A Podcast Exploring Classic Texts For The Modern Martial Artist

One of the things I love to do in my spare time is read and research about all things martial arts. Over the years I’ve found a variety of works, some more well-known than others, that have lessons that can apply to the modern era. I started this podcast in an attempt to bring some of these classics and make them relatable to a modern martial artist.

Some of the works we will be looking at include:

  • "The Tengu's Discourse on the Martial Arts" by Issai Chozanshi (天狗芸術論 tengugeijutsuron)

  • "The Unfettered Mind" by Takuan Soho (不動智神妙録 fudouchi shinmyouroku)

  • "The Life-Giving Sword" by Yagyu Munenori (兵法家伝書 heihou kadenshou)

  • "The Book of Five Rings" by Miyamoto Musashi (五輪書, gorin no sho)
