RAZ CHAN BIOGRAPHY

Raz Chan is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, bestselling author, and speaker on mental mastery. As a child, he experienced the power of the martial arts spirit in overcoming adversity when his father lost the family savings to bankruptcy. Instead of giving up on his dream, his father started his tiny bean sprout business in the basement of their home. In the daytime, his father tended to the business and at night he worked as a delivery driver for Kentucky Fried Chicken. Young Raz Chan went to work at the age of 10 to help with the family finances. The family’s struggles drifted from barely paying the bills to having almost no money for necessities. Regardless of the circumstances, they remained resilient, doing whatever it took to succeed.

One of the lessons Raz Chan learned from this difficult time, was his father continuing to practice martial arts every day at 5:30 am in the parking lot of K-mart near their tiny home. His father credits this daily practice with helping him clear his mind to focus on transforming failure into success. Consequently, the road to success was a long one taking over 12 years to help build his family business to become a profitable and major player in the food industry. Furthermore, Raz discovered the power of a strong mind and how it relates to success. He continues to use his experience to overcome adversity and achieve his goals.

Recalling this life lesson, Raz Chan began to take an active interest in the area of mental mastery at the age of 26. Inspired by the works of Bruce Lee, Brian Tracy, and inspirational movies, he delved into studying how successful people in business and martial arts went from struggle to success. From the foods they ate, exercise habits, self-education, and the way they used adversity to build the life they dreamed of. Raz took it upon himself to implement these philosophies for his own success. He brings these strategies forward throughout his presentations.

The positive shift and newfound knowledge transformed Raz Chan’s life from a sickly underweight kid lacking confidence to a martial arts master with a life purpose. Since 2005, he has passionately transformed the lives of thousands of individuals through his martial arts teachings. As a result, he has written two books related to personal development, the bestselling “Power Principles for Success” with Brain Tracy and “The Human Excellence Project”. Furthermore, his passion to help and inspire others through his story leaves audiences with practical insights on how they can become their own champion in life and work.

Above all, Raz Chan uses practical insights from his story to identify how one person’s struggles can help them become a better person and leader. Because of his will for a better life for himself and his family, Raz’s hard work and self-determination have led him to become the man he is today. As a result of his presentations, audiences are inspired to keep focused on self-improvement, their goals and to overcome all obstacles to get themselves to where they want to be.

Simple, powerful truths and insightful reflections from Raz Chan, whose mastery of martial arts infuses a compelling narrative, tracing a life from a child’s wonder and a teenager’s insecurity to an adult’s realization that ambition should be learned, taught, and celebrated. An inspired man of ideas, Sensei Chan’s words are shaped by oral traditions from the East and informed by a Western enthusiasm for stories of personal pursuit.
