The Art of Self-Reliance is forging your own path, on your own terms. But the path is a difficult one – made easier by exploring how others have succeeded in directing their own lives. With their help and inspiration, your path to self-reliance can become a reality.
I come from a really tough background. Brought up on the South Side of Johannesburg in government housing, I survived intense bullying, and an alcoholic abusive mother. When I was 17, she kicked me out of the house in a drunken rage, and I found myself homeless, sleeping on the inner city streets of Johannesburg.
But, I rewrote my story. Through grit, a growth mindset, and the primal skillz development of my martial arts practice I built the skills of self-reliance and I forged a new path to success. Today I teach others how they too can learn take on the martial arts of everyday through the Art of Self Reliance.
In addition, I get to explore with my guests through the Art of Self Reliance PodClass, how they achieved their best self in spite of the obstacles they may have faced in life.
