I’m back in martial arts and this podcast is a big reason
I’ve been wanting to get back into martial arts for over 15 years, but I am finally back in. A big part is Jeremey’s responsiveness to emails that helped me guide into the right topics in the podcast and by having inspiring conversations that pushed my passion to make the jump. He is a great influencer in martial arts and I can’t wait to listen for years to come!
Great Martial Arts Podcast
I have been interested and involved off and on with the martial arts since I was five. This podcast not only deals with the mechanics, but also the martial arts as a lifestyle. I have not always trained, but the way of life has never left me. This podcast offers much broadly to the listener. I highly recommend it.
Great Mental Training
As a long time fan/student of the martial arts I really enjoy this podcast. I can spend hours talking about martial arts, the different styles, techniques, and meaning behind different movements and concepts. Sensei Jeremy carefully selects topics to discuss that are vital to the marital journey. He invites experts from all over the world to share their teachings as well. Where else can you get this level of insight and instruction for free?!!!!!
