In This Podcast, Host Jonathan Fader goes over a blog post series written by Evan Jex, titled Are you a good Training Partner? Jon adds his commentary to this series on an important topic that is how to train with other people for martial arts. While Martial Arts is inherently individualistic/solo the reality is your progress is often a matter of how good your training partners are. If no one wants to train with you because you are “that person” in the gym then you are actually harming your progress the most because you actually aren’t a good training partner. Evan was also on Episode 64 as a guest.

Kip Warner is part of a group called the Canadian Society for the Advancement of Science in Public Policy, which has currently filed a class-action lawsuit against the Provincial Government of British Columbia regarding their COVID-19 Policies. Kip has a BSc from UBC in computer sciences with a focus on Artificial intelligence and has even found himself working with groups like NASA. He spent time in the Canadian Armed Forces, finishing as an officer at a time when it was no longer a good fit for him. Additionally, he learned various classical European sword styles to broaden his combat knowledge. In this podcast, we discuss the legal action against the government (but due to ongoing litigation our discussion was limited), his veganism, science and technology, environmentalism, martial arts, military service, and our general thoughts and philosophies. The goal of this podcast was to show you who Kip is, as there have already been attempts to smear his personal character publicly as he garners a lot more support than certain groups would like.

Additionally I would like to add here the quote read at the intro from Naval Ramikant:

“Believe in science” is an oxymoron

Naval: Welcome, Brett, to the eponymous Naval podcast. The topic that we started out on was the timeless principles of wealth creation. And then we touched a little bit on internal happiness and peace and well-being.I’m first and foremost a student of science. I’m a failed physicist, in the sense that I loved physics, I wanted to pursue it, but I never felt I was going to be great at it. I was more pulled into technology, which is applied science.Nevertheless, I remain a student of science. I remain fascinated by it. All of my real heroes are scientists, because I believe science is the engine that pulls humanity forward. We’re lucky to live in an age when scientific and technological progress seem not likely, but inevitable. We’ve gotten used to this idea that life always gets better. Despite all the complaining about how productivity growth is stagnant, the reality is, anyone who owns a smartphone or drives a car or even lives in a house has seen technology improve their quality of life over and over again. We take this progress for granted, and it’s thanks to science.To me, science is also the study of truth. What do we know to be true? How do we know something to be true? As I get older, I find myself incapable of having an attention span for anything that isn’t steeped in the truth.The background on this particular podcast series is that I thought I knew a lot about science. And there was a lot about science that I took for granted, such as what a scientific theory is and how scientific theories are formed.Most of us have a vague idea of it. Some people think science is what scientists do, which has a definitional problem. What is a scientist? Other people think science is making falsifiable or testable predictions, and maybe that’s closer to it. Sometimes people say, “It’s the scientific method.” And what is the scientific method? And then they start describing their junior high school chemistry experiment and lose the trail after that.Especially these days, when we’re told to “believe in science”—which is an oxymoron—people respect science, but they don’t understand what science is.The idea of what science is gets hijacked, sometimes by well-meaning people who want to convince you of the science and sometimes by not so well-meaning people who want to influence the way that you think and feel and act. ” – Naval Ramikant

Krav Maga Like anything has a lot of misinformation floating around on the internet. Either because people make things up, fail to understand or simply say things because of ego. This episode goes over some myths and misconceptions that our students requested we talk about. There are of course many more but we didn’t have all day…

He has involved his children in this passion as well as he hopes they gain the skills they need for a happier healthier life. Ted has done a variety of jobs over the years from driving to directing, has several degrees, and loves to ski something he discussed in his recent post “So one may walk in peace.” In this podcast, we go deep and personal while sharing aspects of our personal lives and the things we have learned, and how we have grown. We talk about parenting, being objective, growth, and what we have learned as we have stumbled through life with all its trials and tribulations. Ted may consider himself “Just a guy”, be we consider him a super dad because he is meaningfully and actively involved in his children’s lives. This one is for all the parents out there!
