Body Language & Facial Expressions Coach
I am Martin Semerad, as you can know from the title of the website. I come from the Czech Republic and my story begins a pretty long time ago. As young, I have been always a little different. I have been reading books on self development, psychology, theology, I have been always asking why, even when no-one had an answer, I searched for that. By different, I mean more committed, for someone obsessed.
My first contact with body language came very early in my life, maybe about age 13-14 when I found out that communication is not only about words, that there are a bunch of other stuff that has to be counted in. So my parents bought me my first book on body language topic and I think it was from James Borg.
Then I started to make my own observation, and thinking on this topic as the time passes, I noticed that people treat me in a different way than the others, that I can get some privileges without even asking about them. For example, when I started to attend high school, where I have been studying mechanical engineering, I knew since day one, I hate it and I will never do that for living. But anyway I finished that studying successfully but a major success made my knowledge how to impress people by myself, by my presentation, body language, communication. Even during passing my final exam - maturita exam. I was supposed to speak about CAD systems and with the supervising teacher we were speaking about how I want to become body language expert and I gave him a reading and as the result, I got the maturita certification with one of the best ratings in my year.
I love reading classical books like a Shakespeare f.e. and I totally love reading books, I know that it will push me on the next level in anything, starting from body language, communication, philosophy, theology, martial arts, every time I open new book, I have a feeling, I will become a superhero when I finish it because of the summary at the back of every book.
I also do handstands and sometimes work out, I used to train martial arts and I have been a competitive swimmer.
And one more accomplishment I made with my body language skills is that I have picked my wife on my smile, and these are her own words, pinky promise. I smile a lot and it gives back its fruits, it means you’re gonna hear quite a lot about a smile from me.
