Karate : ReConstructing the History of this Traditional Martial Art : KFP 89  

Karate is not my Traditional Martial Art Style. So that brings both strengths and weaknesses to the project.

Strength : I have no vested interested in which style of Karate you practice
Weakness : I know more about the history and development of Karate that any technical components such as a kata.

How did I work around my weakness?

Finding a 24 page essay by a Ph.D in Cultural Anthropology, plus degreed in many other academic area's. Who is in the region, practices and knows a lot about the development of the Cultural and Traditional Martial Art, you know as a Karate.

First Chronicled Mixed Martial Arts in US : MMA : KFP 86  

During this podcast I will look at recent developments in what I am calling promotional kungfu. Martial Arts strictly for advertising, not even worth a show.

Then Martial Arts being utilized by high end, financial professionals, in 2016. Which leads me to an article on nearly same topic in 1988.

That article introduced a gentleman who was a bonds trademan on the stock exchange. He also owned the first martial arts school in the mid-western United States.

The man he worked for and bought the school from was a legend. The Jujitsu man that was a fighter in the first chronicled MMA match in the US.
