Knowledge is NOT Power! (Podcast)

Knowledge is not powerHere is the latest podcast! It’s been a little while since the last one due to all the time being spent on getting the new website up and running. We are back on track now though and I have a few podcasts ready to record and roll out as we go.

This latest podcast is called “Knowledge is NOT Power!” and it discusses various issues surrounding “knowledge” and how “knowing” a technique is a long way away from being able to apply that technique. We also compare “theoretical knowledge” vs. “practical knowledge” and “experiential knowledge” vs. “non-experiential knowledge”. Finally I give my formula for power and the basic training cycle needed to ensure combative function.

This new podcast also includes some news and a new section where I do my best to answer questions from listeners. In this podcast we cover whether the changes to karate initiated in Japan were beneficial or detrimental to karate and what art I’d like to formally study but have not yet done so.

The new website means we don’t have to compress the file so you should also notice an increase in sound quality. We’ve also had to change our i-tunes feed, so i-tunes subscribers will need to switch to the feed that includes this podcast to get all future issues (old feed soon to be switched off).

Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the podcast and I’ll be back with more soon!

All the best,


Knowledge ...
