I am LENORD LE HANIE

During my 2003 visit to friends, Bernard and Barbara Robinson in Richmond USA, Virginia, I was approached by Mrs. Robinson, “Could you render a training seminar for a group of lady members enrolled at the University of Richmond  on how to be more resilient? Something to get them in the shortest of time to be responsive, calm and collective in order to withstand and survive a violent confrontation?”

 In a heartbeat I responded: “How about something on reacting and thinking like a Special Forces ‘Green Beret’…?”

 The real fun began that specific morning, when the person introducing me had herself confused with the notes on my biography with the paper I had submitted to Barbara prior departing from her residence.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I am extremely privileged today introduce to you an individual whose background surpasses all the martial artists I have ever encountered: grandmaster, author, life coach, community activist, war veteran, musician, artist, philosopher: with a prosaic mind, mentor and raconteur… Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present … Mr. Lenord le Hanie!”

 Ah, if only…

 ‘Who Dares Lives’ – Survival Aspects and Personal Security, Travel and Safety Tips..

“The making of a grandmaster … Lenord Le Hanie today lives the philosophy, ‘Who Dares Lives’

Part I- Who Dares Lives consists of a three part manuscript, telling the life story of an 11-year old boy turning into a man. Born amidst two landings on the surface of the Moon, the Soviet Union’s Luna 2, and the United States’ Apollo 11!

Having endured poverty and hardships, through tears and sweat…, it turns him from mud into glory. Being an inspirational memoir, celebrating the ups and downs brought on by life.

Parts II and III- Readers are encouraged to uncover the ‘unexpected happenings’ portrayed herein, such as those brought on by modern society, ranging from medical threats, to natural disasters, including a vast array of human activities. The development of an analytical mindset man-made disasters, personal safety- and traveling threats.

Learn how to think and act like a Bush War Veteran while equipping oneself with a defensive and survival mindset. Critical behaviour is lead on by thinking and behaving within the parameters of emotional and intelligence patterns so that decision-making takes prevalence during dangerous situations. Understanding the human psychology during survival situations, is the paramount development of situational awareness – to turn you into a force multiplier.

Granger Korff – Author of ’19 with a Bullet’ and its sequel, ‘Bat from Hell’ :

Lenord Le Hanie is a high-rated calibre individual. I believe that 1 Parachute Battalion lost a good man when he broke his leg in a motorcycle accident before the tough PT-course that would have earned him entry into the jump course and consequently earning his Parabat wings during 1984. I’ve learnt that regardless of unit, he served the SA National Defence Force with distinction.

His innovative and likeable personality comes out, either when he is working with beginners, up to having trained Israeli Krav Maga to some of the elite of South Africa’s Special Forces.”

When asked about Lenord’s alter ego…

“I might be intelligent, but not of the intelligence as understood by most. Though, I am making a connection between two things…

  1. I don’t know much
  2. I am approaching things logically.””
