After years of studying the body, mind, and spirit there is only 1 thing I am absolutely certain of: I have no idea what I am talking about. I am totally making everything up and am way more of an artist and creator than I am an authority on science and reality.

But maybe that is a good thing?


Here’s the “Truth”

Despite the fact that I have been a student of life since I was born, a student of the art of skillful living ever since I started karate at age 6, even though I’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars over the last 14 years traveling the world and studying with some of the most highly respected strength coaches and fitness trainers in the world, even though I have 13 fitness certifications and counting, even though I am lineage holder of the Dragon Gate School of Taoist Alchemy and am a devout disciple of a living realized master for over 6 years, despite the fact that I am a dedicated student and teacher of the human body, exercise science, eastern spirituality, Taoist arts, meditation, shamanism, Kung Fu, Ninjitsu, and yoga, the only thing I can assure you of is what has worked for me.

I have no idea what will work for you.

What I do know is who I am and what I stand for.  And perhaps, by sharing my path and self-understanding, you can learn something about yourself and maybe even discover who you really are too.

I know nothing about Ninjas, exercise, fitness, spirituality, and what it will take for you to become who you were born to be.  I can only talk about who I am, my personal experiences, and my path to becoming and belonging, in hope that it guides you to find your own path to becoming your very own super hero, the best version of yourself.

Personal Accountability Is the Bedrock of the Ninja Path

By engaging with you are taking full responsibility for your life and actions and their inevitable consequences.  Actually, you are doing that just by waking up, getting out of bed, and making decisions (taking action) or not making decisions (the action of in-action), whether you realize it and accept that responsibility or not.

You’d be smart to consult a doctor before doing any exercise or following any of the humble advise offered above, you’d be wise to consult your inner guru, your instincts and intuition and gut, and honor your inner sceptic before accepting any of the information that is offered through TrainDeep.

Ultimately, all I can do is sing my truth and hope a note or two vibrates your heart.  I take precisely zero responsibility for your actions, results, progress, process, and ultimate destiny.  I am not responsible for your understanding, and I am not responsible for your confusion, that’s how much I respect and believe in you and your power and freedom, I am absolutely powerless in the face of it.

That being said, if you choose to learn from my example, that is your choice and I respect it as such.  In that case, may we walk the path as equals. and learn from each other.

If there is anything that truly helps you on this Jedi Fitness Temple website, it is thanks to the living wisdom of my Grand Master, his graceful embodiment of limitlessness, and his generous, patient, supremely humbling influence in my life.  Anything that sucks you can attribute directly to me – or more likely you!
