BTG 38 - Tom DeBlass

June 4, 2020

Dave and Rob bring in 3xADCC North American Champion, UFC veteran, Bellator veteran, coach, motivator, and savage Tom DeBlass.

The conversation starts with a strong part of Tom's principles, loyalty. They then move on into his recent signing with OneFC, and why he made that move, discussing major differences in the philosophies between western promotions and fans that were a big part of the decision.

They then talk about trash talking, and how people have gotten "brave" and insult people online, as they fear no consequences, exchanging some funny stories of trash talkers getting served.

Finally, they talk about the important of humility, and learning to accept failure and losses as part of growth, and not fearing big challenges, with David sharing his near death experience scuba diving in the Galapagos.

BTG 37 - Mahamed Aly

BTG 37 - Mahamed Aly

May 28, 2020

Rob and Dave catch up with IBJJF Black Belt World Champion and all around stud Mahamed Aly. Many of us know him for his high flying throws, but in this interview, Mahamed reveals a humble and insightful martial artist looking to grow.

They start off the conversation going over his ADCC experience and working the rule set, before going deeper into the meaning of martial arts for him. From the search of happiness, how purpose changes during life, and what it takes to remain on top.

Mahamed also shares his goals with his social media followers, and how he hopes to be useful to the community he serves - a duty that many people have lost in the age of "what's it in it for me?" and people focusing on making money instead of making happiness.

As the first IBJJF Absolute champion to win by submission, especially with a foot lock, they talk about how the culture of cross training has changed dramatically over the years; from training in different disciplines to training in other academies.
