A Rough ‘n’ Tumble Ramble with Mark Hatmaker: Solo Training, Research Methods, Rituals, and Engagement

It was supreme pleasure and privilege to have enticed the immortal Mark Hatmaker into sitting down for an hour of conversation.  If you know Mark, getting him to stop reading, practicing, training, and exploring is not easy.

We talked about Rough ‘n’ Tumble martial arts, solo training, our research methods, the power of ritual, and the importance of engagement.  Really fun — perhaps we’ll do another one if I can get him to sit still!

Who is Mark Hatmaker?  He is an author, a martial arts coach, and relentless autodidact who has written dozens of books on martial arts, fitness, and self-defense selling over 175,000 copies.  He has produced over 40 instructional videos and has been described as “a walking encyclopedia of wrestling holds.”  Training with Mark will change your life.

Go getcha some.
