This is definitely the most uncustomary conversation I have had on the Vital Veda Podcast show.
By uncustomary I mean our guest, my friend Luke, talks about violence and swears more than any other guest that has been on this show.
HOWEVER, the reason why this is relevant and we recorded this podcast episode is because Luke’s work and approach is very aligned with the Vaidyas – natural law, and even specially Ayurveda, how nature governs health.
Luke is a big proponent of prevention and expanding awareness. If you apply Lukes teachings with the right mindset, that will be playing a big role in your physical and mental health and wellness.
ABOUT OUR GUEST: LUKE HOLLOWAY
Luke Holloway is the founder of Raw Combat International, an organisation dedicated to providing education & training in holistic approach to preparedness; personal security, self protection, survival & martial Skills.
With Raw Combat International, Luke has developed over 90 branches worldwide and now the ‘Get Street Smart’ app.
Quickly becoming a Youtube hit with US & Japanese audiences, Luke’s Youtube Videos (Now at Over 120M Views) first gained the attention of martial artists and other industry professionals by sharing his ‘RAW’ approach to both martial & aurvival skills based on door-work in Australia and Japan, where he spent most of his adult life in the night life.
This led him into private security, close protection and advisory for first responders, law enforcement, military and national security. These public services are in desperate need of something eealistic, logical, practical & functional, and that is exactly what Luke is providing them.
With over a decade of real world experience on the streets having to navigate the politics & drama of the ‘Night Life’ in two cultures it has become his mission to educate people in the realities of violence, street crime and criminal behaviour.
