Budokon®Yoga was founded by Philosopher, Martial Arts Black Belt, and Yoga Instructor Cameron Shayne. Born in 1971, he began training in the Martial Arts and Zen meditation at the age of 12 under the Korean Moo Do Kwon system in which he received his first black belt at 16 years old.
At the age of 23 he began practicing Hatha Yoga in New York under OM Yoga's Cyndi Lee. He soon moved to Los Angeles where he continued a devoted personal study of Yoga under various teachers including Chuck Miller and William Asad until merging the Yogic and Martial arts into an integral system.
At the age of 28 he began to train in Japanese Karate-do (Yoshukai) in which he would later receive his 3rd degree black belt. From Karate-do he transitioned to Gracie Style Brazilian Jiujutsu where he is currently training for his black belt.
After 30 years of both Budo (Martial Arts) and Zen meditation as well as 15 years of Hatha (Asana) Yoga he began integrating the three systems into a single system. It was at that time that Cameron created Budokon®Yoga and founded the Budokon University, the first codified mixture of yogic, martial, and living arts.
His undeniable contribution to contemporary yoga is marked by his creation of several techniques and asana that are rapidly becoming staples in the modern yoga vernacular.
For the past 10 years he has been establishing Budokon Yoga through out Asia, Europe and the US. He presents annually at Wanderlust, the Tokyo Yoga Show, the London Yoga Show, the Austria Yoga Conference, The German Yoga Conference, Indonesian Yoga Festival, and the Yoga Journal Conference.
