developing your superpower

Last week I sent you an email each day with an excerpt from my book reference one of the 6 foundational Blackbelt Superpowers in each: Focus, Respect, Discipline, Confidence, Gratitude and Vision.

I call these foundational superpowers because everyone needs to hone them for success in every area of life and they are the fundamentals that we instill in future Blackbelts at KMMA.

I also write about these foundational superpowers in the first six chapters of my new book, Developing Your Superpowers.

But in chapter seven, and with my students at KMMA, the next step is helping people discover their unique Superpowers to fulfill their unique calling.

I believe that we all have certain gifts and proclivities that are there to equip us to live our purpose.

It’s our job to discover these, develop them and then share our gifts with the world.


Our Mission at KMMA is Prepare To Live & Empower To Lead.

The first part referes to our equipping students with fitness, real world self defense and the foundational powers to survive and thrive the challenges of life.

The latter refers to empowering each individual to fulfill their purpose, live their call and lead others to do the same.

It’s our calling.
