A Return to Practicality: Karate & Aikido

In this podcast I have a conversation with Oliver Martinez (Aikido, Karate, Filipino Martial Arts & JKD) about what a practical syllabus should contain and the parallels between the karate and aikido communities!

This was initially a personal conversation, but we enjoyed it so much, and thought it covered so much, that had the same chat again and recorded it for you!

I hope that you enjoy it!

All the best,
