Mr. Cory Rose – Episode 31
Everybody thinks they know who they are, but I thought I knew who I was, too. And then I realized that I didn’t, really.
Today’s episode features Mr. Cory Rose, a taekwondo practitioner from Oklahoma. Mr. Rose is a longtime martial artist with a great story. We don’t want to give away too much, but Mr. Rose credits his life to the arts, and in a far different way than other guests have done. We had a great conversation and discuss how martial arts has influenced his life as well as connected a number of dots on his path. A humble man, Mr. Rose opens up about every subject that comes up, which makes for a great episode.
