Sensei Katie Jordan – Episode 136
I really think competition makes people better. You see different fighters, you see different styles, you see what works for people and what doesn’t.
I first met Sensei Katie Jordan in 2015 at a competition. Since that time I’ve had the opportunity to watch her referee, compete and otherwise embody martial arts. Sensei Jordan is a woman who had dedicated her life to martial arts training, and that dedication shows. On today’s episode, we hear about her deep love for the arts, for her instructor and for the many people she’s met along the way. What we hear today is insight and passion that shows a tremendous level of maturity. Enjoy.
