The internet’s leading podcast on realistic self-defence, martial arts, and the management of violence. Joe Saunders is a leading experts in occupational violence and verbal de-escalation, as well as a lifelong martial artist. On this show, Joe interviews the world’s leading experts in the management of violence and also provides his own take on how we can keep our families and communities safe.

The Managing Violence Podcast is dedicated to the study of three core elements of the violence:

Hoplology: The study of human combative behaviour and performance (includes martial arts, self-defence, combatives, war)

Psychology: The study of mind and behaviour (in particular, evolutionary, social and developmental psychology)

Criminology: The study of crime and deviant behaviour

We draw inspiration from the warrior scholars of the past as we interview and learn from the warrior scholars of our present, to inspire and inform the warrior scholars of our future.
