THE ETHOS BY WHICH A MAN LIVES HIS LIFE, THE

CHOICES HE MAKES

THIS WILL BE HIS LEGACY IN DEATH ~ Scott A.Brewer

Biography

24,901 miles is the distance from the shores of Australia around the globe and back, but for Australian director, actor, singer/songwriter Scott A.Brewer, the journey seems as natural as a bus ride.

 

Scott's imaginative artistry converges at a crossroads of styles: from comics to the confessional narratives of modern film; contemporary musical theatre to the powerful tones of solid rock. Beneath his photogenic looks and easy-going Aussie charm lies a coiled creative intensity and a single-minded artistic focus. 

 

Artists often draw from experiences, they write about what they know, and Scott's circuitous route around the Globe has been marked by a lot of living: enlisting in the military at 16 yrs of age Scott became a Red Beret Paratrooper, he’s represented Western Australia as a springboard / platform diver, gymnast, fitness and aerobic champion, was the series 2 semi finalist in Gladiators and has worked as a bodyguard and personal trainer.

After studying modern, contemporary and classical dance at WAAPA in Perth W.A, he’s since performed as an escapologist, trapeze artist, high wire motorcyclist at Olympic Stadium and actor / stunt man in the motion picture industry along side veteran actors Ray Liotta, Dominic Purcell in [Bad Karma], Keanu Reeves [The Matrix] and Heath Ledger in [Roar]. Scott's also modelled for Calvin Klein, various clothing brands and Ferrari - all achievements in a well-stocked resume.

 

A student of Shakespeare and Stanislavsky's, Scott credits his training over the years to his mentor and friend, the late Stuart Freeman, assistant director of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Dead Calm, Ground Zero and Priscilla Queen of The Desert. In 1999 at the urging of his girlfriend now wife of 16 years, he sat down and wrote his album.

 

When an Australian music magazine put the spotlight on Scott in a feature article, it intrigued Canadian songwriter

Brent Jeffery enough, to travel Down Under to investigate. Soon after the duo penned a sheaf of songs in Nashville where Scott recorded with two-time Grammy nominated producer, Todd Rubenstein.


In August 2006 his debut album '10 Minutes Later' was on Itunes. Produced by Justin Harvey - (Alien Ant Farm, Sugar Ray & Fighter Pilot) this album resonates Scott's soulful yet powerful rock presence, the authentic stamp that is Scott A. Brewer aka Ryctor, landing him on USA Apple Itunes Store early 2000.


After a long hiatus from his acting and music career, due to an illness, Scott has now added director to his resume and returned even stronger to the industry as the founder of Gena8 Studio's and creator of the Garrison 7 Universe and the Dangerman franchises.

YOUR LIFE IS ON THE LINE

PRACTICE WELL

~ Soke Masaaki Hatsumi

How Budo changed my life!

For several months I severe breathing problems, dizzieness and fatigue.
The doctors thought I had a ashma or a flu.

All my life I have relied on my physical abilities and taken them for granted. Then one day it came a day I couldn't. I was a training and I just collapsed.

Next thing I know I'm at the hospital with a dislocated shoulder, two torn hernias and phenomena.

​​​​​​​After tests we discover I had been exposed to lethal levels of mould poisoning.

Two operations later and years of rehabilitation, most of which was Bujinkan training became the start of a new chapter in my life.

Start learning from zero and there is no end to the number of techniques that will emerge. ~ Masaaki Hatsumi

My right shoulder was dislocated so left became my right and my right became my left.

I am confused is a phrase you hear alot in training and life. Confusion is good, it means your learning. When i first started training with my Sensei he would say "Leave yourself at the door" I used to think I understood this from the start. i didn't. Then years later, it hit me, the more you apply this principal not only to training yet everyday life, it's amazing how your life changes for the better.

Where did the name Ryctor come from?

RY written 水 can be interpreted to mean water

A Bruce Lee quote says - Be like water. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.

We are told to choose a name in Bujinkan that represents who we are or what we want to become. Every one will perceive and interpret training. I chose RYCTOR because water and spirit to me, represents the way I see training and life. Be water my friend.
