My goal is to help you find FLOW in all that you do, by exploring life through a variety of lenses.
Often in life, we find ourselves needing to ask: What's here now?
I don't claim to have the answers. In fact, the answers you seek are inside you. My job is to help you discover and excavate them so that you can align with your true essence and live a more empowered life.
Whether you're looking to sharpen a specific martial art, increase your fight IQ, or get more in-tune with your body, I can help.
I offer custom-tailored programs, including but not limited to:
All levels welcome.

JonMac enters the cage of his second pro-fight amped to prove his destiny as a world champion--he was born for this... or was he? A freak accident shatters his dreams, sending him on a spiritual journey within.
Exit The Dragon is a story of self-discovery; a tell-all tale of heartbreak and new beginnings. With words that cut into the marrow of your bones, stitched together with photos, videos, and illustrations, ETD creates the perfect combination of strikes to light up your soul.
If you’ve ever questioned who you are... or why you’re here… then this is for you.
"Jon has a knack with words, which made me feel throughout, I was reading poetry. I loved that. Jon opened a completely new world, Martial Arts, and I followed him step by step, kick by kick, punch after punch. I loved it.
Every teenager should read this book. As a school director, I should add a disclaimer that the vocabulary is not always appropriate."
"The raw honesty of his own struggles and fears allows the reader to not only fully immerse themselves in the story and the fight world of San Diego, but to also trust him and the message he is spreading.
Ego, finding your purpose, and following your heart despite outside influences are all themes covered in this book, which is why I would recommend it for anybody who is on their own journey of self-discovery, not just those involved in martial arts."
"Perhaps the most powerful aspect to this book is the sheer honesty with which the author shares his emotions both in victory and defeat. We often see our athlete heroes as unstoppable and fearless. It is unique to read about one feeling and being just as human as anyone else.
There were many times throughout the book where I stopped and said, "geez, this is me. He _gets_ me." I felt compelled to read it all in one night, but I'm sure that this is one I will re-read many times and take time to reflect."
"It's hard to put an exact category on the book because it touches so many levels. For me, it went beyond just a story of the author's struggle, but also defined and clarified some of my own. It was the push I needed to get myself aligned with more positive energy. I could say more, but I'd reveal far too much about the book!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU READ THIS!!!
P.S. a really cool touch is the Youtube videos that are cleverly matched to the story, and illustrations for each chapter."
