"From hunger, starvation and suicide to peak living:  How the ultimate loser turned his life around and you can too!"

"Originally from the Midwest of the USA (Indianapolis) - I walked away from a life of stress, violence, and despair in the post NAFTA-GATT "rust belt" to better myself and change my life, and - I've never looked back.

Since then, I've spent my entire adult life living and training with the greatest masters of martial arts and physical power, leadership, strategic thinking and meditation - throughout Asia.

For the past years I've been living, training and teaching in Myanmar (formerly Burma), where I currently live with my wife, Margaret and my daughter, Abigail."

Now, I strive to help others who are dealing with life's struggles to help them become their highest and best selves and achieve their dreams."

A life dedicated to personal transformation - and now dedicated to  YOUR TRANSFORMATION - The highlights...

A Passage To India...

“Simply put: ‘Distilled Eastern wisdom delivered by a creative and pragmatic western mind.’. Jon breaks down Eastern fighting, leadership, strategy & meditation into an easy to understand and simple to apply way with a modern, Western way of thinking.

Althought I have been practicing martial arts for more than 15 years, the 2nd chapter was an eye-opener to me, not to mention the last chapter – which I wish I had read long before.

I encourage businessmen to check his views on strategy to give you an additional edge for your arsenal.”

“This book [Mastering The Four Elements] puts together so many things no one else is putting together .

I have studied many of the same books that are referenced in this book , yet I could not connect the internal and external applications to good use as this man has.

If you are ready to put attention to your training and become more aware and understand more, use this book.  Thank you Jon”

Thick Black Theory is a unique work on the cultivation of power and effectiveness. Its frank, amoral language conveys that it is a neutral tool. It is not a vector; it has force, but no direction.

The strengths of Jon Anxin’s translation of “Thick Black Theory” are that it is honest, without resorting to sugar-coating in order to please (i.e. Thick Face), and that it exists within the context of all his other work. It answers questions, and brings up others, and these Jon addresses in his larger body of free material on his site. While the amoral nature of Thick Black may be unfavorable to some readers, the message rings absolutely true, and comfort can be had in the fact that Jon Anxin elsewhere teaches about power in the context of morality.

I highly recommend this book. It was and remains an important work, and Jon Anxin provides the context and instruction for its positive application. Look into him, you won’t regret it.”

“I had heard about “Thick Black Theory” from another success book that I respect (“Thick Face, Black Heart“), so I had immediate curiosity when I heard about it.

Nothing quite prepared me for the succinct communication of Thick Black Theory, the immediate applicability, and, as I thought about it more and more, the practicality as I thought back and saw it in use over and over and over in history and in my past interactions with other people.

This is simply one of the works that any educated person should be reading to understand the way individual interactions play out and societies work. Simply brilliant.”
