Notes from the Authors:

Here's our very first podcast, we wish you find the content interesting and useful. We have more coming out soon and you can expect them to have video footage in addition to just audio. We will touch on many interesting topics in the future.


We have been rather quiet online but lots of things have been happening offline.


In case you didn't know, we have been traveling this whole October in Asia and we just landed in Taiwan where we will be meeting again with the master Jiang Yu Shan.


We first traveled to Shanghai, China but we were behind the Great Firewall of China which pretty much hindered us from accessing the mainstream social platforms such as YouTube. 


Later, we traveled to Bangkok, Thailand to do an intense 7-day Muay Thai camp. We tried to upload the podcast but it would have taken days to get it online with our poor internet connection.


Now, the connection in Taiwan is excellent and we have videos related to Shanghai and Bangkok coming out soon. We will also be filming content with Jiang Yu Shan which should blow your minds.


Stay tuned.
