Ton was curious about costume design from his early childhood. So, he started to design child costumes for his friends.

Since childhood, Ton was taught to be tough by his father. He did a lot of training during his early days. It was his good luck; he was born into a wealthy family, and that’s why he could join various training camps.

His friend, Kevin Landry, introduced him to the professional match, and he later joined wrestling to start a professional career.

Costume Designing
