Yin & Young EP26: Martial Arts, Anime, and Adult Content - Guest Aaron "Koi" Estrada

An in depth discussion with returning guest Aaron Estrada about talent/effort in the martial arts, our favorite animes, and a short talk about porn. (WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT & LANGUAGE)

Improvised piano intro by James.

Nature vs. Nurture. Some people are just naturally more talented in martial arts, sports, or a specific activity than others. The people who are talented and passionate will get to the 99th percentile.

You have to do things with intent.

Fighting on instinct.

Some jiu-jitsu schools don't allow students to roll until they reach their blue belt.

Discussion: Not allowing students to roll or spar from the beginning VS Allowing them to roll and spar right away.

We talk about anime we're currently watching and reminisce about Dragonball Z.

Is Totoro the angel of death? (also see "Ghibli producer kills the death angel theory").

Discussion of anime: Watching subbed versus dubbed and the depiction of Asians and Caucasians. Reference photo from the anime "Major":

The pursuit of perfection. We mention Jiro Dreams of Sushi as an example.

Conversation turns to fapping frequency and how porn affects us.

Briefly talk about the Vegas shooting.
