A Peaceful Approach to Self-Defense -- the Internal Fighting Arts Podcast Interview with Paul Linden
Is it possible to love your attacker? Can you find the fun within misery?
Paul Linden has a unique perspective on self-defense. He is the chief instructor at Aikido of Columbus (Ohio), and the Columbus Center for Movement Studies. He holds a sixth degree black belt in Aikido and a black belt in Karate. He earned a bachelor's degree in philosophy and a Ph.D. in physical education. He is an instructor in the Feldenkrais Method of body awareness, and he developed the "Being in Movement" mindbody training.
Since his late fifties, Paul has also been faced with a challenge that has required the practical application of both philosophy and his knowledge of body awareness. Fourteen years ago, he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.
Paul Linden is my guest on the 34th edition of the Internal Fighting Arts podcast.
