This week's interview is with an old friend, Michelle Moreau, though her martial arts family calls her "Machina." She's a nine-year tae kwon do veteran and black belt hailing from Vermont. I'm not sure when I first met Machina, but she's been around as long as I've been training martial arts in Vermont. We had a good chat, and things got emotional when we talked about the struggles martial arts has helped her through. I'm sure you'll enjoy this episode.

Today's interview is with Master Huzon Alexander, a martial arts instructor from southern Vermont. I first met Master Alexander 20 years ago when we were both competing on the New England martial arts circuit. I stepped away from competition for a while, but when I came back to start whistlekick, he was one of the first people to offer his support. It only seemed fitting that he be the first guest on whistlekick Martial Arts Radio.

In this episode we talk about Master Alexander's martial arts history, especially his time in competition. He's competed in more martial arts disciplines than anyone I know and had tremendous success. It's an inspirational interview with an inspiring man. I hope you enjoy it.

Today’s interview is with Mr. Glen Stafford, a tae kwon do practitioner and a good friend. We met here in Vermont through affiliated martial arts schools, though he now lives in Tennessee. Mr. Stafford’s story is one that spans four decades, a thousand miles and includes a pretty amazing journey through a medical setback. It’s an inspirational interview and one that you won’t want to miss.

Today's interview is with Sabumnim Jake Daniele, a tae kwon do instructor from Freeport, Maine. I met Sabumnim Jake on the IPPONE competition circuit in 2014. The first time I met him was at a tournament in Sanford, Maine, when we had our booths setup next to each other. This was the first event whistlekick operated the now-(sort of) famous pushup challenge. Sabumnim Jake saw that few people were engaging with it, so he pushed a lot of his students to participate, which made the whole day a lot more fun for us.

In this episode of whistlekick Martial Arts Radio, Sabumnim Jake and I talk about his 20-year history in tae kwon do and how his martial arts school puts a strong emphasis on family. It's a great interview with a young man who will, I have no doubt, leave a strong and positive mark on the martial arts world through his lifetime.
