Podcast episode 27: Self-defense techniques Q&A

First, my apologies for the massive delay on releasing this episode. There were technical problems with my microphone and then some more issues cropped up. I finally managed to get it all sorted out, so the regular schedule of releasing episodes will now resume.

In this episode, I answer Cain’s questions on getting attacked by rushdowns and several more.

Enjoy!

Podcast episode 26: Crossover podcast with Iain Abernethy

It was heaps of fun to record this special crossover podcast episode with Karate-expert Iain Abernethy. I had him on my podcast in episode 18 and it was a great interview. Iain suggested the idea of doing something together and I agreed right away. This is the result.

The concept was this: We asked our followers on social media (and me on Patreon too) for questions to ask the other instructor. During the talk, we ask eachother these questions and then discuss them a bit. Iain comes from a mainly Japanese and Okinawan martial arts perspective where mine is mostly from Chinese martial arts. I think there are some interesting comparisons we made about the arts and how to train, along with hearing more from how we each view things.

I very much enjoyed our conversation, I learned a lot and I’m confident you’ll enjoy it as well.

If you’d like us to do this again, let me know in the comments and we’ll set it up.

Enjoy!

Show notes:

1. Differences between Japanese and Chinese forms

2. Views on principle-based training

3. What to be wary of when joining a new gym or martial arts school

4. Advice on strength training and lifting weights

Podcast episode 25: How to choose a self-defense class or instructor

This episode is late again for a variety of reasons, not least of which is that I have been travelling. That said, I think you’ll like it as it answers a question I get asked all the time: how do I choose a self-defense class or instructor?

In this episode, I list numerous aspects you should take into consideration before making such a choice. The list isn’t complete, but it certainly helps you avoid the biggest problems.

Enjoy!
