From humble beginnings to worldwide success, Scott Bolan’s journey as a warrior began at the age of 8 when he first walked into a traditional martial arts dojo. This led to a lifelong fascination with not only the physical rewards of such training, but the mental rewards as well.

Scott says…

“I always had a fascination with “what made things work” – even at a young age. I was fortunate enough to be home-schooled for a good portion of my schooling years, so I wasn’t heavily indoctrinated with the “groupthink,” “pop-culture” and “sheeple” mentalities being foisted upon our youth today.

By the age of 13, I had been to Mexico on missionary trips over 30 times. My dad was Air Force and my grandfather was a chief detective, so I got a practical and no-nonsense view of things at a very young age.

I started taking Karate at the age of 8 from a very serious and “old-school” instructor. This was not a strip-mall McDojo, but a wooden-floor old building with no fancy lights or music. Training was 3 hours a night and it was very hard. This led to a lifelong fascination with not only the physical benefits of such training, but the mental, spiritual, and benefits in conquering daily life as well.“

Early in life, Scott saw that the Mental and Energetic aspects of Martial Arts and Mind Training were just as vitally important as the physical, if not more so, to self-mastery and ultimate success in life.

A lifelong fascination and study of the Ninja, Samurai, and other warriors has added to Scott’s enormous repertoire. His groundbreaking works have de-coded and de-mystified their Secrets, and he teaches them in a way that is easy for students to learn and apply.

Receiving his first Black Belt in Shito-Ryu Karate, Scott went on to achieve multiple Black Belts in other arts including Atemi Ju-Jitsu and Kenpo Karate, eventually training with the “who’s-who” of the Martial Arts world and earning Advanced Instructor Degrees in Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee’s Fighting Art) and Close Quarters Combat (CQC).

Scott is one of only a rare few Americans to be hand-trained and certified Black Belt by legendary combatives trainer Ben Mangels, former head Martial Arts Instructor to the South African Military.

Scott was also fortunate enough to be a direct student of Dan Lee, one of a small handful of Bruce Lee’s original Jeet Kune Do “nucleus” of students in his first L.A. School. Scott Bolan is the United States Ambassador for the OCFM (Open Circle Fighting Method), the organiztion founded by worldwide Pressure Points authority Russell Stutely.

In addition to authoring numerous audio and video courses and manuals, Scott Bolan has written articles for several magazines including Black Belt Magazine, Black Belt Daily, Self Growth, and Modern Combat and Survival Magazine.

Scott received his Law Enforcement Continuum Training certification at the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) in San Diego, CA, and was certified as an Advanced Close Quarters Combat Instructor at the National Law Enforcement Institute (NLSI).
In addition to his Martial Arts training, Scott Bolan studied mental training and personal development with equal passion and holds numerous certifications in multiple fields including Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy, Silva Mind Control and Remote Viewing.
Scott Bolan’s research into the mind-power, combative and self-mastery arts of the Ninja, Samurai, Yamabushi, Kahuna, Sadhu, and other Ancient Warriors resulted in startling modern-day applications that have culminated in the bestselling and revolutionary Shinobi Warrior Skills course. Scott’s exclusive Warrior Hypnosis seminar was transformational for all who attended, and the the DVD home study course of the seminar broke sales records and garnered amazing feedback from students all over the world.
