One of my best friends, and most trusted confidants, has been with me since CST Alpha. And he and I share more than just physical culture, we share a strong martial heritage. When you see, Brandon, you know intuitively that he has "it" - that ephemeral virtue that defies description which only those who can carry the mantle of responsibility emanate.
Over the years of evolution of RMAX into the "think tank" it is - FlowFighting® has blossomed into a multi-disciplinary warehouse of skills, all within a very specific training paradigm called the Three Dimensional Performance Pyramid.
Brandon's wide font of knowledge, deep development of talent, and personal accountability for leading from the front compelled me to reconsider the organization of FlowFighting®, and its need for someone to take it where I cannot. My international responsibilities with our various global initatives demand too much of my consolidated focus, and FlowFighting® should not suffer neglect.
I have stepped back as Director of FlowFighting® and with the unanimous support of the RMAX faculty, appoint Brandon Jones as successor to our system. I shall remain active as an advisor, present at events and participatory in design elements. But Brandon is taking the lead now.
Please join me in congratulating one of my best friends, as one of our leaders chooses to become even more personally responsible for our continued growth individually and collectively.
