By his own admission, Jim Bouchard should have been dead or in jail - many times over.

Through martial arts, Jim transformed himself from a two-time college dropout and drug abuser to successful entrepreneur, author and international speaker...from "loser to leader".​

In over 25 years of teaching Jim has helped hundreds of others transform themselves into Black Belts, and thousands more discover their best selves by learning how to think like one.

He's tough––yet compassionate. People come to him willingly because they know he cares. They know that helping them become their best is his highest priority.

Jim has no “secrets.” He shares everything he's learned, and everything he continues to learn about being a compassionate, courageous and effective leader––someone who makes a real difference in the lives of the people they serve.

Jim is a 2004 inductee to the U.S. Martial Arts Hall of Fame and was twice featured in "Inside Kung Fu"magazine. He has been teaching and practicing martial arts for more than 30 years.

​Jim is a volunteer mentor for incarcerated youth, an obsessive golfer and surf guitar player. In 2016 Jim was nominated to run for Congress.
