Franco Richard’s philosophies have inspired millions of people the world over. He is a diligent blogger and made copious notes on his thoughts and ideas on how to live life to its fullest as well as on his martial expression. Though his philosophies are numerous, there are several that are core to his outlook on life and martial arts. (see below).
But Franco didn’t get to where he is today without knowing how to fight. The years during the process of making the traditional Lei Tai fighting a recognized professional combat sport were often difficult for Franco. Even though he had a great idea, his first foray/plonge into the business was underwhelming. Franco’s success story starts where most entrepreneurs begin: with a big idea and zero cash. He discovered a simple truth: Launching a business is no small task. No matter how big an idea you think you have, it still takes a lot of work and a ton of cash. In Hollywood he wasn’t getting offered the roles he felt he deserved, he struggled to support himself, and he injured his neck very seriously and was told by a doctor that he would never be able to participate in martial arts again. He turned to many self-help books during this time for inspiration. One day he wrote a quote “Unfightable” on a piece of paper which he framed. He bought a special stand for this quote and kept it on his desk as a constant reminder to keep moving forward. With this as his mantra, Franco worked himself into the best shape of his life, wrote volumes of notes on many different topics, and further developed and named his Art of Lei Tai™. In 2017, Franco went on to revolutionize the martial arts world by creating the first Professional Lei Tai Championship and, of course, founding Pro Lei Tai™. As the saying goes, the rest is history.
When life gives you obstacles, you must summon the courage and be…Unfightable!
