Today our expert guest is Brannon Beliso, the owner of One Martial Arts and the creator of One Merit Badges and Excellent Kids, two internationally distributed children’s life skills education systems. Brannon is dedicated to helping people live their best life and reach their full potential through learning, living, and growing.
Brannon was first introduced to martial arts by his father back in 1967, when he was only five years old, and that decision has had a profound impact on his life. “I was exposed to Eastern philosophies of self-discipline and the balance of mind, body, and spirit at a very early age, and all of that has shaped and served me throughout my lifelong journey of self-discovery to be a better version of myself.”
Brannon shares this journey in his book, Live Learn Grow: Lessons of a Reluctant Tiger, and as you’ll hear in this episode, there were a lot of ups and downs: Growing up poor, child abuse, foster care, becoming a martial arts champion, living as a rockstar in the Philippines, and how he ultimately found happiness.
By reading the book and learning more about his raw and tumultuous story, Brannon hopes others will learn how to find their happiness on purpose, too.
