Taekwondo Champion's New Book Aims To Inspire People To Kick Start Their Lives

Good morning,
Grand Master Ewan Briscoe is a Taekwondo legend and a widely respected figure, youth leader and mentor in his community, with a long track record of supporting young people by giving them a way out of the gangs and violence that is so pervasive for so many teenagers on our inner-city streets today. Ewan has written a book that he hopes will help guide, inspire and showcase the work he's done over the years, but also open up the idea that if you find something you're truly passionate about you will be able to learn the lessons required to steer you on the right path - for many of his mentees that is Taekwondo but it could be football, drama, singing, athletics, painting...
Ewan teaches Taekwondo to children as young as four (with the right mindset and family support) and his Academy is going nationwide, with branches across the South of England. 
Ewan would like to invite you to the launch of his book, which will be full of action and surprises, at the Institute of Directors in Pall Mall on October 2nd 2017. For a press pass please get in touch so we can add you to the guest list. It is a ticketed event:
For press copies of the book - Kick Start Your Life, or to interview Ewan about his work with teenagers, his passion for Taekwondo, or to discuss editorial commissions please get in touch.
Kind regards,
Helen Lewis

Kick Start Your Life

By Grand Master Ewan C. Briscoe


[image]Grand Master Ewan Briscoe is a force to be reckoned with. Accolades include being British Taekwondo champion not once, not twice, but nine times; member of the 1987 European Championship winning taekwondo team; three times winner of the Combat Martial Arts Hall of Fame, and trainer of TV gladiators Cobra and Panther...Ewan Briscoe is the Founder of the successful Panther Taekwondo Academy, which operates schools across the South of England, teaching children as young as four the art of self-control, courtesy, perseverance, integrity, strength, resilience, responsibility, indomitable spirit and confidence.


Ewan's family has first-hand experience of the tragic impact that violence, gangs and bullying has on young people today. Regardless of upbringing, education or wealth, young people today - particularly in cities such as London where Ewan lives - are risking their lives by being in the ‘wrong place at the wrong time'. He has helped thousands of children by showing them that if they find something they're truly passionate about there is plenty to live for, myriad reasons to avoid the lure of gang culture and crime, and they can learn how to protect themselves. Beyond this, children through to young adults have a safe place to go outside of school and the home, and learn important lessons that will steer them on the right path through life.


His experience working with so many people at his Academy, mentoring, coaching, inspiring people of all ages and backgrounds, has led him to write this motivational book that will be equally well received by martial arts specialists as it will by teens, parents of young children to teenagers, teachers or trainers who seek inspiration to communicate more effectively with young people, even entrepreneurs and business men/women looking for that Kick-Start we all need from time to time, to get us back on the right track.


Ewan is on a mission - through his book, his Academy, his business mentoring and training and his self-defence courses, to help people of all ages and backgrounds to develop the inner and outer skills and strengths they need to face the challenges of day-to-day life and make a success of their lives. The book, and his wider work, aims to help people identify their true purpose in life, to never, ever give up, and to realise your potential.


This book is for you if:

  • You are becoming a parent, facing a ‘big' birthday, making huge changes in your life (such as divorce, moving to a new career, moving out of the family home).

  • You want a new mindset to help you face new challenges ahead.

  • You're a professional who feels you need to take your career to the next level and want to get yourself stronger - inside and out - to move forward.

  • You simply feel stuck in a rut and want to get out!
