Bill Frost was born as an identical twin on May 24th, 1976 in Virginia.

Prince, Alabama, Rick James, Stevie Nicks, Tanya Tucker, Charlie Daniels,
and many other great musical artists.
In 1980, at the age of four (4) years old, Bill began training in Chinese
Martial Arts (Shaolin Kung Fu/Wushu/Wing Chun) under Grand Master
Rusty Gray of Nashville, TN. He spent almost every day at the school
training after school hours and enjoyed travelling to Lexington, KY and
Chicago, IL whenever he could to further his training with other great
teachers to include John C. Y. Tsai, John Wing Loc Ng, and John Dufresne. Bill has been training in these Martial Arts systems ever since.
While in Junior High, Bill attended Apollo and was accepted into the Scholars (Honors) Program.

Bill met a professional magician by the name of Gary Thomas while in Junior High. Gary Thomas attended the same martial arts school that Bill did and the two would come to an agreement. Bill would train Gary privately in martial arts and Gary would teach Bill all the magic skills and tricks he knew. It was a deal that eventually led the two to create "The Magic and Martial Arts Show"; a kid show that they performed around the Nashville area. Bill has been practicing the art of magic ever since.
