In this episode of The Strenuous Life Podcast I was thrilled to talk with the articulate and knowledgable Seph Smith.
Seph is a prolific competitor, was awarded his BJJ black belt by UFC fighter Ryan Hall, and has a black belt in Combat Sambo.
He has competed with and without the gi and in MMA as well.
We covered many topics including
- How to train leglocks safely,
- Competing in Judo and Sambo,
- Opening his own school and how to be a good teacher,
- Making instructional products,
- Dealing with potentially career-ending injuries,
- Future evolution of BJJ
- How to have a well rounded game,
- How to perform well under pressure,
- And much more.
