In this episode BJJ and Judo black belt Mike Zenga shares some of the lessons, commonalities, and differences he’s seen from working one-on-one with 19 BJJ, Judo and ADCC world champions. Do they all train the same way? Eat healthy food or junk? Drill, spar or do lots of conditioning? Listen and find out!
In addition we also talk about CTE and brain damage in the combat sports, MMA, boxing and grappling betting tips, the toughest guy that Mike has ever rolled with, the differences in BJJ training between Brazil and North America, whether the USA can ever catch up in BJJ, and Mike’s secret plan for building a future world champion!
I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did – it was a lot of fun with lots of great information.
