Episode 556 - Mr. David Liban
Training in college and then taking a break, and then back at it again. A story that may have been familiar but not common to us is the path that Mr. David Liban has taken. During his break from the martial arts, Mr. Liban worked on his filmmaking and produced films such as Looking For Mr. Miyagi and A Feral World. Presently he is training with Sensei Gary Swain in Denver and he is a film professor at CU Denver's College of Arts & Media.
Episode 555 - Why Everyone Should Consider Tournaments
Tournaments and competitions are divisive topics that make martial artists either excited or mad, teachers either interested or not at all, and schools either go a lot or not ever. There are positives and negatives of joining tournaments but what’s certain is the pressure it creates brings out the best and worst of martial artists. In this episode, Jeremy and co-host Andrew Adams, who are not strangers to competitions themselves, talk about why everyone should consider tournaments.
Episode 554 - Mr. Glenn Murphy
A lot of us martial artists train with one or two styles throughout our journies however, Mr. Glenn Murphy is an exception. Mr. Glenn Murphy started training as a kid with Judo at a local army camp then followed by a multitude of disciplines such as Karate, Fencing, swordplay, and even went to Japan to become an expert in Aikido. His time with Aikido became numbered and decided to train with Systema and founded NC Systema. Listen to learn more!
Episode 553 - Guns
Why are guns not that important in the traditional martial arts kata? Is there a need to incorporate it with the kata since guns are much of a threat or danger in our daily lives today? In this episode, Jeremy and co-host Andrew Adams talk about guns and why do they exist in our society. Listen to learn more!
Episode 552 - Mr. John Molyneux
There are a few of us who were forced to the martial arts by our parents and eventually liked it but today's guest never liked it as a child only to find himself training as a grown man. Mr. John Molyneux started boxing during his time in the army that instilled discipline in him. Mr. Molyneux then started to train and teach Karate by accident when he found himself looking for a source of discipline after going out of the army. Today, he is a podcaster and he employs that discipline with entrepreneurship.

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?!!!!!
This podcast is designed to grow your mind so you can grow in your style. I invite you to try 2-3 episodes on topics you’re interested in. You’ll be hooked.
For a non-martial artist, this is still an entertaining podcast. It has also helped me to gain inspires about myself. Highly recommend listening. Thank you Jeremy for hosting such a great show!
Great podcast, love listening to interviews and topic shows. I've been listening for less than a year and have heard more than 250 episodes. Love this show and what Jeremy has done with it.
