“Sensei” Ron Thomas is internationally recognized for his role in the iconic film, The Karate Kid. One of the original Cobra Kai bad guys, Ron gained a worldwide fan base for his portrayal of Bobby Brown, the “good” bad guy who reluctantly hurt Danial-san’s knee at the behest of the evil Sensei Kreese.
A professional actor since the age of eleven, Ron has numerous film and television credits to his name. In the Conan Sword and Sorcery Spectacular and the Miami Vice Action Spectacular at Universal Studios, Hollywood, Ron performed live to an international audience reaching tens-of-thousands over a 10-year span. It’s during this time that Ron was moved to serve others when, after conversations with thousands of fans from every corner of the globe, he started to realize just how many people are settling for mediocrity and are otherwise unsatisfied in their lives or careers.
After his Universal Studios run, Ron opened his first martial arts school in Los Angeles. As a Sensei, he found himself in a life-coaching role helping students overcome challenges and breakthrough personal obstacles standing in the way of their success both inside and outside of the dojo. All the while something remained in the back of his mind: There are countless people in the world who don’t have an appetite for learning self-defense but who are starving for the life-changing skills and principles that studying martial arts can provide. Skills like Focus, Discipline and Leadership; qualities like Confidence, Integrity and Honor; principles like Balance, Accountability and Commitment … these are all game changers! Yet, they are sadly deficient in the real world.
Now, Sensei Ron Thomas has stepped out of the dojo and onto the stage to help reduce the deficit of excellence and change the game for his clients. More than just a shot in the arm for your organization, he delivers black belt strategies for kicking ass in the real world, mixed with ancient wisdom that will elevate your people’s performance and enrich their lives. He creates custom presentations to meet the specific needs of each client. His keynote fee is $11,000 plus travel expenses for U.S. appearances and 18,000 plus travel expenses for international appearances outside of the U.S. and Canada.
