Hello, if you're an avid fan of this site, then you would have viewed Iain's 2009 Podcast on Karate's 3 Biggest Mistakes and have read the article. I have posted below my debut podcast response to this issue. Being a Karate-ka myself for well over 12 years, I have a full understanding of these fallacies. In this podcast series, I have first introduced who I am as a martial artist. I believe this introduction will set some context into my claims. Secondly, I have summarized and added on some insights to Iain's 3 mistakes of Karate. Finally, I added a podcast that elucidates my 4 step algorithm that I formulated for extracting realism in your traditional training. I referenced Matt Thornton's work on Aliveness Theory, and the I-Method by reflecting on how these tenants are utilized in my training with respect to realism.
Please enjoy, and I'd i'd love to hear from you here and on Youtube.
