Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast


 

Follow your hosts on a trek into Japanese history, from ancient Japan to the end of the Samurai and all points in between - culture, warfare, literature, and interviews. Simply stated, our mission is to bridge the gap between the popular and the academic, and to bring the world of academic Japanese history accessible to a wider audience through discussion of topics and authors in an informative but informal manner. We encourage those listeners who want to know more to seek out works by the historians and authors we reference and interview, and to contribute to the conversation. Conversely, we hope scholars can view us as a way to reach a broader, non-specialist audience and raise the bar for general understandings of Japanese history.

In this episode we talk with Jaredd Wilson, Martial Artist and insructor and host of the Martial Thoughts podcast.  We talk to Jaredd about what makes a martial art, the difference between traditional martial arts and "combat sports", the challenges of simulating the stress of a dangerous encounter, "Ki" and other bits of oriental mysticism. We also discuss training in Aikido and Karate, and touch on combat sports such as boxing, MMA, and the UFC.

I love the podcast.
However, please please please change the beginning soundtracks. They are extremely irritating, to the point where I have to grit my teeth to get through them to listen to the podcast itself.
