LARRY “STONEY” STONE

THE INTRODUCTION BELOW WAS DONE BY STONEY'S FRIEND DAN LAUER OF THE DETROIT TIGERS { 863-413-4115 }, { [email protected] }, AT THE FIRST GAME IN 2012 AS DAN INTRODUCED STONEY TO THE PEOPLE IN THE GRAND STAND AT TIGER TOWN, LAKE LAND, FLORIDA.. STONEY WAS BEING HONORED AS

"THE HERO OF THE GAME". 

Larry “Stoney” Stone did not grow up in a traditional little boy’s environment. Unlike his healthy siblings, his life began as an extraordinary journey of challenges right from the beginning.   

The moment-to-moment challenges of walking with specialized crutches and carrying out the tasks of living, which most people take for granted, have shaped his steadfast determination and commitment to live as actively and passionately as possible, every single day.  

During his life journey and despite his physical challenges, Stoney has chosen many paths of experience including being a Published author, commercial and movie stunt coordinator, international key-note speaker and rock band singer on the road for over 20 years, to name just a few.  Overcoming all the odds of his significant physical challenges, he studied martial arts to become a martial arts Grand Master attaining Black Belts in four different Systems.  He has mentored and produced twenty one black belts, four Florida State Karate Champions, three Southeast karate Champions, a No.7 Super Heavyweight World Karate Kick boxer and a No. 1 amateur World Karate Kick boxer.  He has also inspired one of the world’s foremost martial artists Grand Master, Tuhon Ray Dionaldo, founder of FCS Kali. 

Stoney’s training continues to be harnessed today through training others in Personal and professional development, Security Specialist training with tactical weapons and firearm training. He’s also sought out as an Executive Protection Consultant, for Executive transport, risk analysis, Strategic insight, Conflict Resolution and asset acquisition. 

Stoney’s love of traditional martial arts inspired him to start Ishi-do Martial Arts 30 years ago.  It has been his deep passion ever since to establish an arena that promotes the foundation of principles of life, and also creates a safe place for kids to learn and grow into confident young adults. Stoney was inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame in 2000 for his loyalty and dedication to making a difference in other people’s lives. 

Many of Stoney’s friends and students think of him as a real-life incarnation of Star War’s Master “Yoda” 

Even today after battling his physical limitations and being a Cancer survivor, these challenges in his life have only served as a catalyst to the mastery of the mental and spiritual powers that lie at the center of the martial arts. If you think that martial arts are about nothing more than physical combat, then you need to listen to this man speak. You will leave with the assurance that you are closer to “THE TRUE NATURE OF THE FORCE”. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, PLEASE WELCOME,  LARRY “STONEY” STONE.


Ms. Joan SittingBull, wanted to make a difference for her own sons and their children's children's children. At that time she  decided education was the tool. Teach and offer an opportunity to learn the importance of the balance of life and give them an education and they can earn all of what they dream, with a beautiful Earth to live on., for many generations to come. 

  Ms. Joan has over 20 years' experience in Internet services, leadership  and BBA in business.   

The idea for International Chrysalis Art and Music Education, Inc. was born with the help of her professors at the University of New Mexico and her community. 

  Ms. Sitting Bull’s business and life  experiences, provided the environment that led  her to the realization that future generations are about to take over this world and have no concept as to the importance of growing food, the air, water, nutrition, sleep or what happens outside in the world. 

The education of our youth to the balance of life, nature, families and freedom,are  essential and considered  the most important elements for success in the next centuries to come.

"Taking the lessons that have been learned through out history and apply all of our best thinking to the second round of educational learning experiences of life, can make a difference in the world we live in. It takes a village to raise a child."
Ms. Joan believes if the  veterans, elderly, farmers, ranchers, marine biologists, astronauts,  families and all knowledgeable people in all fields  can share their knowledge then our youth can keep history alive  and move in a positive direction.

Easy things are hard for me. And hard things are easy.

What does it mean to be an American?

We have everything.  I try not to take advantage of it, I try not to waste water, I try not to take advantage of just having all these wonderful things.that other people dream about or  and wish that they had, but, for  whatever reason, they don't. I feel very fortunate.


Admittedly, I didn't expect Joan SittingBull to be a white woman, but then, whoever opened the door was never as I imagined-and that's by far the best part of this project. And what a jewel I found in Joan SittingBull.

Although extremely busy, Joan agreed to meet at the Church's restaurant she manages at nine thirty in the evening-once they'd closed the doors and were operating only on drive-thru. She bought me dinner and we sat out front, joined by Frank Lopez, the Market Leader for the six Church's stores in the region. She is at once intense and friendly, quick and deliberate, tough and deliberate, strong and spiritual.

Joan SittingBull clearly cares about the tasks before her and the people around her, and she leads by example. Her eyes are penetrating and her laugh spontaneous.

I took this photo of her the following afternoon as she worked the drive-thru window.(Page 108 in Great Americans book)

A female, a white female, have the SittingBull name, 

 I can speak the spiritual language. I married into it; I divorced out of it. He was the great grandson of Chief SittingBull, a Vietnam veteran that was a prisoner of war. He had every disc in his back broken by the Vietnamese. An old oriental man put a ladder up against him and put herbs on his back, and that's how he managed to survive. He was one of the first few that came out when Nixon opened the door and got the prisoners out. I became more of a SittingBull than he was. So when we separated, I kept the name. Sitting Bull is what was given to me, and it must remain.

I'm a very strong person, very strong-willed. I'm not one of your naïve, young, frail things that's gonna say, “Go ahead, bust my face,” because buddy, you come and bust my face, I may bust your face back. So am I afraid? Yeah. Am I gonna care? No. I raised three children by myself, three boys. I have fought gangs, myself, to claim back my home, to claim back my children, one at a time. With the good Lord's help every now and then somebody would jump in, but I knew if they were there, time was limited. It might be a week, it might be a day, but then I would have to pick up the slats and go again. I feel, like everyone else. But I do it in my own way.


My mom has a great saying: you've got ten minutes to cry and get over it and get back to work. Life is this way. There's not a rose garden for people, knights in shining armor. Those things don't happen. There's a lot of fairy tales that we create in our own mind, but get over it. W-O-R-K is exactly what it takes.


I started out at sixteen in Walgreen's restaurant. I've worked mostly in the man's fields.

Roofing, construction, you name it. So I experienced a lot in life and the circle brought me back to food. Food is where I like to be, working with the public, treating people the way that I like to be treated, the old-fashioned way. The grace of the Creator brought me to Church's. Had I heard of Church's? Kind of. Did I ever think about working at Church's? No. I never dreamed I'd ever work in fast food. And I'll tell you what, the Creator knows exactly what He does and He put me in positions, places and times, exactly where I needed to be.

When I first came here, I thought I was pretty experienced. These people were running circles around me. Frank, the training manager, gave me two weeks of training and then he threw me to the wolves. One million, one billion times I was gonna quit. There ain't no doubt about it. But I didn't. And here I am. I have worked awful hard to get here.


Church's helped pay for part of my tuition to go to school, and I decided to go and get my degree in business administration. So I go to school part time, I work full time. To go to school and to run a high-volume store and to live a life and be a part of the community-it is a challenge. Seven or eight in the morning till eleven or twelve at night. And if something happens in the day, it could be one o'clock in the morning. Then, by the time I get home, twenty-five miles away, it's a lot later than that. It's a mindset: this is what you ha You better take your vitamins, your protein!

Attitude and determination is what makes it possible for anyone—myself or anyone—to move forward. You betcha. Give me a chance. Watch me fly. I have so much strength and so much energy, the best is yet to come.
