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.

Have a blessed day and I look forward to hearing from you all.

Silver Spear Security

Silver Spear Security
July 18, 2020 lorenavedon

As a Martial Artist for 40 years I, of course, have accrued a lot of technical knowledge but in the process have developed as a “Peaceful Warrior”. Through my journey I have worn many hats. In my earlier days I worked in personal security, as a bodyguard, driver, bouncer, and have trained military and private operators, pro athletes, taught women’s self defense. I dedicated my time to “after school martial arts programs” in South Central LA working with the “California Youth Karate Club” and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s department with Sgt. Tony Campbell’s “United Peace Officers Against Crime” as well as teaching Tae Kwon Do for free in Pahoa, Hawaii where I created Malama Martial Arts an after school program supported by the Hawaii Parks and Recreation department. I also worked with the “Penn Hawaii Youth Program”, a program that was involved in diverting teens from juvenile facilities and incarceration which involved Martial Arts training at the Penn Academy in Hilo, Hawaii.

Recently I have had the opportunity to be involved with a private security company “Silver Spear Security” and their COO, former Secret Service Agent John Guarnieri. John and I had spoken in the past about creating a training program for operators, and team members, involving many aspects of the security industries need for training methods. Silver Spear has operators and specialized team members that have backgrounds in the military. Navy Seals, Green Berets, Secret Service, FBI agents and other highly trained individuals.

In the near future Silver Spear Security plans to open a training facility and complex in central Florida. John has asked me to be involved as an instructor, mentor and trainer. This honor to share my experience and also associate with some of the most highly trained Protection Specialists is a dream for me as a Peaceful Warrior. I look forward to the opportunity to forge in the fire of training many great operators, and in the process humbly learn from all of the amazing team that is a part of the Silver Spear Security Group.

Below is a video of John and I having a talk about some subjects related to Martial Arts and the role(s) it can play in the art of “fighting without fighting”. Thank you John and Chris for this awesome opportunity to be of service, and for the opportunity to be a part of such an awesome group of men and women dedicated to protecting others.
