So, you have the best athlete you can possibly have at the end of what they call the development pathway.[00:17:49] The HRV measure that is just changed my life, I can really feel it. I'm using their time to the best possible way to develop them and not wasting too much.[00:19:02] I learned a lot about motivation. And I also learned though a lot about I don't want to say this the difference between practice and competition.[00:21:11] first thing I tried to teach on teaching coaches is get out of your own experience and makes sure that it's only one part of your toolbox, you've learned that this work, but it isn't the same for everyone.[00:21:42] When you're working with an athlete something happens and you learn from that and it's a circle.[00:22:18] Here's how I'm feeling. Here's what you're saying. How do we find this middle ground and co-design what's best for the sample size of one that's in front of you?[00:23:11] You have to understand the culture in which you are coaching that is critical.[00:27:50] I've seen other Western coaches come to China and not be as understanding of their culture and really have a hard time.[00:29:25] They could describe some physiological things better than any Western people, because Western people will always equate their feelings with the results.[00:30:22] We always evaluate decisions based on the outcome when it could have been a completely wrong decision and we just got lucky and you need to look at the decision-making process, not the outcome.[00:33:38] And when we learn how to walk, we don't teach people how to walk by lifting their leg up and stretching it out. And then basically the body self organizes and shifts weight from one side to the other. [00:36:11] What we have to do is build better human beings and they will perform better.[00:41:20] Not judge other coaches and programs so harshly by the results of their success.[00:41:40] A lot of times, and there's a well lucky everyone's career, certainly mine, where can we get a lot of talent and get success. And people think you're smarter than you are. And that's not always the case. And there's a lot of geniuses that the right kids who've just never walked through the door.[00:44:02] We have to have ruthless commitment to improvement and open mindset.[00:44:22] If we can have some incremental improvement, every session every day even if a hundred other things go wrong, if you get better at one thing the dimension of all that will lead somewhere good in some way.

Today on the show I have a conversation with Chris Martin a Marc Laimon, BJJ Brown Belt, and cofounder of two Nova Martial Arts and Fitness academies in Wisconsin. This is a timely episode, depending on when you are listening, May is stroke awareness month. In 2017 Chris suffered a massive brain stroke from a jiu jitsu choke during practice that left him paralyzed and speechless on the mat from the result of a carotid artery dissection. However, that did not stop him from getting back on the mats and he practices to this very day while still managing the two academies and running jiujitsuinsurance.com. Chris has been spreading awareness of how strokes can affect families and communities. He also shares stories from other survivors to educate students and coaches in the jiu jitsu community, who need to be aware of these dangers. Since his accident, Chris has been a go-to person for advice, support, and help to spread the message of safety and awareness to the jiu jitsu community. He also is working with a medical doctor and hospital to publish a medical journal article relating to the 100 + stories (strokes from chokes) that continue to surface each month. I want to preface this episode by saying that I'm a believer in transparency, open, honest and at times difficult communication. I find that these types of crucial conversations are critical for growth. I believe we are at an inflection point in the growth of Jiu Jitsu where we need to have such conversations. I would also like to emphasize that I believe that every adult should have the freedom to choose what is and is not acceptable for themselves. As of late, I've noticed the pendulum of BJJ media may have swung back to an almost dogmatic belief in only hard training. I'm always wary of absolutes, I tend to find that the truth often lies somewhere in the shades of grey. Tim Ferris once said about the topic of nootropics (aka brain enhancing related drugs), "There is typically no biological free lunch.". I think the same could be said for constant hard training and repetitive strangulation. Some housekeeping notes: Keep in mind that Chris's stroke did cause some ongoing neurological damage so although he sounds great on the episode there may be times where his thought process stops and jumps to other items a bit out of context.

Chris Martin & Joe Alessi, Bonus: On Fitness, John Williams and Chick Corea
Anthony Plog on Music
In the Bonus Room, Chris and Joe talk about how fitness is important to them, and what it was like to work with the musical geniuses John Williams and Chick Corea on solo pieces. And, as an aside, why Joe wants my son Jason to come to Canada to give him table tennis lessons (spoiler alert: he hates to lose to other NY Philharmonic players).
Chris Martin & Joe Alessi, Part 2: On Auditions and Being a Successful Student
Anthony Plog on Music
In Part 2 of our conversation, Joe and Chris discuss their own auditions and give insights that I think could be very valuable to students who will be taking auditions in the future. In addition, since both played with the Philadelphia Orchestra (at different times), they speak about how the principal players at the time, Glenn Dodson and David Bilger, became mentors for them. They also compare how they practiced as students compared to now and, finally, qualities that they see in great students.
