Raz is available for speaking events on The Art of Mental Toughness.

What drives world class athletes and martial arts masters to be the best in the world and achieve mastery in their art? Mental toughness, overcoming fears, the ability to adapt to change, determination, and the ability to perform under pressure?

When high performing individuals do their best work under pressure situations it is often called a flow state. The martial arts teaches one how to achieve this high state of performance through its training and principles: discipline, focus, humility,  and perseverance. Doing so helps individuals not only stay calm under pressure but provides them with great self-awareness and inner peace. All these attributes can help employees, students, and people from all walks of life reach their full potential.

There are lots of parallels between success in athletics, martial arts and your personal life. Raz shares his experience as a high level black belt competitor in martial arts and how it has not only shaped his success but his father overcame extreme financial challenges.

This speech will inspire you to take action with your life, reduce your stress, filling your life we inner peace. If you are struggling to maintain focus and want to reach your highest potential, he will help guide you in your journey.

Raz is available to speak corporate events, annual meetings, sports teams, and schools. He has spoken at major conferences, corporations, government agencies, public schools in Canada and abroad.

I did indeed find the information helpful and was most interested in: How to approach a handshake so as to ensure the receiving partner is given to understand that we are equal. That a first impression is non-verbally made within 7 seconds; and Where to position one’s eyes depending on the receiving partner. With many thanks and kind regards. , Alison Forster
