Are Books Relevant in Training?

In this episode I had the pleasure of chatting with Dr. James Hatch, and our chosen topic was books on training.

As usual in our conversation we drifted over different subjects. I always enjoy talking with James as his depth of knowledge in Karate and many other subjects is just impressive.

We have ventured into some very controversial topics, that might spark up some debate.  I hope you will enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

Slippery Slopes and Dark Places of Karate

Lengthy conversation with Rob Davis from Red Fish Karate, about all things Karate. Visiting the “dark place” enjoying the ride down the slippery slope of being different, and having ability to think. Exchanging thoughts and experiences about the techniques and our perception of them, exploring fear and our reaction to it. Contemplating lightening the fu.k up. 

Hope you will enjoy this one as much as I did. 

Come along and join us on the engineering side of Karate ( correction I’m only a technician!)

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… 

If you would like to read more of James’ opinions and articles please check his blog:

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.
