EmbodiedMBA integrates the science of mindfulness, with inner game management tools, delivered through an action learning experience — designed to help you, your staff, team and organization to achieve more focus, presence and resilience.


The EmbodiedMBA is the ‘inner game training’ we all should have received as part of our education, both in school or at university, but never did. We all know, that knowledge can only take us so far — but if you can’t beat your inner opponent — no amount of knowledge will lead to success. The EmbodiedMBA is a ‘Masters’ level course in eMbodied Administration that teaches participants how to manage their mindbody as integrative selves in high pressure environments. While giving a person the tools to beat their ‘inner opponent.’

In the EmbodiedMBA experience we focus on 6-key learning principles. Each of these principles are taught by applying a fun, action oriented method — through martial art based drills, and somatic movement sequences. Our goal always is to allow participants to not only cognitively understand these principles, but to experience them in the moment — thus opening up the doorway for sustainable ’embodied’ change.


Through a series of embodied learning drills, participants experience the paradox of imperfection, that is needed for perfect peak performance to take place.


Thinking isn’t inherently bad, but what you focus on can be. Here we coach participants in specific thinking drills that will enable them to harness the power and clarity of the present moment.


How you engage your body, not only changes your physiology, it also changes how you think and feel about yourself. Here we introduce participants to Attitude Embodied, and why it is essential for peak performance in any endeavour.


Mindfulness is a state of being where you are able to just be present without judging the outcome of your experience. This is an embodied state of being fully present, that will allow a person to take on the martial arts of everyday work and win!


Breathing shouldn’t only be seen as something you do simply to stay alive, but rather, and equally important something you need in order to act. Here participants are taught how to speak to their nervous system so that they can better manage those moments of intense stress at work.


True success in life and work is the ability to bounce back from setbacks. But it is also about putting in the work. In this final teaching section we focus on showing participants how to build resilience, surviving the hustle and why we believe people need more challenge play in their lives to truly be successful.

Coach Rodney King went from never finishing high school and sleeping on a park bench at 17  to becoming a world renowned modern martial artist, super successful entrepreneur of two global modern martial arts lifestyle brands and author. How? Through the very same inner game tools he teaches in the EmbodiedMBA experience.

Rodney’s undergraduate work was in psychology, and he earned his Masters Degree in Leading Innovation and Change from York St John Universities School of Business (UK). He is currently a Social Scientist, and Doctoral Student at the University of Leicesters School of Business, where his research focuses on mindfulness-in-action and it’s role in leadership effectiveness. Rodney is also a certified Positive Psychology Coach.



“I loved how Rodney King weaved his life story, and together with his martial art practice, was able to succeed and win at the martial arts of everyday life.”

Naveen Jain Billionaire Entrepreneur & Founder: Moon Express, Viome Inc & BlueDot

“As a positive psychology researcher I am impressed with Rodney King’s intuitive grasp of people’s strengths and hopes. King introduces the best aspects of performance psychology to help people achieve their own goals. At long last, we have a perfect union of proven martial arts techniques with cutting edge approaches to teaching and personal development. As a martial artist myself, King’s methods are a breath of fresh air.”

Dr. Robert Biswas Diener – The Indiana Jones of Positive Psychology and Author of Happiness

“There are few people I’ve met in life who have as much passion about helping others as Rodney. He’s a true leader not only in martial arts but in helping people get the most out of life. He cares deeply about getting people results. That’s not easy to find these days. And the best part of everything he does is that what he teaches works!!!””
