Real Life, Real Stories… with Iain Abernethy

December 14, 2012

Iain AbernethyWhat I love about Iain’s story is how he gave up the day job and did the job of his dreams. In fact from an early age he made choices that meant he could do the thing he enjoyed most.

Iain Abernethy has been involved in the martial arts since childhood. Iain holds the rank of 6th Dan with the British Combat Association (one of the world’s leading groups for close-quarter combat, self-protection and practical martial arts), the English Karate Federation, and the British Karate Association. He is an author, globe-trotting teacher and podcaster.

His tells of the decision making process when it came to giving up the well paid job that would have lasted him a life. Taking calculated risks are risks worth taking he tells.

He talks self defence, having a positive mental strength, martial arts the things that in life that make it worth living. My favourite quote from him in the podcast is if tomorrow he meets St Peter at the pearly gates he can tell him that was no average life.

A rare insight to this world renowned martial artist makes great listening. Guaranteed.
