The Martial Arts - THE RAM with Sensei Christopher Hein
Show Notes

In the self-defense, tactical firearms, and sometimes in the martial arts communities we hear the term "sheepdog." This is most often in the context that people can be divided into three groups: sheep - most people, wolves - those who prey on people, and sheepdogs - those who protect their people (the sheep) from the human predators (the wolves).  But there may be a fourth category - The Ram!  Sensei Christopher Hein, owner and chief instructor of Aikido of Fresno and host of the Aikido: Discussed Podcast joins us to talk about The Ram.  Chris is an aikido black belt and has trained in BJJ, submission grappling, MMA, and HEMA, as well as firearms.  Chris posits this fourth category, The Ram, as one who is capable of violence but does not seek it out as may the sheepdog, but is able to spring into action if and when it is required.  Tune in!
