In Episode 22 we introduce our show’s new co-host Alex Coleman.  Alex has been on the podcast multiple times, and I highly recommend that you check our episodes 7 and 15 and hear her background and numerous accomplishments.  In this episode Alex turns the tables, grabs the mics, and interviews me! We discuss the idea behind the website / podcast, where the concept originated, and the meaning behind the Work Play Obsession logo design. It is our first step towards expanding the scope of the show and producing more content for our listeners.

Hope you enjoy.


Episode 21 is directed towards the members of the military, LEO, and first responders. We discuss how to bridge the training gap between modern Jiu Jitsu / for profit martial arts training and Defensive Tactics / Combatives in order to enable you to evaluate your current training and reassess how you can maximize your limited training time.

In this episode I visit 2nd Gear Jiu Jitsu and sit down with head instructor, black belt Ken Brown. We discuss his vision for the academy and his approach to training / learning the art. We close with a few keys for those preparing for the upcoming the IBJJF DC Open. You don’t want to miss this information.
