GREAT way for self defenders to learn

This podcast is great for new self defenders as well as experienced ones alike. Lots of great talking points, lessons, and practicality here. If you’re serious about protecting yourself the right way give this podcast a listen.

Decent subject matter, hosts are mind numbingly boring

I’ve been listening to this podcast for about year off and on. The subject matter is usually pretty good but there’s zero personality on the hosts sides. It can be mind numbing and make me want to just sleep. I typically only make it through the first 10-15 minutes unless it’s a subject I’m really wanting to learn more about and can make myself stick it out. I feel like they just have to fill an hour so they drag it out.
Get to the point boys.

Thoughtfully Presented

Excellent content for those interested in self-defense. Presented with safety, legality, and morality in mind.
