CT059 Peter Boylan: Musings of a Budo Bum

November 5, 2017

This week, Peter Boylan joins the show from Detroit, Michigan.  Peter is a long-time practitioner of Judo, Iaido, and Jo-Do.  Peter is the author of a weekly blog, The Budo Bum and he just released a great new book based on his blog: Musings of a Budo Bum

In the show, Peter and I talk about how he got started in martial arts, his experiences training in Japan, the meaning of kata, and of course we hit some of the topics he covers in the book.

You can find out more about Peter Boylan on his blog at, and you can find his book, Musings of a Budo Bum on Amazon.
