I had never played that one before so why not give it a shot?  I did, and got a new scar to show for it.  Of course, I could tell you the new sport I tried out this weekend but then you would have no reason to listen to the show!  I talk about the newest Athlete On Fire sponsored podcast for Active Entrepreneurs and what our goal is for it.  I share stories from a good friend that is moving on from Colorado. From helping me race direct around the country to foam deals that seemed more like drug deals.  Camping with our boys and road trips to Idaho, I give him a proper podcast send off!  Hope you enjoy the behind the scenes look at Athlete On Fire in this episode of the Weekend Warrior Show!

Artist. Teacher. Speaker.  These define our guest who takes us on his journey to where he is now as an unlikely business owner in Seattle.  We find out why keeping some traditions and letting others go is important as he says it best, "how do we take the beauty of the past for our present."  An academic in all things martial arts he shares a condensed history of the origins of the sport he loves. How he went from 5 to 60 students and why he is vested in each student.  We learn some great mental tips for competing and overall training philosophy.  Plug those earphones in for another inspiring Athlete On Fire.
