No Holds Barred: Braulio Estima, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Mixed Martial Arts 



On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with three-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion and ADCC 2009 Absolute and 88 kg submission fighting champion, Braulio Estima.

Besides being one of the most talented and exciting grapplers in the world, he will be making his professional mixed martial arts debut for Shine Fights at a date and against an opponent to be announced very shortly.

While still on a seminar tour of U.S., we spoke with him by phone about his accomplishments, plans, and philosophy. We discussed why he is now entering mixed martial arts, when his first fight is likely to be, and how he is transitioning from jiu-jitsu and grappling to mixed martial arts. We discussed why he likes to fight and compete, and his philosophy which has made him such an exciting competitor who uses many innovative techniques and wins many of his matches by submission. He explained how jiu-jitsu was instrumental in steering him away from being involved in trouble as a youth, and why such martial arts training is important for the youth today. We discussed his intention of competing in mixed martial arts while continuing to compete in grappling, including the Super Fight in the 2011 ADCC World Championships. And we explored the possibility of grappling becoming popular as a spectator sport, and much more.

No Holds Barred: James Feng, Director of Fight Life 



On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with James Feng, the director of the forthcoming mixed martial arts documentary film "Fight Life".

"Fight Life" will attempt to portray the reality of the mixed martial arts business from the standpoint of the professional fighters. From receiving low pay on small shows, to fighting as a profession without any medical insurance, to surviving through their often unglamorous but grueling everyday lives, the documentary will aim at chronicling their real lives, rather than some canned and staged version passed off as a "reality" show.

Expected to be released in June 2010, "Fight Life" currently stars Frank Shamrock, Jake Shields, Nick Diaz, Lyle Beerbohm, Ryan Schultz, Matt Lindland, Miesha Tate, Gilbert Melendez, "Big" John McCarthy, and author Sam Sheridan.

We sat down with James Feng to discuss "Fight Life" and what he hopes to accomplish with this film.

Malaak Shabazz, Malcolm X's Daughter, and Ain't I A Woman Garment Worker Rally, on Carson's Corner 


Special Edition of New Jersey's Only Progressive Radio Show!

New Jersey's progressive son returns. Bob Carson is back with a vengeance:

In our main interview, journalist and activist Eddie Goldman (http://eddiegoldman.com/) spoke with Malaak Shabazz, the youngest daughter of Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz. Malaak Shabazz is a human rights and peace and social justice activist who works at the United Nations. Besides February being Black History Month, February 21 also marks the 45th anniversary of the assassination of her father, Malcolm X. We discussed the legacy of her parents, her work at the U.N., and the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center (http://theshabazzcenter.net/). The Center is located on the site of the old Audubon Ballroom where her father was assassinated in 1965.

Eddie Goldman also attended a rally this past Thursday, Feb. 11, in New York called by the Ain't I A Woman?! Campaign (http://www.aintiawoman.org/). This rally was in support of predominantly Chinese and Latino women garment workers who were protesting against sweatshop conditions at Cache, Inc., a luxury women's retail and manufacturer chain. We spoke with Doreen Wang of the Ain't I A Woman?! Campaign and two of the many workers who have filed a federal lawsuit against this company. We learned how they worked at Cache's subcontracted factory over 70 hours a week without receiving overtime pay and sometimes not even receiving minimum wage, were not allowed to take sick time, and were retaliated against and fired when they complained. We also discussed how other workers and their supporters can assist in this and other workers' struggles.
