Podcast Notes Playlist: Latest Episodes

Artificial Intelligence Podcast Podcast Notes Key Takeaways “There is an issue with goal setting, nobody teaches you how to transition from the goal to reality”– Travis StevensTravis never identified as an Olympian. He is proud of Travis, not proud of Travis the Olympian.You should take pride in the skillset, not the title“Stories aren’t always about winning, they’re about continuing to fight”– Lex FridmanTravis’ horrifying injury history and Olympic challenges to get to the podium are a testament to the process oftentimes being more valuable than the result“If I can’t find my endpoints, that means everyone else has given up before me” – Travis StevensTravis doesn’t comprehend athletes that don’t make weight – it means that you gave up a long time ago, prior to stepping on the scaleAlthough, he doesn’t believe nutrition should be the focal point of a weight cut or fight preparationIt’s only suffering if you expect the other side – the cost/benefit of your nutrition can be managed by what your mental expectations from the food are“I want a Snickers bar when I’m tired. I need a little sugar, it makes me feel better, what do you want me to do?”– Travis StevensThis analysis can be applied to many things in our lives, happiness/success is subjective and rarely lives in a narrativeMain principles of Judo: Having the lowest center of gravity and making your opponent unbalanced (derives from pulling, faking shots, subtle head movements)Travis doesn’t always know how he’s going to win, but he knows how to make it very difficult for you to win“The number one skillset Judo is going to teach you is the ability to give people false hope”– Travis StevensRead the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgTravis Stevens is the 2016 Olympic Judo silver medalist and BJJ black belt.

S2|E8: TRAVIS STEVENS pt1 (USA 81kg) Expect to Win

The Judo Edit

In the first 10-15 seconds, he threw a closed fisted grip, and it hit me right in the eye and split it. That kind of set the tempo for the match. And from then on out, it was less of a judo match than an “I’m going to break your will”... It was the Olympic games so neither of us was going to give an inch. With an Olympic silver medal at 81kgs, there’s a lot more to Travis Stevens’ story than just being the angry American. Starting judo as an overweight kid, Travis shares the relentless mindset that pushed him to the top ranks of the world’s judoka and the mental transformation which allowed him to perform. He also retells in his own words his infamous rivalry with Ole Bischof, and the match that will haunt him forever. ***Stevens v Bischof https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8sFxkleXCw&t=352s Judo NSW new club free resources https://www.judonsw.com.au/?utm_source=JudoEdit&utm_medium=Podcast Acta Wear apparel 15% discount: code judo15 at https://actawear.com/ Follow the podcast instagram.com/thejudoedit Soundtrack courtesy of BenSound--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thejudoedit/message
