LOIC "KOSHO" VUILLEMIN PALMARES

Why does a monk compete ?

When i left my temple back in 2017, the only actual job i learned outside monastic context was to teach freediving. I went for some internships in various schools but fast decided to go freelance and to create the ever deepening concept of « Deep Zen ».
 
To attract students to my courses and to build interest into the meditative approach of extreme sports, i understood that to just be a monk would not be enough. In 2018, i took the conscious decision to start competing... and to become « The Deepest Monk ».
 
Have a look at my competition results...
