Krav Maga is not just a self defence system, it is a way of life. Warriors den is a podcast for Kravist, fighters, martial artists, warriors, politicians and general citizens. Consider this:



“The Society that separates scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools” – Thucydides



Your host Jonathan Fader UTKM Co-Founder talks to guest in an open and uncensored format about their fights, their philosophies, and their lives. No topic is taboo and the conversation may start in one place and end in another. As the quote suggests you cannot separate the warrior from the politics and the world around them as a true warrior must be a student in all forms of arts and science.

    Episode 103 - Blog Post Series - The Nervous System, Reflexes, and Krav Maga

    In this episode, I will be going over the Blog Post Series the Nervous System, Reflexes, and Krav Maga. This will go over many factors that affect your action and reaction potentials. This includes how training works to change your behavior and responses, connecting it to your mental awareness color code state, how to work through the stages of learning, and in general how your nervous system works in relation to speeding up your reaction times.

    Episode 102 - Joel Garcia a Martial Artist and aspiring Actor originally from Venezuela

    Episode 102 - Joel Garcia a Martial Artist and aspiring Actor originally from Venezuela

    Excerpt: (On immigrating alone, life, and company of others and yourself): “You truly have to create your own family. You get used to coming and going, you have to really find a way to not depend on people coming and going. It allows me to be completely ok with being alone, we're social creatures, we need people. But I think that every one should be able to understand and know what it's like to be alone. If we don’t appreciate our own company how the f…, how are you going to enjoy fully someone else’s company? Because other wise it becomes co-dependent. It's one thing when I want to be with you because I like your company, but it's another one because I’m so scared of not having someone to talk to. Its different approaches and I feel like a lot of us are still in that kind of mindset."

    Joel Garcia is a Martial Artist and Aspiring Actor originally from Venezuela. He left the now-failed state of Venezuela when he was a young adult through sports scholarships particularly Volleyball. Sport became Joel's path towards freedom and he eventually found Martial Arts starting with MMA. He has expanded his knowledge in Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Overall Self Defense. Through Sport, Joel has grown as a person exploring the physical and the spiritual. In this episode, we cover so many topics from Martial Arts, The importance of Freedom, Authoritarianism, His experience in Venezuela, Spirituality and being a better human, what's going on in the world and so much more.

    Episode 101 - JoJo is a UTKM Yellow Belt, My Wife and Hunting Partner.

    Episode 101 - JoJo is a UTKM Yellow Belt, My Wife and Hunting Partner.

    Excerpt: "On Hunting “I never thought I would ever go hunting it just never crossed my mind. I Didn’t listen to Joe Rogan, I did not watch Meat Eater but I guess at the time I had a lot of health issues and I was doing the process of elimination and trying to figure out what was wrong or how to fix my body because our medical system obviously failed me…and Ben Greenfield one of the Bio Hackers I listen to and Joe Rogan Kept raving about these free ranged meat and one of the reasons I started was because I wanted Free-range meat. It is the healthiest meat you can get." [Hunted meat is as free-range as you can get]

    JoJo is a UTKM Yellow belt, My Wife and Hunting Partner. JoJo shares the story of how she came to UTKM and how we originally met. She is of course, the bravest warrior of all as she made the leap of faith in the Journey of Marriage with your host Jonathan Fader. A quest that many before failed to achieve. In this episode, we discuss JoJos UTKM's back story, but we mostly focus on Hunting in BC a Lifestyle Choice that has changed our lives for the better.

    Episode 100 - Host Jonathan Fader does Story time: A loose history of his life and how it lead to UTKM

    Episode 100 - Host Jonathan Fader does Story time: A loose history of his life and how it lead to UTKM

    Jonathan Fader is your host and Co-Founder of UTKM.

    A message from your host: As this was the 100th episode I thought I would do something a little different. I will give you a loose history of my life and how it lead to the creation of UTKM and where it is at today. It is a loose history as it is a story from memory as well as an attempt to keep certain details specifically vague for privacy or legal reasons. The purpose of this episode aside from a general history is also to help those who struggle running their own martial arts schools to know that you are not alone in dealing with the trials and tribulations of running a martial arts school. It can be emotionally, physically, mentally, and sometimes financially draining whether it's successful or not. I want you to know that it is also ok to talk with others about your struggles both mentally, financially, or even socially (though you don't have to do it quite as publicly as me). This industry is not for everyone and can leave many feeling alone and isolated yet know that it is also a very rewarding industry to be in even if you only have a handful of students. It also helps you to get to know Jonathan a little more if you didn't already know enough.

    Episode 98 - Blog post series - The Awareness Colour Code Self Defense and Mental Health

    Episode 98 - Blog post series - The Awareness Colour Code Self Defense and Mental Health

    This episode is a blog post series discussing the Mental Colour code and its application in both literal physical self defense and mental health. At UTKM it is very much believed that self defense is not just physical and too often we can focus too much on the groin strikes and throat punches that good self defense is very much about balance which includes both the internal and external aspects. Several years ago UTKM adopted and slightly modified the Colour code developed by Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper and it has been an integral part of our Self Defense and Krav Maga approach ever since. One must understand its application to literal self defense, to personal mental health and Mindfulness as well as how it connects to our nervous system and its various reactions. Understanding this is key to a happy and healthy life and one where you have truly learned to walk in peace.
