Welcome to Episode 13 of the Judo Talk podcast and this week I talk to Cal Jones.
Cal is a self-confessed skills 'geek' and someone who is keen to question why we practice judo ... the way we practice judo.
Having never met Cal before it was a really insightful podcast with much discussion around how we learn and why we do what we do.
Cal is a judo coach and is pushing his ideas around skill acquisition. This is a perfect follow on from episode 1 with Darren Warner.

Episode 10 is with Scotland coach Gary Edwards.
The title is a bit tongue in cheek and I am sure Gary will not mind me using it ... in the discussion, we discuss the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham and I asked if Scotland were worried about England and he answered no ... why? Well, you will need to listen to the podcast to find out.
It was a great conversation about the development of players and coaches covering quite a vast subject area!
I'm sure you guys will love it.

In this episode, I talk with Olympic, World & European medal-winning coach Luke Preston more excitingly Luke is my coach.
It was a great privilege to have Luke on and I would say this is possibly my favourite episode so far!
We discuss running a full-time centre, coaching at Olympic games and sacrifices an elite coach has to make to help athletes reach their potential.
My favourite quote from the episode is "The players that are really good or even great, make you, force you to become a better coach."
I hope you enjoy the podcast - let me know who you would like to interview next ... firstname.lastname@example.org
