Pressure Testing

Testing skills under pressure can be an incredibly enlightening process. It can help us understand where we're at in our training, and exactly what we need to work on. We've found it fascinating to observe exactly where things break down... The same can be said about our everyday lives. When pressure is applied, where do things start falling apart?? Each failure point is an opportunity for growth, physically or mentally. Join us as we dig into this and more on this week's episode of the Budo...


Maintaining Focus

The glue on the pick’s hasn’t cured yet. It says 24hrs, but it’s still sticky to touch… if I put them together they will could be permanently stuck with 3900lbs of shear force… luckily we actually aren’t under the gun to get them to DYK because Friday is a holiday and we won’t be able to get them their until Monday anyways so I’ll just chip away on them tomorrow night and Friday


Cross Training

Something awesome happens when you cross-train and try a new art... you become a white belt again! And even though you might suck at it at first, the joy of learning something new is undeniable. This conversation somehow lead to us talking about learning martial arts in grade school... and we might have stumbled on a new mission! Tune in to learn all about it :)


Drills For Skills

Consistently Consistent

It's incredibly valuable to take a step back and reflect on how you arrived at your present moment. Everything that led you to this point in your life; whether good or bad (hopefully good.) In either case, you'll find consistency is at the root. You can build a fortress brick by brick, but you can also dismantle one, brick by brick. Join us as we dig into the driving forces behind consistency, what traps to avoid, and what we can do to live a fulfilling life.


The Power Of Fear

Fear is often viewed in a negative light. And for good reason... it's generally not an enjoyable state to be in. Fear can stop us dead in our tracks and prevent us from ever taking any risks that might have long-term benefits... But, when is fear advantageous and useful? How can we convert fear into action? How can we optimally respond to fear when it inevitably arises? This and more on this week's episode of the Budo Brothers Podcast.

The Hardening Process

They say the sharpest steel is ground from the hardest stone. But, if something is too hard, it breaks. In this episode, we dig into the process of hardening, whether it's in life, or on the mats and how to find the balance between hard and soft.


The Grind, The Hustle

Hard to beat someone with a strong desire to work hard and hustle. They may not have all the skills in the world, they may not be the best, but they sure know how to grind. Often, the secret weapon is a strong work ethic that, when applied consistently, ends up producing massive results. Join us this week as we dissect what the grind is and what it means to hustle and work hard in martial arts, business, and everyday life.
