"Hands down the best podcast on Wing Chun & Jeet Kune Do" - iTunes Reviewer
A podcast where the hosts pull no punches... on each other.
It all started when...
...Big Sean asked his buddy Alex if he wouldn't mind recording their martial arts chats as a podcast. The rest, as they say, is history!
Dudes of Kung Fu is now the number one podcast discussion Wing Chun and Jeet Kun Do. It might be the only one discussing BOTH that doesn't change the facts.
The Dudes have not only continued to have great conversations, they have fantastic guests joining them on their podcast as well! Past guests include Sifu David Peterson (Wong Shun Leung Ving Tsun expert), Burton Richardson (JKD Unlimited founder), Jim Roselando (Pin Sun Wing Chun), and Steve Golden (A student of Bruce Lee himself!)
While the Dudes sincerely love what they do, they couldn't do it without the ongoing support of fans. Click here to find out how you too can support the Dudes and the continuation of this podcast that is so valuable to the world of martial arts!
The Dudes of Kung Fu are Alex Richter (the Kung Fu Genius) and BIG Sean Madigan. This is not an altered photo, they are both black and white comic book characters in real life.
