Interview With Dr. James Hatch

Some time ago I was listening to a a friend’s podcast, Conversations on Karate, and they were chatting with a person that I had never heard of, Dr James Hatch.  I really enjoyed hearing about his approach to Karate, weapons training and tradition.  A lot of our views are polar opposite to each other, but at the same time I can appreciate his viewpoint and reasoning.  Fast forward a few months and here we are talking with James Sensei and having a great time exchanging our views on mental health, traditions and weapons.  Did we agree?  Well, you’ll have to listen and form your own opinion.  At one point James and I agreed that it can be embarrassing to be a foreigner in a land when you are not 100% fluent in the language – let me know who you think made the worst faux pas…

Happy Birthday to Anxious Black Belt.

On the 23rd of October 2019 I published my first book, Anxious Black Belt. One year later and I can say that it has been a fantastic journey. Thank you to all who have helped to make this project possible and to those that have made it a success.

I’m very grateful to all of you that have supported me by buying the book, writing reviews, helping to promote it etc. To be honest I really didn’t expect such a good reception of this small book, as I didn’t think that I could write an interesting story. Thanks to those who believed in me!

To celebrate this first birthday I thought that you might be interested to hear how Anxious Black Belt sounds with a Polish accent.

Please let me know how you imagined Anxious Black Belt might sound?

Enjoy this short clip below.

Interview with Tracey Radley

Tracey Radley is a mother, martial artist and founder of the Kuroten Practical Karate club. Our conversation revolves around Tracey’s martial arts journey, how she got involved in Karate and how she transferred into the practical side of this art.

We explore female views on martial arts, for example the barriers and obstacles that women face in their practice. We cover mental health, inclusion and disability training aspects. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation and hope that you will find it interesting and of value.
