Abraham migrated from Iran with his family due to the revolution. He developed a love and passion for Martial Arts—particularly, for traditional Japanese Karate. This art taught him discipline and focus at an early age. At 13, he was awarded the gold medal, the highest honor/achievement, from the United States National Karate Championship. Until age 21, Abraham kept that title. For 10 years, Abraham worked as head Martial Arts Instructor. A respected and qualified leader, he taught over 3,500 students in Southern California. His parents divorced when he was 15. The years that followed propelled him to take great responsibility. He retired his mother early, and inspired his brother to follow his footsteps in the financial world. Abraham supports numerous charitable organizations such as the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, Yachad, Chabad, Congregation Ohel Moshe, and Kolel. Abraham lives in Los Angeles, California with his family.
