Steven Munatones from KAATSU

Steven Munatones from KAATSU joins us this Monday at Noon ET

for Health Revival Partners weekly webinar.

KAATSU Global is a health technology pioneer that designs equipment that enables people to conveniently rehabilitate, recover, and exercise anywhere, anytime. KAATSU Global created the rapidly growing BFR (Blood Flow Restriction) market.

KAATSU technology was invented in Japan in 1966 and uses equipment that effectively and efficiently engorges blood into the tiny capillaries of your arms and legs. This increases the elasticity of your vascular tissue and serves to produce a robust hormonal response. Olympic medalists and professional athletes in the NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball, and NHL use KAATSU, but so do amputees, paraplegics, and people with depression, PTSD, and TBI.

Steven Munatones is the CEO & co-founder of KAATSU. The Harvard graduate worked in Japan in the 1980's and 1990's as the only American in a Hitachi R&D campus with 6,500+ Japanese. He was mentored for 13 years by KAATSU inventor Dr. Sato and a team of cardiologists at The University of Tokyo Hospital as part of the 22nd Century Medical Project. He was a NCAA Division I water polo player and swimmer, a Guinness World Record holder, and an inductee in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame and International Ice Swimming Hall of Fame. He served as an NBC commentator at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and has written books on swimming and KAATSU.

On Wednesday at 8PM ET John Doolittle From KAATSU will join Steve Munatone on the weekly webinar.

John is from Walnut Creek, California. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the United States Air Force Academy in 1992 and a Master’s of Science in Defense Analysis, Special Operations Low-Intensity Conflict (SOLIC) from the Naval Postgraduate School in 2005. After 25 years working in the Navy (primarily in the SEAL Teams), he retired and accepted a position at KAATSU Global, an organization which improves performance and recovery through the use of a portable device that improves blood flow for users at home, in the office, or on travel. After an inter-service transfer and “cross-commissioning” from the Air Force to the Navy in 1992, John transferred into the Navy and worked as a hard-hat salvage diver for three years and then completed Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training as the Class Leader of BUD/S Class 213. From 1996 to 2017, John was assigned to various SEAL Teams and conducted multiple deployments throughout the European, African, Pacific, and Middle East theaters of operations. While getting his Master’s degree, he completed a solo swim across the English Channel in memory of a fallen teammate & friend, to raise money for the Navy SEAL Foundation. Most of his Navy career was focused on our military’s reaction to 9/11; a busy time for John and his family. John’s last duty station in the Navy was at U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), where he led the USSOCOM Preservation of the Force and Family (POTFF) program as well as Human Performance Program (HPP), which employs a small army of physical therapists, strength coaches, trainers, nutritionists, psychologists, and counselors to support the 73,000 personnel making up the USSOCOM enterprise. These resources are now embedded in all of our nation’s Special Operations command elements around the globe, and are focused on repairing and sustaining our nation’s most important weapon system; the Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine. It was during this time that John was introduced to the impressive rapid rehabilitation, recovery and human performance capabilities associated with KAATSU. John and his wife, Katie, have three children: Sean (20), Ryan (19), and Meg (16). The Navy has taken the Doolittles around the world; now John brings his proven leadership experience to the KAATSU Global Team.
