I was bullied and teased a
lot as a kid through every level of school, until I started in martial arts when I was 15.
I still got teased but I handled it differently from there on out and never looked back.
I’ve never really fit in and still feel like I don’t fit in as I’m not your typical guy.
I don’t watch sports, drink alcohol, smoke, or do drugs.
I actually have a good sense of direction but more than willing to stop and ask for directions which many guys won’t do.
I work out 4 days a week and can hold my breath for almost 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on a good day, and I like doing laps underwater instead of on top.
I was saved from drowning in a pool when I was a kid, then later on in life I saved 3 people from drowning.
I’ve been in a fair share of emergency crises situations and found myself heading toward the problem instead away from it.
I’ve learned many things in life but never claim to be a know-it-all, I just know a lot about what I teach in my books but there’s always room to grow.
I don’t like bullies and I don’t like seeing people get picked on or taken advantage of.
These are just some of the reasons I spent 3 1/2 years putting a 360 page (50 chapter) book together called “Situational Awareness 101” (Because What You Don’t Know “CAN” Hurt You!)
I have an extremely diverse background that has afforded me the opportunity to pass on pertinent and useful information to the people I come in contact with.
I’ve worked in law enforcement, asset protection, owned a martial arts school, EMT certified, rescue diver certified, proficient with most fire arms, martial arts weapons, weapons of opportunity, archery, outdoor enthusiast, author of 3 books, and a motivational speaker.
I have some college but most of my training has been specialty training towards a specific skill as opposed to a general one.
I like sharing with people in general the things I’ve done right in my life; but more importantly the things I’ve done wrong.
I like teaching people how to protect themselves not just physically but mentally by way of being more proactive than reactive.
You’ll find throughout life that your mindset before something happenswill make the difference in what you do and realizing what your options really are in time of need.
I’m currently working on an outline to do seminars (and possibly videos) for Situational Awareness.
The seminars will be geared towards teaching people how to look at situations differently they may encounter, and how they deal with them.
I’m also looking to publish another book by the end of the year on Firearms.
