Christian Novetzke on Kung Fu Fighting and Eastern Religions (Encore Presentation)
Get into the octagon with Prof. Christian Novetzke as we spar intellectually about the relationship between the martial arts and Eastern religions. Karate, jujitsu, tai chi, tae kwon do, and even yoga are discussed in our fascinating interview that also explores Buddhism, Zen, Hinduism, Taoism, Confucianism and the connection between Christianity and the mixed martial arts (i.e., cage fighting). We discover the importance of self-actualization that connects all these different philosophies and martial activities.
We are taking a break for the Easter holiday but will return with fresh episodes soon. Enjoy this great interview from our archives.
