about Shawn Vint

I’m a Canadian man living in Australia and beginning the second half of my life.  I learned a lot of hard lessons in the first half, many of which I hope to relate to you on this site.

I train hard in the gym.  Probably harder now than ever, but smarter.   I’m a student and practitioner of the fighting arts.  I learned more in 4 years under the guidance and friendship of a 5th degree Black Belt (Hapkido) than I thought possible.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is my style of choice.  It is a ‘never satisfied’ style of training as there is always a next level or new move to learn.

I believe in unconditional free speech so I’ll say what I want here.  And to be fair, if you don’t like it you’re free to leave.

I believe that you can change your life at any age, despite any obstacle thrown your way and including those you place in your own path. It took me a long time to figure that out.

I have an incredible wife who appreciates and loves her man, for the man that I am
