Podcast episode 36: how to argue martial arts and self-defense?

This podcast came about because a few things came together one after the other. It got me thinking about all those silly (heated) arguments on the internet about martial arts and self-defense. We all know these happen, but what would be a better way to discuss these topics? That’s what this episode is all about.

Enjoy!

Podcast episode 34: Pentjak Silat and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for Self-Defense

Last June,  I did a special Q&A month on Patreon. I didn’t get to all the questions, so I am working my way through them in various places, including in this podcast. Carlos asked me about the effectiveness of Pentjak Silat and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for self-defense. In this episode, I try to give a nuanced opinion on both these arts.

Enjoy!

Podcast episode 32: Self-defense tips for young women

Here’s the next podcast episode, #32: Self-defense tips for young women. This will be a controversial one for some listeners, I’m well aware of it. But I believe it is more important to be as truthful as I can be than cater to popular belief that I know to be harmful. If it isn’t for you, then I can only shrug and move on. Nobody forces you to listen to my stuff anyway, right? If it is for you, There will be a bonus episode to accompany this one over on Patreon.
