Hanshi Bruce Juchnik – Episode 120
But you’ve gotta always be willing to accept that maybe your views, or the views of your teacher, might not be correct.
Hanshi Bruce Juchnik is a living encyclopedia. When you talk about the most famous martial artists – Joe Lewis, Robert Trias, Chuck Norris, Bill Wallace, James Mitose – he’s right there in the mix. In some of the stories, he’s on the fringes, but can tell you about the major players and what really happened. In others, he takes center stage and helps connect the dots on some of the most important elements of our past.
And history is very important to Hanshi Juchnik. He knows where he came from and he believes you should, too. As important as punching and kicking is, that’s how important knowing your lineage is to Hanshi Bruce Juchnik. It was a pleasure to have him on the show and connect many of the different stories we’ve already heard, as well as point us in the direction of some guests we’ll be having on in the future.
