Episode 596 - Mr. Matt Hoffman
Mr. Matt Hoffman is a Martial Arts practitioner and teacher at the Wandering Ministry. I think understanding violence not as something that is just a punch and a kick, but actually everything else that leads up to the violence. The way we speak to each other, the way we hold our bodies infront of each other, the way that we orient ourselves to relationships. These are actually what leads to violence. Mr. Matt Hoffman - Episode 596 There are few martial artists that are willing to go as far as the source of their discipline. Mr. Matt Hoffman developed a passion for martial arts as a young kid which gave him an opportunity to travel and train overseas. As a self-confessed ‘nomad’, Mr. Hoffman has been on a couple of trips to China and Japan to study where some of the martial arts disciplines were from. There’s a lot to unpack in this episode from his journey to the martial arts to his take on violence so, make sure to listen to find out more!

Episode 586 - Hanshi Patrick McCarthy
Hanshi Patrick McCarthy is a Martial Arts practitioner, instructor, and director of the International Ryukyu Karate Research Society (IRKRS). You can tell people anything, but you can’t make anyone do anything. I think the idea of showing somebody how to learn seems to be more fruitful in the long run that telling, explaining, or offering what to learn. I think that role for a teacher or a mentor, if you are trying to empower someone, it’s kind of nice to let them discover for themselves with a little bit of coaching. Hanshi Patrick McCarthy - Episode 586 With years and years of Martial Arts experience acquired directly from the descendants of the Okinawan Martial Arts in Okinawa, Japan, our guest today needs no introduction. Hanshi Patrick McCarthy, a Canadian who migrated to Japan in the 1980s then presently in Australia, is a pillar of the Traditional Martial Arts having written a lot of books about it such as the Classical Kata of Okinawan Karate, Ancient Okinawan Martial Arts: Volumes 1 & 2, and many others.
