Producing Leaders


I love this quote from my friend John Maxwell.

We are studying his 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership in our Blackbelt Leadership program right now by the way.

We are starting with the first law next week and will continue through one a week for the next 21 weeks, in addition of course to all of the great leadership training that happens innately through our classes.


After all, we are a leadership development academy that also happens to teach the most practical self-defense in the world.


Back to the quote.

It is such a true and important principle.

You see, gathering followers, and then leaving them that way, helps no one.


The leadership in question, nor the organization nor the community is served well.

The follower least of all is served; for he or she will never know the empowerment of real leadership!

But in a leadership organization, the leader produces leaders who create leaders who create leaders……


The culture, accomplishment and impact of such a leadership organization is awesome!

I am proud that Krav Maga Martial Arts is such an organization and that we continue to grow better.


You can also create the same where you lead.

If you are in my program, ask me how.

I’d love to help you!


And if you’re not yet, let’s meet soon! 

You can also email me if it’s better for you.


Prepare To Live; Empower To Lead!
