Upon starting school, teachers said that Scott was unlikely to succeed at anything. From an early age, he became “legally” blind due to myopia and eventually Thygeson’s disease. He spent his youth crippled in pain with what doctors could only describe as Osteochondrosis disease, shredding the connective tissue throughout his joints and weakening the development of his growth plates. When he first began “mirror-image” writing, he was labeled as “retarded” by under educated teachers from his suffering an array of learning disabilities such as dyslexia. But as Scott will say, these “defects” were a blessing which allowed him to see, feel and think about the world in a wonderfully unique way.
Despite incredible obstacles, his trek across the world learning alternative methods of health improvement led him to become a USA National Sambo Team Coach and Champion earning him the former USSR’s highest athletic distinction: “Honourable Master of Sport.” His personal success led him to become subject matter expert for members of the Ultimate Fighting Championship®, the National Hockey League®, National Football League® and Major League Baseball®. Despite mental obstacles, he currently serves on Graduate Faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University and has earned his membership into Mensa® – the International High IQ Society.
His love for helping others improve their quality of movement, health and life was born out of his need to learn each remedial step, of never being able to take for granted what came naturally to everyone else. But due to poor nutrition, conditioning and aging, now children and seniors alike suffer pain similar to what Scott encountered and overcame. Once an adjunct Professor of Physical Education for Penn State University, his programs were originally designed to prevent accelerating aging of joint and connective tissues, and to give people of even Scott’s genetic challenges, access to the physical and psychological mastery which can only be described as “flow.”
Scott, ironically, became a keynote speaker for the genius organization Mensa, and his acclaimed TEDx talk challenges the notion of “learning disabilities” through the creative genius of alternative learning styles.
Using his “unique neurological wiring” to create innovative health programs, he was named one of the Top 25 Trainers in the world by Men’s Fitness Magazine, “World’s Smartest Workout” Coach by Men’s Health Magazine, and one of the seven most influential martial art teachers of the 21st century by Black Belt Magazine.
He was named an adjunct instructor for the U.S. Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, and lecturer for the State and Local Law Enforcement Training Symposium. His training systems have been used by more than 50,000 federal agents through the US Customs and Border Protection Advanced Training Center and the US Marshals Service Academy.
Scott has been a featured speaker at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival, the National Strength Conditioning Association and many more.
Scott has now taken his success in martial art, fitness and yoga off the mat and into the classrooms, as an international speaker advocating for children and adults facing labels of learning difficulties, facing the ravages of obesity, the trials of post-traumatic stress, the dangers of bullyism and the challenges of accelerated aging in joints and soft tissue.
Try this, its fun, challenging and greatly improves agility/ flexibilty and mobility.
