The Golden Fist Way: “Training with a purpose.”
“Real training should have a purpose. We train not only to get in great shape, but to enhance our mind, our energy, our confidence and to uncover our innate self-protection skills.”
– Jonny Blu, Founder and CEO of Golden Fist Gear/Golden Fist Training Method
“I developed the Golden Fist Training Method based on the core energetic and structural training that I learned from my 30+ years of studying and teaching Core System Shaolin Kung Fu/Kenpo Karate, along with Mok Ga/Monk Fist, Tai Chi and Qi Gong, under the guidance of my Grandmaster Carl Totton. My primary goal with GFTM is to use key aspects of my martial arts training and combine them with my love for physical fitness in order to reach people who want learn self-defense and fighting skills, while getting into peak physical and mental condition.”
