Hiyaa!! was conceived as a podcast that would be both entertaining and informative for the martial arts community at large, no matter what style(s) you practice or what level you are at within your chosen style(s). Your hosts Craig Kiessling and Dave Jones have both been active in the martial arts world for quite some time – being students as well as teachers – so you know you’re in relevant (if not good) company. If you enjoy interviews with notable martial artists of various styles and backgrounds, no holds barred mouth boxing, and staying informed about martial arts in the news and other media—this is the podcast for you. So, slip on your angry pajamas, cinch up your black belt, eat a loaf of bitter, and don’t forget to throw your sense of humor into your gym bag as we take you on a bi-monthly safari in the darkest jungles of the Wu Lin.
