Miss Jessica Henderson – Episode 86
I recognized that I was missing martial arts. I was missing the community and I was missing the consistency and the routine that it offered.
Today’s episode is with one of my long-time martial arts friends, Miss Jessica Henderson. Over the last year we’ve heard from a lot of different people – different styles, different paths and different outlooks on the arts. I believe strongly that everyone has a story to tell – wisdom to share. Miss Henderson is no different, and the fact I was able to sit down with her in person was a bonus.
Most of our guests started their martial arts training as young children. For those that started at an older age, most of them have been training for decades and they don’t have full memory of the context of what it was life to start their journey. Heck, few of the guests have more than a few memories of that time as so many years have passed. Miss Henderson, though, is different. With just over 10 years of training, she remembers what it was like to start training at 16 and we spend a fair amount of time talking about that. You’ll hear through our conversation that her step in the martial arts was pivotal for her, and I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say it completely transformed her life. Thanks for listening.
