“It is been a joy for me these last four years to witness Johnny Blackburn as “ninja warrior” and a leader in the San Diego community. He is a very special man able to fluidly play many roles as coach, mentor, big brother, and deep listening friend, to name a few. He is an artist of life and often a model of skillful means, discerning when to speak or be silent, whether to guide or accept it as is, how to open our hearts, sense more in our bodies, or be more real, all the while inspiring greatness in each of us.”

He has inspired continuing change and growth in my life.”

I consider myself honored to have him in my life as he is one of the few people in that I trust without a doubt, as a person and as a man. An outstanding gentlemen if there was one.”
