Episode 57: On Defense

November 02, 2018

This week, another freeform conversation with health and wellness guru (and happy Systema advocate) Howard Jacobson. In this episode, we talk principles of defense. Much has already been said about defense from a physical or legal standpoint. So instead, we look at the very idea of defense, asking questions like:

  • "the best defense is a good offense" - True? False? Why?

  • how confidence in defense provides options beyond conflict

  • extending the concept of defense to diet, lifestyle, relationships
