living life as a martial artist

my philosophy

The essence of why I offer movement and martial arts as a service is that I want to help people get in touch with their bodies, have a better relationship with it and express themselves in meaningful ways... not just through the martial arts.

Our bodies store our joys and traumas. It’s the most fundamental way we can express ourselves as human beings — even more basic than the spoken word.

Being able to fully experience our emotions or authentically articulate the life force swimming through us is the North Star. That’s what I want to give people: entry points into the the flow state and closer alignment to their true nature.

I want to show everyone what an amazing organism our body is. When our relationship with our body is strengthened, it becomes a tremendous source of flow and enjoyment.

And if you’re going to be in that body for the rest of your “life,” then it’s best you start getting in better touch with it. Investing in yourself should always be a priority.

Play. Explore. Discover.

That's how we get there.

my APPROACH

I take all of my clients through a process in which I evaluate and educate them about the "meat machine" they’ve spawned into.

Once I get an idea of their Body IQ, then we can chart the journey.

I teach the clients these fundamental topics:

Alignment

  • How quick are you to learning something and doing it? (Body IQ and balance)

  • How good are you at "feeling" and articulating what you are feeling?

  • How good is your injury and tightness awareness?

Application

  • How well do you move your body in space?

  • How well do you move your body in relation to objects, both stationary and moving?

  • How much control do you have over your body and manipulating tension and relaxation?

Flow

  • Trusting your body's natural intuition

  • Entry points and triggers to tap in

  • Learning how to problem-solve on your own

  • How to make the body take shape to be the best tool for the job

Tool Box

My hands-on teaching style generally goes like this:

I teach you a set of tools you can put in your "Tool Box", then I put you in scenarios for you to play, explore, discover, and eventually apply the idea and technique in a live setting.

At that point, repetition is the master.

But before that, we must discover together.

"Jon’s lessons apply to life as much as they do boxing... I felt as If I was getting a 2-in-1 crash course.

This was one of the best investments I made in myself all year. I highly recommend Jon for anyone seeking growth and inspiration in and out of the box!"

“As soon as his students walk in the door, all he has to do is take one look at them and know where they’re at that day.

If I tell him five times over, 'I don’t get it,' he will explain it to me five times over — a different way each time. He won’t give up unless the student gives up. He won’t.”

"If you train with Jonathan expect to have a total life transformation that begins on the mat/in the ring. He will increase your Fight and Life IQ.

No matter your experience level if you go in to train with an attitude of playfulness and willingness you will come out a better version of yourself than when you came in."

"I’m a visual person, so it’s better if you were to demonstrate to me, however, there’s different people that you have to verbalize it to, and JonMac is one of the people who can do both.”

"... but he doesn’t do the work for you.  Instead, he helps you to take an honest look at yourself, and helps you become aware of what is already there and how it’s affecting your life so that you can ask yourself honestly what it is you’re looking for and what you can do to attain it."
