Customer Reviews

Stephan earned this review!

When you live in a remote area of Saskatchewan and you jones so much for the jits that you train on a kitchen floor then you are Stephan Kestings. Really well produced!

Great podcast!!

Stephan has interesting and informative guests covering many topics. His interviewing style brings out the best in his guests. Keep them coming Stephan.

Phenomenal podcast

Been doing Jujutsu of various types since about 1996. The scope of this podcast is amazing in that it covers not only the ne-Waza of BJJ but also aspects of some top tier Judo and JJJ people. Very good overall, and spot on personal protection advice. Covering the gamut of hand to hand ranges Mr Kesting is approaching what might be the most comprehensive podcast of martial arts on the internet today.
