Today I am joined by David Christian from The Modern Martial Artist Youtube channel. We start nerding out a bit about martial arts & boxing, but we end up talking about philosophy and life in general. Among other things, we chat about Willie Pep & Taoism & Bruce Lee, JKD & Jon Jones, taking the best from opposing viewpoints and mixing them together, how identity leads to dogma, a duality of Yin and Yang rather than good and evil, existential anxiety, ducks & Zen koans, wu wei, why training martial arts, and much more.
