BTG 51 - Stare Down Language

May 13, 2021

Rob and Dave get back together after some long travels and David recounts his experience at his recent retreat in Costa Rica at Hero Academy, exploring the bonds forged through martial arts training.

They then get into the importance of the stare down - a classic pre-fight ritual that some people handle poorly. The two discuss the psychological impact it can have, and why it's important to play it right. This builds into a conversation about language, free speech, BJJ vocabulary, and curriculums.

BTG 47 - Struggling

BTG 47 - Struggling

January 22, 2021

Dave and Rob have been struggling to get podcasts up on a regular schedule, lol, but that isn't what they sat down to talk about. :)

Rather, they go into the importance of facing adversity, losing, tasting defeat, and being able to cope with the consequences. In a world where there are participation medals from first to 20th place, grading systems changing to avoid using "failing", and kids sports that won't keep score - we have a generation growing up that doesn't know how to lose even in the most meaningless of ways. So the two breakdown the importance of struggling and the many benefits it can bring.

BTG 46 - Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather

BTG 46 - Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather

December 18, 2020

2020 has thrown us so many curve balls that even Sandy Koufax would have to bow down to. In the fight world, we have had our share of these cruel jokes, and Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul is definitely among them.

One of them is a boxing legend with an unblemished 50-0 record. The other is YouTube star with an 0-1 record. They aren't even remotely in the same weight class, experience, or skill level.

It's a freak show.

What does this say to the current state of boxing, and is MMA any different?

November 6, 2020

It's been 4 days since the 2020 US Election, and still no president has been called. It's a weird time and Rob and Dave dip their toes into the election and how IBJJF would have handled it better, lol!

They then move on to UFC's Anderson Silva and Khabib Nurmagomedov's retirements, and David finally watches the Social Dilemma and Money Ball, and gives his take on how statistical analysis of BJJ and MMA could take these sports to the next level.

BTG 43 - IBJJF Heel Hooks

BTG 43 - IBJJF Heel Hooks

October 15, 2020

Rob and Dave come back to talk about one of the biggest developments in recent BJJ history - the IBJJF allowing heel hooks in the brown and black belt divisions of no gi competition.

The two talk about all the implications of this move and how it can help the sport grow. Along the way, they discuss the pros and cons of active top class competitors making instructional videos and "giving away" their secrets to success - a phenomenon unique in the professional sporting world, the woes of being a big guy sparring little people, and why video games used to be more rewarding.
