38. The warrior in the garden - with Daniel Strauss

Normalised Activity

Daniel Strauss is well know for his Brazilian jiu-jitsu but he is far more than just a grappler. With deep interest in anthropology, the history and mythology of stone lifting. We cover these topics, and how grappling is interwoven into the history of the world, how perspective normalises training techniques, and how denim is the fabric that athletes are missing out on. A true renaissance man. * As ever, if you value what we do, consider buying us a coffee to help keep all this going - https://ko-fi.com/normalisedactivity.
