Sempai Alysa Giudici – Episode 167
Remember to always be a role model. To always just be humble and work hard no matter if anyone’s watching or not.
It was from a news article online that I first discovered Sempai Alysa Giudici. We’ve had some younger martial artists on the show, and she certainly fits that profile. Every one of them has a common thread, though – their dedication to martial arts far surpasses their years. Sempai Giudici showed a maturity in the news article that inspired me to reach out. We chatted a bit and I knew that she belonged on the show. Here we are.
Our conversation is both expected and unexpected. On the one hand, we have a passionate martial artist who has no trouble describing their love for what they do. On the other, her focus and dedication are not typical of individuals her age, even martial artists with years of training. She’s an exceptional individual and someone I greatly enjoyed speaking with.
We’re proud to announce the release of the first edition of the book version of our Martial Arts Event course. How Not To Hold a Martial Arts Tournament is available on Amazon as a Kindle eBook, and soon to be available in print. The advice in our book and course is equally applicable to events of all sizes & all styles. While much of the book and course talks about competition, the instructions will be just as helpful for other martial arts events such as seminars.
On today’s episode, we mentioned the episode we did with Master Ken.
We mentioned Luca Valdesi, the Italian man known for his powerful kata performances. You can see him perform the form empi, here.
