My ole brother arms and conflict resolution specialist Stephen Kotev, joins me for some rough-diamond fun. We talk growing up in conflicted families, how conflict is about more than words and logic, Paul Linden, fight-flight and the physiology of conflict, self regulation and the best quick-win centring techniques, how to stop interrupting and listen better (guilty), aikido vs BJJ, the joys of competition, humility in martial arts, authenticity vs tricks in conflict, physical vs verbal triggers, why guns are fun and he offers a final challenge to kill and flay a poor little chicken. This one is quite sweary and non PC from the start, so avoid it if you are comically weak millennial who does not take responsibility for their own reactions.
