Transparency PodCast 8-17-14 - ruff stuff

it's not easy but that's why we do it. In this episode we interview a long timer, Serena, and discover her thought on suicide, martial arts, and staying true to the meaning of youth development. We also talk with seasoned instructors, Randal Reeves and Jeremy Smith on how they handle talking to students when 'ruff stuff' happens on the floor. Martial Art instructors know a lot about kicking and punching, at Aim High, we train for more than 'just' that.
