career of Marek Piotrowski was just as spectacular as his fall. The USA Champion and three time the World Champion in kick-boxing lost everything important to him in short time. He had a career breakdown, experienced health, family and financial problems. Yet due to his worldly wisdom and the strength of character he didn’t surrender. He came back to Poland and now he is realizing his passions in other fields.
