All praise to Brockman!
In this upside down world of new fangled martial arts like Brazilian JuJipsu and MooTei few fighters bring the Budo to the ring the way Jonathan 'I don't got a nickname' Kennedy does. When asked about his 'budo' Jonathan replies with one word, "Brockman."
Interested I pushed on and asked for more details, this is what I learnt.
Brockman is more than a man he's a way of life. You don't just 'do Brockman' you have to 'live Brockman'. The Samurinja (a hybrid of Samurai and Ninja) philisophy the is the core of Brockmans teachings can be summed up in one word:
Train your fucking ass off.
Okay, I guess that was more than one word but you get the point. Training is key. From early morning meditative punching to driving of the hands into glasses of cold water to 'toughen them up' the athlete is expected to 'go beyond fear' to a new place a place called 'Successvilleopolis'.
Truly budo is not dead it is being held captive and probably tied to a wall with a ball gag in it's mouth by Brockman.
All praise to Brockman!
