Sensei Jared Wilson – Episode 76
That’s a big part of it too, is being able to think about those situations and being able to say now what? What do I have to do to get past that?
Today we get to talk to someone that, in some ways, is very much a mirror of myself. Sensei Jaredd Wilson is a martial artist with experience in Aikido, Silat and Kenjutsu, but he also hosts a podcast about the martial arts, called Martial Thoughts. And in a very new development, it looks like we’ll be seeing him at the first-ever whistlekick Martial Arts Weekend in July, 2016.
We became friends over social media and decided it would be fun to have each other on as guests. We’ve done that and I really enjoyed my time talking with Sensei Wilson, both on his show and here, on Episode 76. Sensei Wilson has a strong love for the martial arts, martial arts culture and seems to genuinely believe, as many of our guests do, that there’s nothing like martial arts training for developing better people and improving the world.
So check it out. ~jeremy
The video below is a montage of some of the fight scenes from the Scott Adkins movie we discussed, Ninja: Shadow of a Tear.
You should definitely check out the Martial Thoughts podcast (iTunes) – just as there’s value in all martial arts, there’s value in all martial arts podcasts!
Below is an impressive video of a sword cutting competition, Tameshigiri. If you spend some time on YouTube looking around, you can find some impressive accomplishments… and equally impressive hatred in the comments.
