What is the FITTM?

The FITTM (Firewalking Instructor Training) is the registered trademark of firewalking professionals worldwide. The term comes from Tolly Burkan and Peggy Dylan who are the founders of the modern firewalking movement in the western hemisphere. Tolly run the first FITTM in 1984, accredited by his institute the American Firewalking Institute for Research and Education (F.I.R.E.). It was Tolly Burkan who taught the crafstmanship of firewalking to Anthony Robbins who now became the role model for human potential speakers all over the world.

The FITTM methodology is the most thorough training specialization developed for practicing trainers, self-help professionals, and motivational experts who wish to use firewalking as a development tool in their work. It requires serious technical, psychological and training skills from the entitled instructors. One of the most established trainers of the FITTM are Rolf and Åsa Beckman, disciples of Tolly who taught the craftsmanship of firewalking that carry the knowledge of ancient rituals as well as today’s modern motivational methods. Through Eight Directions, their organization that certifies students in firewalking, they certified Masters of FITTM in 2012 with John Maisel Hawk, a renowned master of FITTM who also certified Charles Horton in firewalking. In 2008 Tolly Burkan retired from certifying firewalking instructors, and later both him and Eight Directions quit their relations to F.I.R.E., since having a different approach to the knowledge of firewalking than the current management. NAPKAPU follows the lineage of Tolly Burkan and the teachings of Rolf and Åsa Beckman passed on through Eight Directions, teaching firewalking to live the dream that encourages humans to walk their talk with the intention to fulfill the magic to be alive in all directions.

The FITTM is an internationally recognized guarantee, which ensures the highest quality of training and professionalism you receive at your firewalks. As certified FITTM instructors we guarantee your SAFETY in contemporary scientific research and the light and experience of almost 30 years of firewalking. As Tolly Burkan retired from training FITs in 2008, and the first generation of FITTM masters also decided to withdraw from certifying FITs, John Maisel Hawk and Rolf and Åsa Beckman were asked to pass on the legacy to the new generation of firewalking instructors. Nine new Masters of Firewalking Instructor Training were certified at the Turrialba volcano in Costa Rica in 2012, where the presence of Fire is apparent.

FIT MASTERS Certificate

Bence L. Tarr is one of the nine youngest masters of firewalking instructor training who was certified at the Turrialba Vulcano. Just like Rolf and Åsa Beckman, he uses firewalking in slightly different ways to Tolly Burkan and Tony Robbins, following his own heart and medicine. Beyond just using firewalking as a metaphor for overcoming FEAR (spells as False Evidence Appearing Real), he shares the knowledge and understanding that firewalking can transform a person through changing body chemistry and a deep learning. By allowing you to walk unharmed over the glowing coals you transform a fearful situation into an opportunity to grow, where you can examine your behavior and turn it into something better by a conscious will to act with power.

Among the international collective of young masters from all over the world, there are Chinese, Tamil, Portuguese, French, German, Czech and Hungarian among American, Swedish and Dutch participants. The collective named later as United Fires aims at delivering firewalks at the highest possible quality and content to the world. They are also the ones to certify new Firewalking Instructor Trainers internationally in accordance to agreed FITTM quality standards.

Becoming a FIT TM certified firewalking instructor provides you all the tools necessary to feel confident in making firewalks anywhere and anyhow, after the course. We give you a full understanding of firewalking, which then you can handle in your own way - no strings attached, no more training needed. The FITTM guarantee is enough for you to conduct trainings with alternative development tools such as breaking arrows with your throat, rebar bending with throat, breaking bricks with bare hand, firejumping, dancing on fire, and all kinds of firewalking of course!

This feat demonstrates the understanding and personal power of every FITTM certified instructor, that the instructor is capable of crossing the boundaries of false beliefs and limitations, and is capable of going outside the box to regain our true capabilities once reaching true commitment to our true selves.
