Mr. Lewis story starts out on January of 1985 as he sat down one Saturday afternoon to watch a martial arts movie. Six years later he wrote down detailed notes of what would be the foundation of his principles and philosophy, which he called W E I S H E N D O (way of the active spirit). Having done what few people could only dream of doing, he went a step further. Mr. Lewis spent the next seventeen yrs. trying to understand the answer to a question that was given to him from his late grandmother Mamie Turner. On December 21, 2007 everything, started to make since. Putting mind, body, and spirit into a meditated state for eight months, on July 31, 2008 Mr. Lewis had reached the end of his journey by publishing “The Principles & Philosophy of WEISHENDO”. Little did he know his journey had only just begun.
On June 17, of 2009, Mr. Lewis had his first of many ER Visits to the hospital. Eight months later on February 12, 2010 he was diagnosed with Polymyositis, and on August 25, 2010 he was diagnosed with Lupus. Both are incurable Auto-Immune Diseases. During this time Mr. Lewis wrote a daily journal which he called: "The Burly Man" (which tells the events that happen leading to his diagnosis of Polymyositis.) Having already written "The Principles & Philosophy of Weishendo" (to help him better understand himself and others,) he took something negative and turned it into something positive by using his own techniques to help him fight against the illness that plagues his mind, body, and spirit. With the edition of his third book "The Divine Spear & Intrinsic Staff" (which is a special exercise book that he has developed to help him maintain a better quality of life,) he has taken his art form to a whole new level by adapting it for others. As quoted from this very book “The will to fulfill or even advance in any task is loss if you lack the effort to do so.”
