Hello and welcome to the Art of Heart. My name is Johnny Medero and this is my story. Born and raised in Queens, NY from 1978-1996 was an adventure and at times terrifying. Needless to say I learned a lot from the streets of NY and as the saying goes “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere”. One thing that I hold valuable as I was growing up was you had to have thick skin, common sense and Urban Survival. These three traits molded me to the person that I am today but with a few Hard Knocks in the School of Life. All in all, as I got quote-unquote matured in life, I soon realized how important it is to know yourself, your thoughts and be mindful of your surroundings (people, places, etc). In my pursuit of Martial Arts and all it’s intricacies, I realized that the thing we must guard the most is our hearts. Henceforth in the Home page we have the verse from Proverbs 4:23. It’s my life verse and it’s where the Art of Heart comes from. If you would bare with me I would like to share my life’s story. I promise you that it’ll hit a nerve and it hopes you can see how my life was ultimately changed in pursuit of peace, joy and happiness. If you are on this page it is not a coincidence and I pray you will find Whom you seek and your questions be answered as to why you are here and your purpose in life. Let’s do this………
