My Approach TO PHYSICAL, MENTAL, & EMOTIONAL SELF-MASTERY

B.A.Y.O.N.I.K.S. Methodology

B.A.Y.O.N.I.K.S. ™ online coaching is a physical conditioning program, personal development blueprint, lifestyle design map, and self-defense system all rolled into one. It is a process of mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness conditioning which is a continuum flow of applied biomechanics, mental peak performance conditioning, visualization, affirmation, spoken incantation, nutritional health, and high standards of physical fitness. It recognizes that human beings seek the highest tranquil peace and stillness, yet prepares human beings for the most rigorous or chaotic physical challenges in everyday life, sport, or combat.

Evaluation & Assessment

We use video and photo to capture your exact physical aesthetics, form, limitations, and movement patterns in real-time from Day 1 and use these as a basis to view improvements on Day 30, Day 60, and Day 90. Physical tracking and measurement are of utmost importance because they set your mind up and frame your focus for Transformation. Each step of the way, all you can do is focus on daily actions. It is nice to be able to see progress when you come back to the original photos and videos. We use the Warrior Wheel of Well-Being to map imbalances and help you implement a program that is custom designed to facilitate your evolution.

The 8 Pillars of B.A.Y.O.N.I.K.S. ™

Bodyweight Strength and Resistance

Bodyweight calisthenics teaches you how to develop your own bodyweight movement strength and routines. Calisthenics is a form of anaerobic and aerobic exercise consisting of a variety of simple, often rhythmical, movements, generally using multiple equipment or apparatus. Calisthenics when performed vigorously and with variety can benefit both muscular and cardiovascular fitness, in addition to improving psychomotor skills such as balance, agility, timing, tempo, intensity, and coordination. Calisthenics also prepare one to control his or her body weight in relation to others for self-defense purposes including mixed martial arts and grappling.

Awareness & Mindfulness

Awareness: Mindset, Meditation, Concentration, & Focus. All these teach us how to cultivate mental presence. Awareness is the state or ability to perceive, feel, or be conscious of events, objects, or sensory patterns fully in the present moment. In this level of consciousness, sensory data can be confirmed by an observer without necessarily implying understanding. It is the state or quality of being aware of something. In biological psychology, awareness is defined as a human’s or an animal’s perception and cognitive reaction to a condition or event. This is the way of the peaceful warrior as described by Dan Millman to the gymnast. This form of consciousness is The Power of Now. Being in the present moment is also the way of the divine warrior, focusing wholly on one specific action and task at hand.

Yoga & Flexibility

Yoga (Sanskrit, Pāli: yóga) is a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline, originating in ancient India. The goal of yoga movements, or of the person practicing yoga, is the attainment of a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquility while meditating on Supersoul.[3] Supersoul is also represented by Vishnu: the All-Pervading essence of all beings, the master of—and beyond—the past, present, and future, one who supports, sustains, and governs the Universe and originates and develops all elements within. The more technical sense of the term “Yoga”, describes a system of meditation or contemplation with the aim of the cessation of mental activity and the attaining of a “supreme state.” It is also important to aid in breathing while maintaining posture, flexibility, mobility, pliability, suppleness, poise, and efficient movement.

Operational Readiness

Operational Readiness and Assurance is used extensively by the U.S. military, NASA, and the global finance sector, to name a few. Simply put, it can be used anywhere where a requirement for a certain level of assurance, that a given status or specified capability exists (or will exist, at a given point in time), is required. Operational readiness is defined by the military as “the state of preparedness of a unit…to perform the missions for which it is organized or designed.” What this means in B.A.Y.O.N.I.K.S. is to prepare your body to handle the demands it will face in whatever visions, missions, strategies, tactics, or plans you have, whether for work or play. In other words, if you have self-defense skills, are you physically able to perform them? In the army, readiness is closely associated with operational effectiveness, that is, with “the degree to which operational forces are capable of performing their assigned missions in relation to known enemy capabilities.” These definitions highlight two critical considerations implicit in the idea of operational readiness. First, readiness is relevant and measurable only in relation to the unit’s assigned mission. Obviously, if a unit has no mission, then there is nothing against which to assess readiness. If a unit has a very general mission, measurements of its standard of readiness can only be general. However, as the mission becomes more specific, so too does the assessment of readiness. Functional training and preparedness for skill activation set us up prepared for the missions we face in life.

Nutrition, Rest, & Recovery

Nutrition is the science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food in relation to the maintenance, growth, reproduction, health, and disease of an organism. It includes food intake, absorption, assimilation, biosynthesis, catabolism, and excretion. There are two main types of nutrients, macronutrients, and micronutrients. The three main categories of macronutrients include carbohydrates, protein, and fat. The two types of micronutrients are vitamins and minerals, and these are extra molecules that cells need to make energy. Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your nutrition can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease, stroke, and cancer), and promote your overall health. Recovery, Sleep, Hydration, and Supplementation, all work hand in hand with optimum Nutrition.

Integrated Movement

Integrated movement activation is a process of training the body as a whole moving organic machine, a system of torque, spirals, bows, pulleys, and levers, that are all to be coordinated and integrated to create functional strength, synergy, and harmony. Since our bodies are designed to move with purpose, it is imperative that we prepare the body for activity this way. Whole body movements, which require strength as a skill prepare us for the variety of functional demands we must use with our bodies in real life. The mind produces thought, thought produces emotion, and emotion creates “motivation”, and motivation creates movement and emotion, which all produce awareness of who we are and what we are doing in a cyclical process. Integrated movement activation is about neuro-muscular  “teamwork.” Tri-phasic EMG research has revealed that as movement occurs about a joint, the agonists produce the force for the movement to occur, while the antagonists absorb the force from the movement (Agonist/Antagonist Cooperation). Animal movement, mobility drills, dynamic flows, and Kettlebell movements also involve deceleration demands, which enhance performance and prevent injuries. 

Kicking (Hip Mobility)

Hip Mobility -The most important reason to improve kicking ability is to mobilize your hip joints, the second most mobile joint in your body. The hip joint, scientifically referred to as the acetabular-femoral joint (art. coxae), is the joint between the femur and acetabulum of the pelvis, and its primary function is to support the weight of the body in both static (e.g. standing) and dynamic (e.g. walking or running) postures. The hip joints are the most important part of retaining balance. The pelvic inclination angle, which is the single most important element of human body posture, is adjusted at the hips. In combat sports and hand-to-hand combat, a kick is a physical strike using the foot, leg, or knee (the latter is also known as a knee strike). This type of attack is used frequently, especially in stand-up fighting. Kicks play a significant role in many forms of martial arts, such as Taekwondo, Karate, Pankration, Kung fu, Vovinam, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Capoeira, Silat, and Kalarippayattu. The act of kicking in general is a universal form of human aggression. The same movement is also used in non-offensive contexts, e.g. a kick to propel an object such as a soccer ball, or football, or a kicking movement without touching anything, e.g. as a dance move. Some, like Bruce Lee, have commented that the leg, thanks to its size and weight, is a more powerful weapon than the arm. Because the leg is longer than the arm, kicks tend to keep an opponent at a distance and to surprise with their range. Many have reported successfully using kicks in real-life self-defense situations, intended primarily for self-defense and combat, incorporating kicks is an important part of any full body routine.

Striking (Shoulder Mobility)

Shoulder Mobility – The most important reason to improve striking ability is to mobilize your shoulder joints, the most mobile joint in your body. The glenohumeral joint, (from ancient Greek glene, eyeball, puppet, doll + -oid, ‘form of’, + Latin humerus, shoulder) or shoulder joint, is a multiaxial synovial ball and socket joint and involves articulation between the glenoid fossa of the scapula (shoulder blade) and the head of the humerus (upper arm bone). Due to the very limited interface of the humerus and scapula, it is the most mobile joint of the human body and must be strengthened, mobilized, and made flexible for all the stresses you put on this joint throughout your daily life. A strike is an attack using your arms with an inanimate object, such as a weapon, or with a part of the human body intended to cause an effect upon an opponent such as a defense or to simply cause harm to an opponent. There are many different varieties of strikes. An attack with the hand closed into a fist is commonly called a punch. It is through our preparation in shoulder mobility exercises, scapular mobility, and in strengthening the muscles surrounding the scapula that we ensure lifelong shoulder health, and maximum striking capabilities.
