OoM 048: Martial Arts, Mindfulness, and Mastery with Rodney King

You know as well as I that protecting our loved ones is a key component of being a man. That’s what I thought we’d talk about when I started the conversation with my guest, Rodney King.

The conversation quickly went another route as Rodney and I talked about how self-defense and martial arts can you become more mindful and achieve mastery in all areas of your life.

“The reason we want to learn to defend ourselves is because it promises an opportunity to become more as a man.” Tweet That
