MTG 061: Self Defense, Learning Martial Arts Online and Dealing With Bullies with Shane Fazen from

Muay Thai Guy Podcast – Episode 61

ShaneSquareProfilePicI really enjoyed doing this podcast with Shane Fazen from because we both have a lot in common. Our names sound alike, we love Muay Thai, we’re both ravishingly handsome and we’re both online bloggers who have to deal with a lot of the same challenges.

Needless to say, I’ve been following Shane Fazen’s youtube channel for a little awhile now because his videos are badass and edited extremely well. Oh, and of course, they’re loaded with practical tips that cover a wide variety of topics including Muay Thai, self defense, Taekwondo, Jiu Jitsu, and much more. In my interview with Shane, we talk a whole range of topics including:

  • His start in martial arts and his gradual evolution from Taekwondo to Muay Thai to Boxing and a handful of other disciplines.
  • What martial art he thinks is most effective in a self defense situation.
  • Why he began his Youtube channel and how it’s grown to nearly 30 million views and 250k subscribers.
  • How he’s able to find the time to make all of these videos while not skimping on quality.
  • His online classes and why he believes online learning can be beneficial to anyone’s training.
  • The online trolls that are rampant on Youtube and how he’s been able to take the hate in stride.
  • How awesome it’s been inspiring younger kids who have been bullied to stand up for themselves.
  • Why bullying is such an epidemic and the best ways to approach a bully.
  • The difference between self defense and a fighting sport.
  • And much, much more!
