In this episode I have the honor of visiting with 5th Dan in Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Karate, 1st Dan in Shiho Karano Ryu Ju-Jitsu, Krav Maga and Combat Shooting Instructor, certified John Maxwell Leadership speaker/coach/teacher, and President of the International Martial Arts Council (IMAC), John Terry.

Welcoming, energetic and clearly passionate about leadership, John Terry is actively making a difference in the martial arts community by championing an organization that brings together some of the best leaders in the world from virtually every martial arts style that exists.

As a parent, getting to listen and understand more about IMAC’s origination, current state, and goals for the future, as well as hearing some of the challenges of running a prestigious annual event, matters because it’s an event my son and I will likely continue to participate in, so it’s very comforting to know the leader is not only approachable, but completely volunteer run and committed to excellence.
