Egan is a world-class athlete; that fact can’t be argued. But he’s also one of the most honorable and stand-up guys you’ll ever come across. His passion for helping others and his never quit attitude greatly impact the lives of so many people who come into contact with him. It’s a great honor to know and work with Egan.
I met Egan when I first moved out to Hawaii to do Hawaii Five-O. My co-star, Scott Caan, a BJJ brown belt (at the time) spoke very highly of him, telling me that Egan’s coaching was world class. It wasn’t long before I realized everything this guy did was world-class….no instructor has ever given me more skills or honed my techniques like he has. Whether you goal is to get fit and change your body and lifestyle, learn to defend yourself, or become a professional athlete, Egan Inoue has the capacity to help you make that transformation.
Every now and then, you come across a superhuman being who defies all limits in terms of leadership, skills, athletic ability, pureness of heart and willingness to serve others. Egan Inoue is this superhuman, and his personal and professional success is unparalleled by any other athlete in the world. His book gives you an inside peek into how a relentless warrior thinks, speaks, and acts. If you want to become a world champion in your life, your business and your home, this book will show you the way!
I had one very specific goal when I first got to Hawaii. I needed to find someone to train with. A purple belt at the time and just coming back from an ACL surgery, I met Egan. We trained, and immediately, I knew I had not only found what I was looking for but also a coach. With all my injuries, he taught me how to relax and still train as hard and intense as I wanted while still keeping my body safe. He took everything I had previously learned and improved on it with his knowledge and style BJJ. I know it sounds normal or what a coach is supposed to do, but it’s just not that simple. It’s very difficult for an instructor taking a student who has been training for several years and continue forward on that same path without insisting the student start fresh. He improved my game. He taught me a lot on and off the mat. He’s a true friend and one of the most insane athletes I’ve ever met. I have been training BJJ for over 15 years and I had two goals. 1. to receive my black belt and keep training. 2. To be able to pass Egan’s guard. I think something like 1 in 100 people taking BJJ will ever end up getting a black belt. Between the two goals I’ve set for myself the latter seems way less probable.
Egan is a rare talent. A truly world class athlete, he has the ability to teach and connect with his students in such a way that they are highly motivated to improve and become the very best they are capable of becoming. What is it that allows a person to become the very best in the world in every sport he’s decided to compete in? Could a student really ask for a better teacher? This is why I train with Egan. Because of him, my approach to training, my approach to business, and my approach to life has changed. The outcomes are significant.
I have known Egan over twenty years. He is my jiujitsu master and gave me my black belt, he also taught me MMA. Besides that, he has trained me to compete at levels I never thought I could reach. Egan’s training got me into the best shape of my life. He is a genius in his field and has taught me how to win in competition as well as in life.
Egan Inoue is the most efficient and effective trainer I have ever worked with. Egan understands how to break down the training for fitness, martial arts, and other sports so that each this session is absolutely maximized. Nothing is wasted, and the attention to detail and precision is extraordinary. I owe him a deep debt of gratitude for helping me improve so much and at such a rapid rate.
I have known Egan for many years and watched his progression through great athletic achievement on the world stage, stealing proud each moment he received yet another world title. Some people might call Egan dedicated, motivated, maybe even gifted and I wouldn’t disagree with any of that. But he is more than all of the above. Egan Inoue is a scientist of human movement, literally applying his college major subject of physics to everything he has ever taught or competed in. My family brought Gracie Jiu Jitsu to America, and I have spent my whole life training and teaching the art to others. There only a few whom the Gracie family endorses to teach BJJ in America and my friend Egan Inoue is absolutely in that category.
Throughout a fantastic career as a professional athlete and teacher, Egan has shown that with hard work, perseverance and a positive mindset, there are no limits to self improvement and achieving championship goals. Growing up with Egan, I have always admired his integrity and humility. He has made me a better person mentally and physically. Fitness has always been Egan’s top priority in achieving all his life goals. Egan will inspire anyone to be the best athlete and person he or she can be.
I wasn’t completely fulfilled, but I was comfortable and had settled for the life I had. I knew I could do more, but I thought it was too late for me. I honestly thought I had missed my window – until I read his book. If you are looking for a way to get out of your comfort zone and truly become the athlete, parent, business owner or champion of your dreams, this is your book. Not only does Egan inspire you, but he directs you. Get ready – life is about to get a lot more exciting!
