115 | Tomas Ballada (on Japanese Traditions and Czech Existentialism)
Tomas Ballada (Tokyo Calligraphy Education) is a Czech-Polish EarthMan who moved to Japan to pursue Japanese Traditional Crafts. We talk about his life in the Czech Republic,why he chose to pursue Japanese Traditions including: swordsmanship, tea ceremony, calligraphy and more. We also discuss existentialism and whether or not it has a place in Japanese Traditional Pursuits. https://www.shogeigaku.com
In the intro I rant about internet censorship, Japanese hot springs & travel, fostering discussion, and using controversy to avoid cognitive dissonance. This takes about 20 minutes.
