’21st Century Samurai’
For our very first episode we have none other than the legendary Roy Dean.
Roy holds black belts in Aikido, Judo and traditional Ju Jitsu. He is also a 3rd degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is considered by many to be one of the best martial instructors in the world.
He is a super-intelligent, humble and professional individual and listening to his views is always fascinating.
In this episode we discuss traditional vs functional martial arts, the role of jiu jitsu in the development of our respective psyches and also some of Roy’s ‘off the mat’ philosophies.
You can find out more about Roy at his website.
