Exceptional

By listening to this excellent podcast, I have increased my understanding of the philosophies inseparable from Budo. Veladez Sensei points listeners to countless books and online resources that are relevant and necessary, integral even to Budo training. My only hope is that he never stops recording it and that he continues to share his knowledge with us.

Osu!
