Hanshi George Alexander: Episode 19
“And that’s the discipline, that’s the mastery of traditional martial arts – coming from a battlefield entity, where you’re just a Jitsu where you’re trying to kill somebody, to a real art, to a discipline that requires a high level of skill.”
This week’s episode is with Hanshi George Alexander, Shorin Ryu practitioner and president of the International Shorin Ryu Karate Kobudo Federation. His martial arts history dates back to 1964 and he’s been very active ever since. Along the way, he’s trained with some amazing people and racked up a long list of ranks held in different styles. He shared a lot of wonderful stories and I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him. Hanshi Alexander represents the “old school” of martial arts well and is truly passionate about sharing his knowledge and experience.

Hanshi Alexander mentioned an impressive video of a woman performing a kata without knocking down a series of dominos. I believe we found it.
