Randy King is an accomplished, impactful, internationally acclaimed mentor, public speaker, and author. He has a hunger to demystify the psychology of violence through evidence-based research. He is the host of the Randy King Live podcast which is a debate-style program centered around martial arts and defensive tactics systems.
A life-long martial artist, Randy embraced traditional training, having earned 2 black belts in different disciplines, including a 4th-degree in Modern Arnis. In 2002, Randy’s perspective and confidence were shattered when he survived a stabbing while attempting to deescalate a violent situation while he was employed at an Edmonton club as Head of Security. Randy realized that the old ways did not serve as a functional platform for self-defence and he became determined to redefine the self-defence industry.
His progressive and innovative methods give people a realistic, easy to digest set of tools to help identify conflict, the communication around conflict, and if need be, employ physical techniques to escape and evade an attack.
