Episode 104 - Analyzing the Enemy with Robin Black

Hacker Valley Studio

In this episode of the Hacker Valley Studio podcast, hosts Ron and Chris provide a very special episode as they interview Robin Black.  Robin is a martial arts practitioner and commentator, and he is arguably the best martial arts analyst in the world.  He believes secrets to the universe lie in the sacred moments of combat - and that couldn’t be any more true in cyber security.  So what does cyber security have to do with martial arts and analysis?  Ron and Chris invite listeners into the conversation to find out! As the conversation begins, Robin shares about his background, emphasizing the fact that he has the privilege of doing what he loves.  Robin’s work involves taking events and crafting a story in real time; the task is in many ways similar to that of cyber security, but as a general rule,  it requires more speed.  And so, Ron and Chris wonder, what is Robin’s mindset as an analyst?  Robin explains how he developed his interest and skill as an analyst, slowly building skill, sharpening his ability with language, and consciously deciding to go back to the roots of martial arts in his analysis rather than approaching the work as a television announcer typically would.  He is an art curator of violence, so to speak, and is committed to “nutrient rich” commentary.  Moving forward in the conversation, Ron and Chris wonder about what advice Robin would offer to the “little guy.”  Using the example of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Robin explains the value of knowing more, having more knowledge, being able to change, and being confident.  Such strengths help the apparent underdog in both fighting and cyber security.  Much like they considered unhackability with previous guests, Ron and Chris also raise the notion of an unbeatable fighter, and Robin details the reasons why such a fighter is a myth.  Listeners will learn about such things as the cracks and flaws in fighting (which are located in the root of fighting - within belief systems), the workings and danger of muscle memory, how Robin dissects fighters, and how Robin thinks about cyber security! 1:45 - This special episode features Robin Black! 3:19 - The conversation first turns to Robin’s background and what he’s doing today. 5:31 - What is Robin’s mindset as an analyst? 11:21 - Ron and Chris wonder what advice Robin would give to the “little guy.” 14:02 - Is there such a thing as an unbeatable fighter? 17:17 - The episode turns to the flaws and cracks within fighting. 20:54 - What is the component of muscle memory, and what role does it play? 24:31 - Ron and Chris want to know how Robin dissects fighters. 33:24 - Does Robin have any questions about cyber security?
