Budokon University was founded by philosopher, writer, Martial Arts Master and Hatha Yoga Master, Kancho Cameron Shayne. Before the age of 40 he has been credited for helping Kerri Walsh win her first gold medal in women’s beach volleyball, giving Courteney Cox, Jennifer Anniston, Meg Ryan and Renee Russo their incredible physics, choreographing fight scenes in Rush Hour 1 & 2 with Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan, and helping rehab Charlie Sheen from drug addiction. He is the founder and creator of the Budokon Yoga style and the Budokon Martial Arts System. He is world champion martial artist with black belts in both Japanese and Korean systems, a direct student of the legendary BJJ Master Rickson Gracie, and an internationally renown yoga teacher trainer with 5 top selling Yoga home practice DVD's.
Cameron grew up surrounded by men that were street fighters. His father and uncles were raised in a rough section of Charlotte NC. Racial integration fights were common among the economically challenged kids in his neighborhood.
According to his father, young Cameron was not much of a fighter and had little interest in hitting or being hit. His mother remembers him as being very soft hearted, sweet natured, and sarcastic. This combination was not well received by the local boys and he was often the target of bullying.
At the age of 12, after pleading with his parents, he was finally enrolled in a Moo Duk Kwan (a traditional Korean style of Karate). The Moo Duk Kwon school was run by brothers Paul and Dan Harmon. This school maintained a traditional approach to the martial arts with focus on breaking, sparring, and kata. His teachers considered him to be unusually gifted athletically and he flourished in this environment. Cameron credits the Harmon brothers as being his first true childhood role models and still trains with them during visits to Charlotte, NC.
