Kicking & Screaming with Melanie Gibson.
Melanie and I met online. We have a mutual friend, Matt Jardine, who suggested that we should talk together as we might have a few things in common. Matt was right - Melanie and I have quite few things in common, both of us do martial arts, write books and support mental health. It was a very interesting conversation and I hope you will enjoy it. Please find a few more words about Melanie from her author page below. If you would like to check Melanie's work please follow links below. Melanie Gibson was an independent woman with a good job, multiple college degrees, and a condo in the trendy part of town. She also had a few mental illnesses, a minor substance abuse problem, and rotten relationship skills. She was a high-functioning crazy who needed a good kick in the pants, literally and metaphorically.

Challenges with Danny Mason
In this episode I talk with my student Danny Mason. Danny has been training with me for quite some time and is over half way to black belt, and at first glance this seems ordinary. However, it is far from ordinary. Things that we take for granted can for Danny be a major challenge due to his autism. Danny describes the world through his lens and what Karate means for him, what benefits he has gotten from practicing and what he would like to achieve in the future. I hope that you will enjoy this episode, we had to record it outside so you have a nice background of birds, and there is also a guest appearance of Danny's 3 month old niece.

The Way of Knockdown With Gary Chamberlain
I met Sensei Gary a few years back, it was a great seminar. He struck me as a very straight forward and honest teacher, we stayed in contact via social media and I was right, Gary is an honest person and if you ask for an opinion you get one, not necessarily the one you wanted but always honest. I like that. So in this episode we talked about mental health and Karate, Gary's experience in Kyokushin and Enshin Karate and his career in the Fire service.  I have thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and hope you will too. If you would like to support the Fire Fighters Charity you can do so by purchasing one of Gary's books. The way to do this is to donate to the Fire Fighters Charity and send a copy of the message to Sensei Gary, he will then send you a copy of the book in pdf format. The books that Sensei Gary has written include: The Way of Knockdown; The Way of Knockdown - Getting Ready to Fight; and One Thousand Degrees at the Ceiling - Life on the Thin Red Line.

Overcoming Obstacles with Tiffany Richards
In this episode I talk with Tiffany Richards from the Peaceful Warrior and Healing Centre.  Our conversation revolves around mental health, overcoming obstacles, infuriating martial artists and a female perspective on self-defence for women. You can sense that Tiffany is super passionate about her martial arts. It was very interesting to listen to her martial story from starting in martial arts to becoming a co-owner of the school and working behind the scenes, to running a self-protection programme.

Conversation with Lee Taylor
Through my friends I had heard positive opinions about Lee and his work, I even exchanged with him thoughts about mental health and depression but we have never met in person. I was very happy that Lee kindly agreed to join me on Accidental Podcast Or Something Like That, where we discussed all things Karate, mental health, our dislike of presenting on both audio and video platforms. I didn't expect to have so many similarities, and it was a great conversation. I hope you will get some value from listening to both of us whinging about technology.  Please check out Lee's work at the links below: Website Facebook App If you would like to support the show with no cost to you and you shop with Amazon, please feel free to use my affiliate link, for which I get a small commission when you purchase something - note that it is completely free for you!  Please find the link below. https://amzn.to/3qqfuhy 🥋About: Les Bubka is an author, Karate coach, entrepreneur and creator of the #Hikite4ever T-shirt.

Strong & Caring
When I was establishing my club, I was looking for a meaningful motto, I looked around and could see that most people use the same quotes. Fall seven time get up eight, Black belt is a white belt who never gave up Black belt is just beginning etc. You get the idea what people use on their dojo walls, not that there is anything wrong with using them, but none of them really resonated with me. I was undecided what to use and was jumping between a few.

Celebrating our 50th episode with Jamie Gray
Wow it's the fiftieth episode of Accidental Podcast! In this episode I have the pleasure to talk with Jamie Gray.  Jamie loves to engage in banter about my height, and I don't hesitate to give back to him about his.  All round he is a great martial artist and great fun to be around, he is very open and friendly despite his size. Jamie seems to know everyone in Karate, he also has a very focused point of view on his club and who is allowed in. I bet I could sneak in into his dojo unnoticed via cracks in the wood. I'm envious about Jamie's new dojo, also Jamie is the only guest who doesn't want to promote his webpage or Facebook group. If you beg him for long enough he might invite you into his group!  Well if Jamie doesn't want to promote himself, one shorty will.

Interview With Dr. James Hatch
Some time ago I was listening to a a friend's podcast, Conversations on Karate, and they were chatting with a person that I had never heard of, Dr James Hatch.  I really enjoyed hearing about his approach to Karate, weapons training and tradition.  A lot of our views are polar opposite to each other, but at the same time I can appreciate his viewpoint and reasoning.  Fast forward a few months and here we are talking with James Sensei and having a great time exchanging our views on mental health, traditions and weapons.  Did we agree?  Well, you'll have to listen and form your own opinion.  At one point James and I agreed that it can be embarrassing to be a foreigner in a land when you are not 100% fluent in the language - let me know who you think made the worst faux pas...  If you would like to read more of James' opinions and articles please check his blog:  https://www.jamesmhatch.com/  If you would like to support the show with no cost to you and you shop with Amazon, please feel free to use my affiliate link, for which I get a small commission when you purchase something - note that it is completely free for you!  Please find the link below. https://amzn.to/369jbki 🥋About: Les Bubka is an author, Karate coach, entrepreneur and creator of the #Hikite4ever T-shirt.

Interview with Keith Dewey Hypnotherapist
Life is unpredictable, we never know who we will meet, when and for what reason. My friendship with Keith is one of those cases. Keith appeared from seemingly nowhere to join our club and we have become friends. We discovered that we have similar interests in mental health, with us both doing our bit in different areas. I was intrigued about the hypnotherapy work that Keith does and I thought that it would be great to have a chat about it. After this podcast was recorded I did go under hypnosis with Keith and it was not what I expected, in a positive way.
