    Uniting the Martial Arts with Dr. Carl Totten

    Uniting the Martial Arts with Dr. Carl Totten

    In this episode I chat with Dr. Carl Totten about his history in the arts and his currents goal of bringing back all aspects of the arts from harming to healing. Dr. Totten has had the same school in the same location for over 35 years. While the McDojo's come and go Dr. Totten has maintained a consistent student base, which tells you something about his teaching quality. 

    From his biography:

    Professor Carl Totton is the founder of the Taoist Institute. He has studied the Chinese healing, spiritual, and martial arts for over 45 years and is licensed as a clinical and educational psychologist. He is certified as both a Reiki master, and qigong and martial arts grandmaster. He has worked in many clinical settings including private practice, hospitals, community mental health clinics, schools, and a college counseling center.

    Dr. Ron Chapél

    Dr. Ron Chapél

    This episode covers Dr. Ron Chapél's early days at Ark Wong, how he met Ed Parker, Bruce Lee, Gene LeBelle, fight films, the evolution of Kenpo, Tiny Lefiti, and how he became a Martial Hacker. 

    Dr. Chapél has been training in the arts for over 55 years with a lineage that include GM Ark Wong and GM Ed Parker. To say that this man knows what he's doing is an understatement. He has lived the Martial Arts longer than most of us have been alive. He is truly the original Martial Hacker. Someone who examines the arts from a scientific basis. Does it work? Yes, then he uses it. If it doesn't then he throws it out.

Interesting history and technical discussion

I’ve never actually been a martial arts person, but regardless I find the discussion very interesting and informative. Brad seems to be incredibly knowledgable about a variety of disciplines in self defense and does a great job getting his guests sharing. Most of all the history covered in these episodes is great, and I suspect this is the only primary sources for a lot of what the guests share.

Dr. Chapel podcast

I really enjoyed the laid back interview technique used. I can honestly say from personal experience, the podcast was like so many conversations I have had in that very same room. It is good to get all of this pertinent and resourceful information out to the public.
