I Love This Podcast
"I get the feeling that Sifu Smith is an excellent Martial Artist and a teacher. His voice, in a soft North Carolinian accent is very soothing, despite the occassional mispronunciations here and there which he claims to be working on. I can tell that Sifu Smith makes a great effort to produce an entertaining and informative show."
