Sensei Brandon Benenati – Episode 137
A lot of people, I think, sadly think, that Black Belt is the end, and I really just think it’s a giant step – it’s really the first big, big step, and then you continue.
I’ve known Sensei Brandon Benenati for a couple years, first introduced to him by Master Adam Grogin, from all the way back on episode 5. I had the chance to attend 2015’s Super Summer Seminars with him and really enjoyed his personality and approach to martial arts. He’s a dedicated, passionate martial artist who truly enjoys his life – and his training.
On today’ episode, we talk about where he’s come from, where he’s headed, and why martial arts continues as something he’s pursuing.
