This weekend just gone was the first Rock Your Mind, Body and Spirit event ever. We held it in Auckland and it was co hosted by Glen Levy – the most dangerous man on the planet. Glen was an absolute joy to work with and the feedback from the event has been exceptional. Some of the things we covered there, amongst Glen’s backflips, one handed handstand kicks and other athleticism were:
– Is history a lie. Who really did build the pyramids? What really was thier purpose
– Signs, simply things we see and take for granted, but have a very ancient message long forgotten
– The Kuji In. The 9 secret meridian points of the Ninja and how they are used to lose weight and gain insight
– The power of the five elements, water, fire, earth, air and void
It was a bit of a struggle filling the room given the current economic climate, but we did in the end with people registering even at 9pm the night before, but all was good. Glen was a consumate professional in all areas and the synergy created between himself and myself really seemed to flow. Their was real value and empowerment given to the participants, especially in a time where empowerment seems to be lacking in people’s lives.
One of the things that Glen taught which I had pretty much forgotten is the art of isometrics. This is basically getting fit through clenching. As the leading martial artist in the world you would expect Glen to be Bench Pressing or Running for miles. He doesn’t. He basically trains 10 hours a day just through isometrics. Even having a coffee in a cafe he is clenching his thighs or hist wrist. The world doesn’t notice but he is in full training. This was a great learning and I personally realised I still do this (it was something a friend and I used to practise at school). I just need to do it for places other than my upper torso, which is still in pretty good shape. My lower torso could do with some work. ha ha
So lessons for this week were:
Clench: It really works
Collaboration with respect delivers exceptional results.
