Today I talk with Kathy Hubble who is a professional Stuntwoman and multiple time Canadian National Judo Champion.  She shares how she got started in stunts, how she got injured on set in a Jacky Chan action movie, and how Judo helped her stuntwork.  We also delved into the differences in between Judo and BJJ energies, transitioning from throws directly into submissions, and the funny dynamic of battling people on the mat but then being best friends afterwards.  This was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy it!

If you're enjoying the podcast then it's hard to overstate how great it would be to get a rating or a review for it on whichever podcast platform you use.  That's incredibly important and it really helps me put out more episodes.
