When Results Matter-
In this podcast snippet, Matt talks about the importance of being right when it matters, despite how we may feel.
When Results Matter –
In last months podcast Matt did an interview at PSU with Professor Peter Boghossian. The interview also featured some Q and A with the students. For those of us that have been around SBG for a while, a lot of this may seem redundant. It’s easy to forget that people are still falling for the same old tricks everyday. Regardless of BJJ or the popularity of the UFC martial arts charlatans are still out there, and Matt is happy to carry the flag against them.

Capacity consists of things like strength, speed, aggressiveness, and most importantly techniques. There is a lot to learn in Jiu Jitsu!
