Presti began his martial arts journey July 1967 under Pat E. Johnson, formally of Niagara Falls, who introduced Presti to Norris in 1979. Since then, Presti has been a student of Norris.
Presti and Norris have bonded over the years. He has been trusted By Norris to be on the board of directors for about 16 years. Norris has a close relationship with his ranked black belts.
