Can’t Fight The Funk

How easy is it to get stuck in a rut? Feeling like things just aren’t going your way as the situation slowly chips away at your confidence. When we find ourselves in a cold streak of slumps, how can we snap ourselves out of it?? What can we do to surpass the mindset that’s holding us back? This and more on the Budo Brothers Podcast.


Doing What You Love

There is no question, we absolutely LOVE what we do. This journey so far has taught us so much about ourselves, helped us grow as martial artists and as individuals... It's so important to figure out what you are supposed to do with this life, and more often than not, it lies in what you LOVE to do... But what if doing what you love doesn't pay the bills?? Join in on the conversation as we chip away at the barriers that often prevent us from living our best life.


Punching Above Your Weight

Have you ever tried consistently training above your weight class? A funny thing happens when we do something consistently.., We get used to it! Think about it, when you initially go swimming in the ocean... it's FRIGGEN COLD!! But you slowly get used to it... The longer you swim, the warmer the water feels. Have you ever notice the harder you train, the easier normal life feels? Join us for the full conversation that lead us to some mind-blowing realizations on this week's episode of the...


Divide By Zero

It's hard to recall a time where there's been more division in society than right now. We started contemplating why we are constantly putting each other into buckets; you are pro-this, anti-that, and it seems like we've lost all nuance. All of this got us thinking, if we are all part of the human race, then there should be ZERO things that divide us from each other... and if you try to divide by zero, then math breaks! Let's all come together for some good vibes on this week's episode of the...


Jumping On Grenades

Sometimes life doesn't go to plan and an unexpected "grenade" gets lobbed over the fence... In this episode we look at the warrior spirit that drives acts of selfless service and tie it back to everyday life. We recently had a "grenade" that we had to jump on with our latest shipment of Phenolic Kali sticks (not being polished to our high standards)... Instead of releasing a sub-standard product, we put in the hours, jumped on the grenade and protected the biggest pillar of the Budo Brothers...


Controlling the Uncontrollable

How often do we stress over things that are outside of our control? Whether it's on the mats or in the world of business, there is A LOT that is outside of our control... which begs the question, what can we control?? And that's exactly what we explore on this week's episode :)


Hard Work

It takes a lot of hard work to progress in many of life’s endeavours. Practicing the art of getting good at things that are difficult is a major life hack that unlocks opportunities that would not present themselves otherwise. Join us this week as we dig into the value of HARD WORK.


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.”
