In this episode, Jeremy and co-host Andrew Adams take on another iteration of the Rapid Fire Question and Answers.

Rapid Fire Q&A #7 - Episode 641

Jeremy and co-host Andrew Adams tackle a series of questions from you, the listeners, in the form of a Rapid Fire Q&A. Here are the questions they tried to answer:

  • Do you think kata or forms suffer PR problems for people outside of the traditional martial arts community? If you think so, how do we fix that PR problem?

  • What do you think of an exchange program, martial arts schools could have with neighboring schools on a regular basis?

  • Do you see the Martial Arts as an industry in the sense of it's a business? Or do you see it in the other dictionary definition of “hard work”? And if so, why?

  • What are your thoughts on the standardization of the Kiai? Should it be the same throughout a particular dojo?

  • Do you find your Kiai differently if you're doing basics than if you're doing forms?

  • Do super fun movies like Kung Pao and Beverly Hills Ninja hurt martial arts reputation? 

After listening and answering these questions, it would be exciting to know what are your thoughts about it. Don’t forget to drop them in the comment section below!
