Kevin Sedwick was born into a single-parent household in the Ukraine, in which he was raised and guided by his mother. Due to the unstable government of his homeland at the time, both Kevin and his mother were in constant fear for their safety. Because of this, they decided to begin training in various styles of striking and grappling martial arts while he was very young.
When a power plant in a nearby city had a melt-down, the two decided it was time for a change of scenery. It was then that they moved to the suburbs of Detroit, in the USA. There they made a new life for themselves, both continuing to train in the fighting arts in case they would one day need to defend themselves.
