Werner Kleinert grew up in Sweden, a hot-tempered youth always getting into fights at school. When he discovered martial arts, he realized that he could channel his aggression into his practice, calming him. As he got deeper into martial arts, he thirsted for more spirituality to complement his physical art. He travelled to India in search of truth, meditating at spiritual centers tucked away from the world. But as the intensity of his martial arts training increased, his body began to break down. His back pain crippled him. But, one day, he finally discovered what he had been seeking, curing him inside and out.
