Abraham Mazlow, A comfortable life, The orientation of the mind, Monkeys, Group Protocols, Stories, And well, tons more. Warning – you will stay up late ruminating over Rory’s words. Listen at your own risk.
Resource Predator – yup, you are nothing but a resource to the criminal. How does that distinction effect the way you are dealt with by a criminal, and how you should deal with this form of crime. You ever think of yourself as a, “Walking ATM.” as Marc calls you, or are you a sentient being with inherent rights that need to be protected? Well, yes, and no…
After a weekend in Seattle Marc hit the Podcast airwaves to talk about Orientation, an element of threat assessment that is not worked over enough. So Marc gives it, the ol’ breakdown. Take a listen, take some notes, enjoy.
The last of a three part series with Datu Kelly Worden. If you thought the last two episodes where blunt, wait until you feel the blunt force trauma that is waiting for you as Datu spells out the failures of society today and what we as people are turning into. Plus other topics including Bruce Lee, and Master Remy Presas.
The topics come fast and deep. Kelly talks about Jesse Glover – a student of Bruce Lee. The Military, Cops, and Teachers. Our status as Sheepel (that is sheep and people folks) all wrapped up in American culture and self-defense. Not one to mince his words you will find a clarity of thought and a direct purpose to his words. Enjoy.
We begin by a tip of the cap to a common martial arts friend who died recently. Then Kelly talks about his martial arts background and the evolution of his art, “Natural Spirit.” Rolling with a few folks – including his family members, and the constituents of timing, distance, and other such good stuff. Hang on people as a man with clear opinions, and the history/skills to back it up, tells you about his world.
Living and training in Japan, Kobudo weapons, and much more with Mike O’Donnell. Head Instructor of Magnolia Karate, owner of Kensho Intl., (weapons and gi’s). We take a little time and talk about Japan, the life and the dojo. Different phases of life. What it takes to start a karate dojo. The challenges that people face during their training, young and old alike and of course his product line of weapons and uniforms. Mike is a solid guy – you’re going to like him.

You can call it the best of… or a Clip Show, but we put some excerpts together from the top three shows of all time with, Geoff Thompson, Clint Overland, Marc Mac Young, and several clips from other shows that we liked. Somethings are pretty serious, others fun, and others just flat out stupid acts of youth. EXPLICIT CONTENT
The greatest opponent a martial artist will face is pain. This pain might manifest itself in the form of a traumatic injury or in the chronic aches and pains that come with such a highly physical activity. Whether a martial artist can continue his practice may be determined by his ability to cope with injuries and to heal quickly. In Black Belt Healing, David Nelson uses both his training as a martial artist and his years of incorporating hypnotism as therapy for dealing with painful injuries into a how-to guide for martial artists.

Kris interviews Martial Artist, University Professor and Author Jeffrey K. Mann about his new book, “When Buddhists Attack, The Curious Relationship Between Zen and Martial Arts.” A top line on the life of the Buddha, Zen and Buddhism, the hodgepodge potpourri of religious views gives way to a discussion of Mushin and other aspects of the mind. A surprise “10 questions.” Plus other topics as well.
The show starts with an e-mail from listener Dave in Toronto, Lawrence and Dave have an affinity for not just hammers but a particular type of hammer. Kris goes off about how registration forms and bureaucracy are not the keys that attract and keep people coming in the door of your school. Lawrence and Kris go on about the difference, in mind set, of a consumer and a citizen and how the difference should color the way you see others and the world. Finally in Small world Big Cup Kris drops a dime on himself over an embarrassing act and how it came back to haunt him.
Lawrence begins the show with a winch inducing impression. Then Kris and Lawrence carry on to a topic that they both have experienced – and little doubt you too, called, “Big Sigh Country” Kris wants to swing a student with a broken arm at the other kid students. Lawrence talks about saving ones self from situations, guns, earthquakes and other things that might hurt you.
