Wintensitywas founded by 37 year old Eric Parker. Some may remember that Eric was also the 2009 IKF World Classic Muay Thai Rules Lightweight Champion. The IKF made note of his accomplishments at last years World Classic in what the IKF called,

"The most impressive Knock Out of the tournament!"

Eric landed a "Spinning Hook Kick" on a seasoned fighter with a 20-5 record to win his title and became the FIRST FIGHTER EVER to win "4" Tournament bouts by TKO/KO! Eric won his Championship bout at 48 seconds of round 1! This Spinning Hook Kick came after he had defeated all 3 of his previous opponents by TKO as he worked his way through the largest fighter bracket of the tournament.

Eric founded Wintensity with the goal of providing a unique training opportunity for students of the martial arts, and to help students of the seminar gain a greater understanding of how to mentally prepare for any physical conflict, including competitive fighting.

After serving as a US Marine, Eric entered the field of Law Enforcement where he served for ten years as a street patrol officer, a K9 officer, and a special operations police officer. During his time in Law Enforcement, Eric was a SWAT Team Member for eight years, and a SWAT Team Section Leader/SWAT Instructor for six years. He was also assigned for five years as a patrol K9 Handler. In May of 1999, he was wounded during a shoot-out while serving as a SWAT Team member and executing a high-risk narcotics search warrant. Following five surgeries to reconstruct his left arm and nearly a year of occupational therapy, Eric returned to full duty and was soon involved in additional, similar critical incidents, and successfully avoided further serious injury. These events, along with specific education in the anatomy and operations of the human brain, have laid the foundation for his passion for training in this environment.

As his law enforcement career advanced, Eric was assigned to supervisory level duties and promoted to the rank of Sergeant. In addition to being detailed as a Special Operations officer, Eric also served as a trainer, a field training supervisor, and an instructor of department personnel, earning several certified instructorships. These instructorships include; Firearms Instructor, Patrol Rifle Instructor, Chemical Agents Instructor, Less-Lethal Munitions Instructor, Distraction Device Instructor, and Impact Weapon Instructor. Notably, Eric also worked in the private sector, providing specialized "critical incident survival" training to police agencies and military personnel with two Multi-Day courses he developed and entitled, "The Survival Mindset" and "Mental Preparation for Deadly-Force Encounters".

Eric adjusted the critical "mental" aspects of these training courses, and combined them with his personal and professional experiences and his extensive experience teaching police officers and military personnel to survive and function at peak efficiency while under stress. Thus, he has created a seminar which is new to the world of martial artists, The Psychology of Combat and Effective Mental Preparation. It is truly the "missing piece" of the martial arts training puzzle.

This new seminar is specifically designed to educate and benefit competitive fighters and students of the martial arts (Kickboxing, MMA, Point Fighting, etc. etc.) by providing an easily understood, professionally produced seminar on how the human brain functions under stress, and how to build this new understanding into your physical training. The seminar blends the science of understanding human brain function, techniques from the field of sports psychology, and the personal and professional experiences of the instructor, to create an educational experience that will forever transform the way martial arts practitioners view their training. Eric will present this Seminar in a way that will enhance your understanding of physical conflict, and better prepare you to reach your goals in your martial arts training.

Eric began training in the martial arts at age six. With 31 years of continuous martial arts training, he is an active and current competitive Muay Thai fighter with an official record of 10-0 (6 wins by KO). He is the reigning IKF World Classic Amateur Muay Thai Lightweight Tournament Champion, the ISKA Florida State Light Welterweight Champion, and the AIC Florida State Light Welterweight Champion.

Eric left the field of law enforcement in 2004 to open a business in the private sector. In addition to conducting seminar training and developing Wintensity, he also owns a real estate finance company with his wife, and resides in Tampa, Florida.
