Krav Maga is not just a self defence system, it is a way of life. Warriors den is a podcast for Kravist, fighters, martial artists, warriors, politicians and general citizens. Consider this:
“The Society that separates scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools” – Thucydides
Your host Jonathan Fader UTKM Co-Founder talks to guest in an open and uncensored format about their fights, their philosophies, and their lives. No topic is taboo and the conversation may start in one place and end in another. As the quote suggests you cannot separate the warrior from the politics and the world around them as a true warrior must be a student in all forms of arts and science.
Episode 73 – Kip Warner is part of a group suing the BC Government over Covid-19 Policy
Kip Warner is part of a group called the Canadian Society for the Advancement of Science in Public Policy, which has currently filed a class-action lawsuit against the Provincial Government of British Columbia regarding their COVID-19 Policies. Kip has a BSc from UBC in computer sciences with a focus on Artificial intelligence and has even found himself working with groups like NASA. He spent time in the Canadian Armed Forces, finishing as an officer at a time when it was no longer a good fit for him. Additionally, he learned various classical European sword styles to broaden his combat knowledge. In this podcast, we discuss the legal action against the government (but due to ongoing litigation our discussion was limited), his veganism, science and technology, environmentalism, martial arts, military service, and our general thoughts and philosophies. The goal of this podcast was to show you who KIP is as there have already been attempts to smear his personal character publicly as he garners a lot more support than certain groups would like.

Insightful and Underrated
As a previous student who’s trained with the host Johnathan, he is hands down one of the most unique chilled, motivated, and fun instructor I’ve had. The core of this show, in my personal opinion, has always been to preach to individual’s to increase their awareness of the world through self-defence. It’s a “know your enemy and know yourself” type of growth mindset that is always enjoyable to hear.
A suggestion would be to ramp up the editing quality of the episodes, particularly episode 55, better to cut out the awkward 10 second pauses. In addition, maybe refer more to specific sources that are gathered or discussed in each episode, that way newcomers to the podcast understand the pool of knowledge you’re making your opinions off of.
Episode length is a hair on the long side and would also think that keep each episode to an hour max. Split them up to 2 parts of need be.
I’d love to see this channel grow and have John invite more popular guests onto the show since Krav Maga is relatively niche. Overall a splendid podcast that is relevant to today’s world we live in.
