White is a martial artist in eight different styles: Shōtōkan, Goju-Ryu (for which he studied under Master Eddie Morales where he learned to sharpen his Goju karate technique), Taekwondo, Kobudō, Tang Soo Do, Wushu, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Kyokushin, with a specific focus in Kyokushin Karate (although his style incorporates aspects of many different martial arts forms).
White started training in the martial arts at the age of seven in Jujutsu.
He next took up Shōtōkan and moved on to other styles later.
White is a former special education teacher and taught students with behavioral problems for three years.
He cites his history in education as the reason why, despite his personal love for the music genre on “a lot of levels”, he cannot “in good [conscience]” have a positive opinion on hip hop or “excuse some of [its] pervasive and destructive elements”, mainly due to his experience with youngsters who had difficulty seeing the difference between it and real life.
