Most of you here probably know me from my near 40 years in the Martial Arts, and my Action Movie Career. As an only son, for the last 10 years I’ve been focused on taking care of my ailing Mother who passed in 2014 at 89 Years old, and most recently my 94 year old Father passed from end stage Parkinson’s. He was interred at Arlington Nation Cemetery with Full Military Honors. Now that I have moved to my home in Florida, I want to reach out to my International Friends and fans and get involved while continuing to pursue my passion for Martial Arts, helping implement Children programs (after school programs and Martial Arts in-school classes), Refugee and Environmental issues around the world.

As my duties as a devoted son have now been fulfilled, I look forward to making appearances at events, and showing up to support causes and making a difference. My family is all of you, and I look forward to what the future brings!  Please join my mailing list, visit my blog and keep in touch.  Use the contact form below to reach me or on the various QR Code images on the site to contact me at any time.

Voice Over for BJ Penn Productions

Voice Over for BJ Penn Productions
November 3, 2019 lorenavedon

When I lived in Hawaii I worked for a time with Prodigy Productions, BJ Penn’s company. They did everything from putting on the “Just Scrap” MMA fights once every 3 months in Hilo to working with the Penn Hawaii Youth Foundation. A program where I taught Martial Arts classes to “at risk” youth diverted from the court and placed in programs and foster homes and given a second chance rather than locked up in Juvenile Detention. The Penn Hawaii Youth Foundation was started by BJ himself as a result of an altercation in Honolulu where BJ punched out a cop. When he got in front of the Judge, the Judge was smart enough to realize that locking BJ up wouldn’t help the community nor would it be in the best interest of such a well known celebrity and Hawaiian legend. As this was BJ’s first offense the Court ordered BJ to start a Youth Program to help disadvantaged and at risk youth through Martial Arts training and organizations like The Salvation Army, Kealapana, and the Arc of Hilo to give kids and young adults a chance to train at the Penn Academy in Hilo and learn Martial Arts. You can see some of the classes I taught by looking at my YouTube page.

Prodigy productions also branched out to offer some opportunities to MMA fighters across America to come to Hawaii and fight in a Just Scrap event. I was happy to do the Voice Over for the “So you think you can Fight, Prove it” MMA talent search. It was put on BJPENN.com and run on other MMA web sites to promote the program. It also aired on some MMA cable channels on the mainland. The promotion was just some of the great work produced by Stan Rosario and Lorraine Shin, BJ Penn’s Mom. It was an honor to be of service to the Penn’s and by giving to their organization they also helped me to get my Mother over to Hawaii where she spent the rest of her days in Paradise at Hale Anuenue Restorative Care on Wainuenue Ave in Hilo. Have a listen to the commercial and check out the production value that Stan was able to give to the spot. A great talent and a blast to work with. So you think you can work in Show Biz, Prove it! It ain’t easy, but when you have talent and preparation meets opportunity Things can happen! Check it out!
