When Anthony was 12, his mother legally adopted him from Jim Robbins, a former semi-pro baseball player who remarried several times.
Since Tony Robbins was 17, Robbins has promoted seminars for motivational speaker and author Jim Rohn. Firewalking became a part of his seminars after he learned how to do it.
