A chat with Clyde Campbell. Founder of the Shake it up Foundation.

April 18, 2020

I  first met Clyde more than 3 years ago. Soon after I was dx with Parkinson’s Clyde came over to my house and we sat together discussing what this new stage of life means. This is just the kind of man Clyde is. A positive beam of light for Parkinson’s people and their families. Clyde was diagnosed 10 years ago. He went straight to the most well know Parkinson’s person, MJ Fox and together with MJ Fox’s backing Clyde set up the Shake it up Foundation.

What makes the shake it up foundation so unique is that 100% of all donations go towards slowing down, stopping and finding a cure. At present, the shake it up foundation is at the research cutting edge.

Clyde is also an engineer in robotics. He has the uncanny ability to deconstruct problems and he has been able to apply his engineering background to the research of PD.

Karate and security expert Scott Brown. One powerful guy.

Karate and security expert Scott Brown. One powerful guy.

April 5, 2020

One of Australia’s leading pioneers in Australian Karate, Scott Brown’s name is synonymous  with authentic Japanese Martial Arts. Scott spent many years training in Japan and through his hunger for knowledge in the dojo and in the tournament arena has remained an influencer to many people including myself. Scott has been one of the few martial artists that have taken their training and experience to the front line. As the owner of Strong Security, Scott has honed his fighting ability and now has an extensive knowledge on the reality of armed and un armed combat.

I first met Scott at a competition in Sydney, His aura filled the room and to say that I was intimidated was an understatement. He was one powerful dude. But when I first spoke with him, he was gentle and eloquent. A true Budo warrior that walked with poise and his ego firmly in check. Over the years Scott and I have become close friends, sharing the journey into meditation whilst retaining the martial arts spirit.

Today I am speaking with Scott whilst he looks over Sydney’s Darling Harbour in the first week of enforced quarantine after returning from teaching seminars around the world.

From Reptiles to Real Estate.

I often wonder what kind of person is fascinated by snakes and reptiles as quite frankly they scare me just as much as heights and spiders.  My next guest and mate, Chris Williams has written and edited several books on reptiles including: The Snake Ranch Guide to Reptile Care, An illustrated Bibliography of Australian Herpetological Titles and A Photographic Tribute to the Reptiles and Amphibians of Australia and New Zealand.  and is of the President of the Australian Herpetological Society. 

Chris has also built an enviable reputation as one of the most trusted real estate advisors in Sydneys Inner West. A licensed real estate agent and auctioneer, he consistently ranks in the top 10 per cent of agents across Australia and his professionalism shines through in everything he does.

Chris shares his pearls of wisdom with us. He can be contacted on cwilliams@dijones.com.au

Interview with Rick Paulin

Interview with Rick Paulin

There are so many weird and wonderful people training in martial arts, My next guest is no exception , a third degree black belt in Northstar Ju Jitsu and is what I would call an intensely quirky genius that has a great skill of being able to analyse and break down just about anything to its base components, and re-build a better far more efficient model. Highly entertaining as an adults and kids martial arts trainer, able to lift unnatural weights of kettle bells, master of the Bulgarian bag, and is working on a cancer treatment that will revolutionise how cancer is treated.https://andydickinson.com.au/
