He had been training and learning many styles of combat since he was six, and his trainer is the only sensei he knows: his father. This firm training has given him experience and shown him to respect others, even when he has lost. Andrew is known as a cool and level headed teen who seems to be incapable of being scared of anything except swords, which when he was eight accidentally cut himself while practicing. He believes in fighting fairly and has joined the show to be challenged and IF eliminated for fair reasons, he'll leave with his head held high. However, Andrew take things too seriously sometimes.
