What I Like to talk About

You may ask yourself: "what can a comedy sword-fighting stuntman do for me? " (Bet you've never asked yourself that before.) Let me ask you a couple of questions. Do you want to awaken the "inner action hero" in your audience so they they will be empowered to achieve more both personally and professionally? Do you want to deliver an event that unifies your team and gives them proven skills for peak performances all while having a great time (With NO POWERPOINT!

Corporate Action Hero programs include:

  • FUN
  • Interaction
  • A completely different experience
  • Real world skills for self motivation and achievement
  • Bullwhips....no really Bullwhips.
  • Nunchucks...again really nunchucks... cool.
  • Did I mention... NO POWERPOINT?


What I can do for you:

Using bullwhips, nunchucks, and world-class comedy, I will deliver a program that delivers the five key steps I used to get out of bed after my spine separated leaving me unable to walk. I went on to become a Stuntman, Fight Director,and comedian who performed over 4000 live comedy sword-fighting shows (including more than 100 on the front lines of Iraq and Afghanistan six USO tours.) I will tailor my proven material to meet the goals you have set for your event. All of my programs are interactive and will culminate with one of your audience members, in under five minutes, learning to crack the bullwhip and hit targets I will hold in my hand!!

My Background

~ Michael Leone, Widget Financial

John’s background in peak performances, stems from his work as a fight director and stunt coordinator for stage and film as well as his work for the military. His ability to engage individuals, unite teams, and drive change was instrumental in increase profitability of three regional theme parks by more than 60% in under six months of his direction.

During this time, John was also a professional comedian who brought his unique entertainments to bear for our military on six USO tours to the front lines of both Iraq and Afghanistan. Inspired by his work with the military, John felt he had to find deeper meaning in his work, and began focusing on helping others reach their chosen potentials. This new direction led him to become a college professor at Oberlin College in Ohio. 

While teaching at Oberlin, John's fascination with personal development led him to Study the neuroscience of performance. He developed peak performance protocols based upon the fight or flight response called the “Five F Protocols.”

Based upon the primal reactions of the fight or flight response, the “Five F Protocols,” have proven over the years to drastically reduce learning curves and all but eliminate self defeating thoughts that hinder performance.
