What is the driving force that motivates someone to sacrifice everything; perhaps even their very existence, and climb into a ring with the intention of overpowering another human being? Aficionados of the fight game agree that champions are not born – they are made of the vigor, the intensity, the drive, and the scarring of deeply embedded life experience. And not all champions are driven by a vow taken as a ten-year-old. Scott Ashley was a child who innocently aspired to learn karate at this tender age – but when his father beat him mercilessly, and his mother left, he made this vow his singular focus. Scott never forgot that night with his parents, and from that day forward, nothing could stop him from thriving through martial arts. In ROAD TO THE TITLE; Scott shares intimate details of the unique experiences that formed his insatiable desire for recognition, and he leads the reader on a journey spanning three decades; originating in 1973 at the Rugby Theater in East Flatbush, and culminating in an Atlantic City Casino, when he becomes a world kickboxing champion. The story envelopes the reader into Scott’s adventures working as a shoeshine boy; his struggles to overcome the chaotic dismantling of his family; his independence at age 15, his experiences working as a teen-age bartender in Manhattan; and his relentless pursuit of a championship, which leads to his prize-fighting escapades in; Canada, France, the Ukraine, and Atlantic City, where his dream comes to fruition.

About the Author:

Scott Ashley was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1963. Enamored with Bruce Lee as a child, Scott started karate training on his 16th birthday. A product of a broken and scattered family, and raised by an abusive father, Scott made martial arts the singular focus of his life. Thriving on competition, Scott entered the world of boxing/kickboxing. He trained in New York’s world-famous Gleason’s and Gramercy Gyms and was coached by Fred Corritone, Al Gavin, Al Shevlin and boxing icon, Angelo Dundee. During his prize-fighting career, Scott competed in 24 kickboxing and 17 boxing bouts. After capturing the Super Welterweight World Kickboxing Title, Scott wrote the book “Kickboxing: A Champions Guide to Training” (Llumina Press 2009). “Road to the Title: Memoir of a Champion” (Amazon Kindle/Create Space 2012), documents Scott’s perseverance to rise above adversity and accomplishing his childhood dream. Scott has five children, lives with his wife of twenty years, works in Law Enforcement, and operates a karate program for children in Coral Springs, Florida.
