Love the show

A long time ago I saw your ad in Blackbelt magazine and have been a listener ever since. I train in martial arts only for self defense.Can you interview Col. Al Ridenhour from Guided Chaos? It’s the school I attend here in Kansas City . The practicality and common sense is absolutely the best.
Thanks

Amazing and inspirational

I was looking for something to list to while working(I am a truck driver) I’m also a Kenpo practitioner, and recently started taking Tai chi.
I thought let me give this a listen after looking at the titles and I am glad I did. It has given me so much to think about. I look forward to all future shows and going back and listening to all of the previous ones.

Listen with Caution

I listen to a variety of martial arts podcasts. Unlike others, Whistlekick is openly hostile to what it calls “sport martial arts” (SMA) and grappling arts in favor of “traditional martial arts” (TMA) like Karate or Tae Kwon Do. In reality, so-called TMA’s, in their current iterations, are often decades to under a century old with proud sport aspects and indeed post-date many grappling arts or striking arts too sport-like for the host. The host portrays so-called TMA’s as “no-rule” as though its students weren’t often befuddled by restrictions and enjoyed eye-gouging, throat & groin-pulling melees. Finally, the host somehow brags about both preventing the dilution of TMA’s and himself never having been in a fight. Such odd priorities make such a broadcast cautionary listening for those pursuing self-defense and combat training
