    S8 Episode 122: Interview with Trainer Julia Brasch | Pretty Deadly Podcast

    S8 Episode 122: Interview with Trainer Julia Brasch | Pretty Deadly Podcast

    We interview martial artist, teacher and self defense trainer Julia Brasch in this episode of the Pretty Deadly Podcast.

    Julia is a German martial artist and teacher with over 30 years of experience, training in Tae Kwon Do, Kung Fu and Muy Thai. Her start in martial arts was unique in that her teachers and trainers for the first five years of her schooling were all women. Julia talks about the importance of female mentorship and the importance of a balance of genders as well, along with anecdotes from her own life as a student, as a trainer, and her philosophy as a martial artist.

    She became a Pretty Deadly certified self defense trainer last summer to supplement her own training, and is now an integral part of the Pretty Deadly family as a Master Trainer for Europe.

    You can find out more about Pretty Deadly at our website prettydeadlyselfdefense.com. If your'e a fitness pro, community leader or martial artist and you'd like to expand your learning and practice, you can get certified as a Pretty Deadly trainer. Find our upcoming certification courses at prettydeadlypro.com.

    This podcast is produced by SINGE Network for Pretty Deadly. Our theme song is a track called Icarus Wish by Berlin-based punk band, Dead Sentries, and is used with permission of the artists.

    S8 Episode 119: How It Started - How It's Going

    S8 Episode 119: How It Started - How It's Going

    This episode I want to go all the way back to the beginning, and why I started Pretty Deadly in the first place. 

    *****
    Before I go on, have you checked out our new website? It’s amazing, if I do say so myself. One of the things I’m most excited about is our booking system, that let’s people book directly with certified self defense trainers and payments go directly to them. That may not seem like a big deal to you, but if you’ve ever managed a studio or dojo with a bunch of independent trainers, you’ll appreciate how much easier it is to not have to deal with payouts. Anyway, check it out at prettydeadlyselfdefense.com
