The Casual Martial Artist 15: Respect and Hierarchy in Martial Arts

July 9, 2019 @ 4:27 am

Al and Marcus discuss some of their thoughts and experiences on respect and hierarchry in the martial arts.

Note: There were some issues with my microphone. I tried to edit them the best I could, so I apologize if the occasional glitch gets distracting.
