There are many similarities between the Samurai of feudal Japan and the knights of medieval Europe. In this episode we compare their code of conduct with our modern day code of Chivalry.
In this video, we discuss “Cancel Culture” and what it means, and doesn’t mean, with an understanding of the chivalric virtues.

“To educate a person in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to Society.” – Theodore Roosevelt
In this episode, we discuss an SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) specific topic. During a knighting ceremony, the Sovereign performing the knighting delivers a buffet (pronounced with a hard “t”) as the last time the knight should take such a strike without answering (“Let this be the last blow you take unanswered”).
This episode was prompted by a recent knighting where the buffet resulted in much online discussion.

If we are fortunate as a martial artist, or anyone that pursues excellence in a skill, we eventually find a place in our minds that is both freeing and calming. That taps into our training and our understanding of our sport or art. What can it look like? And is there a way to train for that state specifically?
In martial arts, like many endeavors, different approaches to skill can be identified as “Analytical” or “Instinctive.” While different, they are not opposed. We discuss how both can be integrated and combined to support the progress of an individual as they gain skill and experience in nearly any pursuit.
