Building Trust

Who can you trust these days?? Your social media feeds are echo chambers, everything seems polarizing, true journalism is dying, conflicting information can be found everywhere, and you are expected to make rational sense of it all. Trust is such a foundational virtue that is incredibly powerful yet feebly fragile. Join us as we bounce ideas around on building trust, losing trust, and just how important it is to have people you can deeply trust your life.


What Is Art?

Have you ever stopped and thought deeply about what art actually is?? Trying to define something that can literally be anything is an interesting thought experiment. Whether its martial arts, painting, singing, or any form of creation, we try to string the common threads together and explore the deeper meaning of Art in this week's episode.


Hearing Your Heart Beat

Have you ever tried listening to your heart?? Literally, hearing and feeling each beat? It’s a powerful experience that prompted this week’s discussion around both the literal and figurative meanings of “Listening to your heart.”


The Asset of Attention

In this episode we explore some ideas around how attention can be a valuable asset. We often think about the value being gained from getting attention, but have you ever thought about the value of giving your full attention?? These questions and more on this week’s episode.


Budo Brothers NFT Drop!

We’re always experimenting with emerging technologies as we view it as an opportunity to learn something new. Over the past few months, we’ve been really excited about the advent of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT’s) and the power they have to unlock value in new ways.... So we’re launching our very first NFT called “The Mala.” Tune in to hear all about it! Where can you buy crypto: Coinbase - https://www.coinbase.com/ Bitbuy (For Canadians) - https://bitbuy.ca/ Where Can you get a...


Didn’t See It Coming

How often do we get blindsided by things? Often, the punches that make it through our guard are the ones we didn’t see coming... And this got us thinking: How we can prepare ourselves things in life that we don’t see coming?? And that’s what this episode is all about. Join us!


When To Tap Out

As Martial Artists we know how rewarding it can be to continually push our limits. But how do we know when to keep pushing and when to tap out? Whether is being stuck in an arm bar, or being stuck in life, how do when it’s better to take a step back in order to take a leap forward? These questions and more on this week’s show.


Ep:55 The Power Of Reserves

Have you ever gassed out? Ran on fumes? The feeling can be rough! After recently running out of reserves while training, we got thinking about the topic and how important it is to have reserves banked both physically, mentally, and spiritually. Join us as we dig into this and more!


Ep:54 That Wouldn't Work In The Street

We post a lot of training videos and we read the comments. One thing we’ve found entertaining is when people watch 5 seconds of a video that is explaining a training drill designed to develop attributes and jump right to the claim “That wouldn’t work in the streets!” ... or our other favorite “My 9mm would handle your stick real nice” ... Turns out, guns are no match for sticks (slow clap.) Join us for a good time as we dig in and see what we can learn from all of this.


Ep:53 Screen Time

How easy is it to get lost in social media, the outrage of the day, and the endless rabbit holes that can take us out of the beautiful moment that is right in front of us... It’s easy to miss, and hard to do. But putting your phone down can be really therapeutic, and that’s what today’s discussion is all about.

Ep:51 Fighting Yourself

In this episode we talk about the toughest opponent you will face in your life... Yourself. Here we explore what is means to beat yourself up.


Ep:50 Permanent Indie Brand

Many brands grow so big that they lose their magic... And if we’re being honest, running an organization with hundreds of employees and all the headaches that comes along with it is not something we want to do. Join us as we talk about our future plans and how we plan on staying a “permanent indie brand.”


EP:49 Why do the most humble humans make the best martial artists?

We recently did a post on humility and the comments were absolutely amazing! We printed off some of our favorites, gave some shoutouts, and had a great conversation that we'd love for you to enjoy.


EP:48 Losing Gracefully

Winning is easy. But your true character reveals itself during loss. Join us for an interesting discussion around dealing with loss not only in the ring, but also in life. We even touch on this powerful quote by 4 time Judo Olympian, Mike Swain: "Winning medals and championships are great achievements, but should be celebrated only on the day they are won. Successful people never look back. They wake up to the future and find more goals to achieve. The Budo spirit preaches to win humbly and...


Ep:47 Self Reliance

How often do other people let you down? Sometimes, there's no one to rely on but ourselves. Being self reliant is pretty empowering as it removes our dependence on outside forces. Join us as we discuss these topics and more on the Budo Brothers Podcast.


Ep:46 *Special Edition* Fuckup Nights Podcast (Explicit Language)

A while back, we got invited to give a talk at FuckUp Nights, which is an event where entrepreneurs get together to share their failures and how it played a massive role in their success. Really great idea, hugely insightful, and the movement has gone global. In this episode, we caught up with the team, talked about some recent fuck ups, and shared some good laughs. Hope you enjoy! :)


Ep:45 Doing What You Say

Have you ever met someone who gives incredible advice, but doesn't really practice what they preach? If their advice changes your life for the better, is their advice devalued? Or does it not matter if it produced a positive result in your life? What happens when we don't end up doing what we say? Join us for a glass of wine as we ponder these questions and more on the Budo Brothers Podcast.


Ep:44 What Is The Best Martial Art?

EP:43 Represent!
