“Leonard Wayne came from a very dysfunctional family & wound up abusing drugs and alcohol to cope with his father murdering his mother and he had several other family members commit suicide. Leonard became a wildly powerful 6′ 5″ 250lb Black belt. In his teen he turned into a teamster leg breaking enforcer!
Leonard also became a successful stockbroker, FAA pilot, master salesman, registered alcohol and drug technician and motivational speaker! Leonard’s story of his attempts to get higher & higher with drugs, alcohol & sexual conquests resulted in low self esteem, abusive behavior, that culminated ultimately, (even with his God given talent, good looks, immense charm, size, fearlessness & exceptional intelligence) led him to prison & later REDEMPTION! Higher & Higher is a GREAT read and has lessons for all of us. Everyone who reads Higher & Higher will learn & benefit. Great job Leonard, my 7th degree Black Belt and dear friend. Thanks for bearing your soul!
You are giving back as a powerful speaker, coach & example of what faith can do for all lost souls & others who have strayed from the Golden Rule! Leonard you are a great Christian example and my Black belt.”Bob Wall
“I know there are a lot of great stories out there but you must read Higher and Higher by Leonard Wayne.”Joe Mantegna, Jr.
“It is not a difficult read and it is very entertaining, and ultimately you come away learning something important about my boxing sparring partner Lenny. Never quite! My favorite kind of book! ‘Lenny the Lion’ always had A ‘Positive Mental Attitude’ and a good left hook!
Leonard walks with Jesus and is A real Standup man. God bless him always.”
“From Olympic heavyweight hero to convicted killer. I have experienced more of life’s extremes than most. I maintain my innocence to my new life and wellness coach Leonard Wayne and try to tell everyone how I extracted positives from my time inside and look forward to the future with Dr. Wayne.”Henry Tillman
“I have just finished reading your book for the third time. It’s amazing how similar our lives were and are. Your life story would make a wonderful movie…do it now.

I recommend your book for anyone and everyone to read.”Mike Stone
“A must read for all my students and anyone in the Martial Arts community – Master Wayne is now a Sober escort & bodyguard companion for actors, doing specialized drug interventions for Jesus Christ. Early in his life Lenny consciously followed the simple belief, ‘You choose your seat in life with champions, like Jesus Christ!’
Master Wayne’s choices have taken him to the highest level of success, to the lowest valley of failure, and back again to mature and sustainable success. He is always driven by a desire to share the wisdom gained from his choices to help others find Jesus Christ and achieve stability and genuine prosperity in their personal lives, relationships, family and business. Leonard’s life story demonstrates that unwise choices eventually bring consequences.
Through his unique and personalized approach to sober coaching, plus his ‘’Jesus Christ ‘’interventions, Leonard now guides others to maximize their God-given abilities to pursue their dreams while learning discernment to choose wisely and give success the right foundation to last-He still lives at Surf City, Huntington Beach, CA with his burning passion for the extension of the Kingdom of God. It was really a great pleasure, to see him again with his beautiful wife, Laurie at the 2014 Long Beach International Martial Arts Championships. I love my brother Leonard even more now…please read this book and find Jesus Christ today… Maloha.
Many Masters will walk in and out of your life, but only true Masters will leave footprints in your heart.” Friends… “If you have one real friend in life, you are a wealthy man.” There are friends and then there are friends. The true friends are the impacting friends… impacting your life for the good… stand with you through everything, stand with you when you stand alone, cheer you on in your successes. There is a difference between true friendship and acquaintances. I’m grateful for love and smiles—“Many folks want to serve God, But only as advisers.” Thy will be done, Almighty God.” Love you very much, Mahalo e ke akua no keia la.”John Natividad
“Yes, I agree it is a wonderful book and testimony. God bless you Leonard Wayne!
Here is a friend and me at the Men’s Gathering today. Leonard has a testimony and background as a bone crunching martial artist, Hollywood stuntman and someone that did hard time in prison that matched the hard time growing up but by the Grace of God he eventually forgave his dad for killing his mother.
I recommend getting his book, real, raw, and a great encouraging read! So say a prayer for my larger than life friend who loves Jesus whole heartedly!”
