      "Your life is dependent on staying calm and making appropriate 

      decisions while under stress"

      Lt.Col Scott McLeod, Canadian Forces, Deputy Surgeon General

      "Knowing the other and knowing oneself,
      In one hundred battles no danger.
      Not knowing the other and knowing oneself,
      One victory for one loss.
      Not knowing the other and not knowing oneself,
      In every battle certain defeat."

      Sun Tzu, 'The Art of War' Denma Translation

      "For years, so many of us involved in military ... tactical training opted for the ‘sexier side’ of our skill sets, working on deadly force, discriminative marksmanship, or defensive tactics, but rarely, if ever, factoring in the mental side and its importance to our success" 

      Lt. Col. Eduardo Jany, USMC

      “I approached it with mindfulness, … as much as we pump iron and build physical strength, we need to build our mental strength”

      Phil Jackson used mindfulness techniques coaching the Chicago Bulls & the Los Angeles Lakers to a total of 10 NBA championships 

       

      Evidence-Based

      The US Naval Research Centre together with the US Marine Corps, and the Mindfitness Institute conducted several research studies on the mindfulness and body-mind exercises included in MbwareTraining programs.
