So that one man sharpens another. I think that it is very true. If you are not in a training environment where you are getting smacked in the head, you are getting tapped out, you are getting challenged on a daily basis, then you are not getting any better. You’re not improving. Your workout partners are a very important piece of your progression as an athlete and the character that you are building as a person as well. Those are key components and finding that right place is a piece of it.”Randy Couture “Wrestling For Fighting” Article of the week: How to Accelerate Your Brazilian Jiujitsu (BJJ) Game By Brandon Groce From appliedmma.com Lots of great BJJ and MMA information at http://www.roymarshjiujitsu.com/ Email Roy at email@example.com Epi 17 Interview with BJJ Black Belt Roy Marsh Epi 16 Brian Freeman- Training BJJ with a T4 Spinal Cord Injury At the end of the podcast we give details of how you can get a free BjjBrick Podcast gi patch.
