Bob Lee has spent the past 17 years as a martial arts instructor. Body Mind Systems provides an opportunity for business owners and their families to learn modern day application of 5,000 years of traditional martial arts training.
Why should people train at Body Mind Systems?
If you have been looking to make life changes, then you should look into training from individuals who have made it their life’s work to help human beings become stronger, using the depth of a 2,600 lineage of martial arts for healing and for self-defense. The most important thing you can do is constantly re-invest in your personal development to overcome life’s challenges. Life’s challenges are constantly evolving – if you don’t evolve with the times, you will be overcome by them.
Where are you originally from and how did you end up in Stoneham?
I am originally from Brookfield, Connecticut. After law school at UConn Law, I moved to Boston where I had family. I started martial arts training at our West Roxbury location and eventually, an opportunity opened up to teach at our Stoneham location.
How did you get into this profession and what training do you have?
My sister wanted to do a series of tai chi classes at Harvard-Pilgrim in West Roxbury. After that concluded, I found it interesting and continued where the instructor taught at our West Roxbury location. As the years evolved, I was encouraged and mentored to teach martial arts, which is the highest level of application of the martial arts where the student becomes the teacher.
I am fortunate to have the opportunity to receive ongoing training by grand master and master-level martial artists to help give people the tools to be stronger. Our students have upgraded their salaries, improve their careers, overcome diseases and injuries and otherwise have a more meaningful life.
What do you like most about owning your own business?
As a business owner, I have had an opportunity to take more control over my life and environment to have a meaningful impact on individuals and the community. I have had an opportunity to help organize the Stoneham Health Fair, collaborate with other businesses, and helped make a positive impact on men, women and children.
What would you tell someone who isn’t sure they would like to receive martial arts training?
How long have you been waiting to take your life in an even more positive direction? If you’ve had time to think about what you can do, you have the time to take action on it.
