This week's guest is Mr. Tim Broadwater, an American Sumo practitioner and a member of the Appalachian Sumo Club in Morgantown, West Virginia. Tim is a student of other martial arts, notably Judo and Karate, Jeet Kune Do, and has studied some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as well. Tim also competes in strongman competitions. Tim is 6'7" (2.03m) tall and weighs 350 pounds (159k). He tells us that Sumo is bigger in the USA than most people realize (yes, pun intended!). Tim has trained in the use of defensive firearms and has taken a tactical medical course to supplement that training.
Tim is a User Experience professional, and has written the book, "UX FMK user experience: F**k, Marry, or Kill," available on Amazon.com. He is also co-host of the upcoming "Design Thinking Games Podcast," about game design. In addition to being a martial artist and information professional, Tim is an avid gamer.
