    The Therapy of Poetic Language

    Beautiful language can be poetic therapy. A good prose can change your life more than any evidence of science. Words are musical notes, and they can soothe the soul...

    Martial Manifesto

    Martial Manifesto

    My thoughts about often ignored reasons for training martial arts (besides self-defense paranoia and competition) that should be acknowledged and encouraged.

    It's All Process: Lasting Success in Competitive Martial Arts & Screenwriting w/ Brian Herskowitz

    It's All Process: Lasting Success in Competitive Martial Arts & Screenwriting w/ Brian Herskowitz

    I sit down with veteran screenwriter and lifelong competitive martial artist Brian Herskowitz on how he applies his concepts from competitive martial arts to lasting success as a storyteller, keys to competing for over 50 years, maintaining your body, applying the same mindset to everything, upgrades in regenerative medicine (prolotherapy, PRP, stem cells), giving yourself as a writer and martial artist room to play, how "do what I say and not as I do" can make sense when there's free play, how the belt system was a late addition to martial arts, and allowing the student to define their own success. You can't be a dictator to other people's wants and goals, and you can't allow others to dictate your wants and goals as well. What you want to get out of anything, you get to decide.

    There are so many nuggets of wisdom that you can probably find uses for in whatever you do and are into.

    Brian's book is "Process to Product: A Practical Guide for the Screenwriter" (https://amzn.to/31ZDtb1)

    On the Art of the Shave: A Treatment for the Soul

    On the Art of the Shave: A Treatment for the Soul

    Once or twice a month, I go to the barbershop and participate in the millennium-old ritual of the razor shave. Facial hair is making a renaissance, but for me, like seasonal crops, what is sown must be reaped. The shave brings me to balance...

    Everything You Ever Needed to Know About Fitness w/ Chris Bathke

    Everything You Ever Needed to Know About Fitness w/ Chris Bathke

    My intent in speaking with trainer, fitness writer, and gym owner Chris Bathke was to make an evergreen episode about every possible fitness scenario and question that are relevant to most people. And when you break it down, for most people, it's not an infinite number of questions nor scenarios. So what you will find are practical answers that will be useful for every phase of your life. It's an episode you'll want to revisit.

Incredible Jewel - A delightful listen

Mr Yang and this podcast are a delightful find for me. After so many years of Martial Arts, training, practicing, podcasting.... it seems it’s hard to find something new, refreshing, honest and inspiring. Sam Yang is simply incredible. Every episode feels like a movie made by a flawless filmmaker. The message, the music, the tone. But above all, the content speaks to me deeply and I take tremendous delight in listening to each episode. Thank you, Mr Yang!

Healing, Thought Provoking

What a find. This content continues to blow me away. Every episode is carefully crafted with such beautiful language. Relentlessly honest. Filled with practical wisdom, while not appealing to Ego. Seriously, thanks.
