About Jon yuen
The date and place of Jon´s birth is, as of yet, unknown.
Some say he appeared out of thin air during Jimi Hendrix´s first live-performance.
Others claim that Jon first was sighted teaching Bill Gates how to code.
Regardless, Jon is a man who practices that which he preaches.
Amongst those things is honesty, which is why, as of right now, he will stop writing in the third person.
We’re all aware that most of these descriptions are written by the person the text describes. It may be commonly accepted as a mark of professionalism, but that doesn’t make it any less silly.
Giving away the impression that I’m so important that I don’t even have the time to introduce myself personally doesn’t seem like a good way of getting to know people who I am. Which is ironic, seeing as that’s the purpose of this text.
So, let´s try this again
I’m Jon Yuen, I currently live in Norway and have a surname that’s difficult to pronounce.
This is due to the fact that my father’s from China - the same country where I lived when I studied martial arts. If anyone were to ask me which style of martial arts I specialized in, I would have a hard time providing an answer seeing as I’ve practiced too many of them - this is a result of my main philosophy, which is that everything’s interesting if you’re interested enough.
The same applies for the years when I worked as a professional dancer. I was incapable of settling on one style. Rather, I wanted to delve as deep as I could into each and every genre and culture, in an effort to understand what worked, how it worked and how could it be applied in other practices.
I’m passionate about expanding my own skill set and movement repertoire, and think it’s vital that I personally try out and refine as many approaches as I can in an effort of making it easier for you. But, of course, personal experience alone won’t provide all the answers.
That’s why (besides sharing philosophical musings based on own experiences) the goal of this website is to offer science-based information that simplifies the way we all can progress towards better movement (without the dogma) and better health (without unwarranted restrictions).
When I´m not running this website, working as an online trainer, conducting workshops (see Upcoming Workshops) or teaching at the Academy of Personal Training in Norway, I spend most of my time corresponding with people who live both near and far.
