    Episode 159 - The Key Difference Between A Veteran and A Newbie

    Episode 159 - The Key Difference Between A Veteran and A Newbie

    On this episode, Chewy discusses something that he learned from the books With The Old Breed by Eugene Sledge and The Things Our Fathers Saw by Matthew Rozell.  The part that was interesting was the key difference between veterans and new soldiers and how the acceptance of the idea of death from the veteran soldiers allowed them to be more aggressive.
    And as it relates to BJJ, experienced grapplers who have accepted the possibility of losing are able to be more aggressive on the mats.
    We also answer one question that we received on Instagram: If we could go back and change one thing about our training habits to prevent injuries, what would it be?

Great Podcast for BJJ lovers

I was looking for a new Jiu-Jitsu podcast to listen to and came across this one, it’s absolutely brilliant as it’s not all about pro BJJ practitioners, or a professional competition as a few of the BJJ podcasts are but I find it’s more about experience that Chewy has been through, therefore anyone else could go through which makes it more engaging snd a down to Earth Podcast. The episode titled Going to war with yourself was brilliant and had effected me mentally as I strugggle with my weigh and diet (I should be about 10kg lighter then I am) so struggled against heavy bigger guys when I did a comp (my only comp to date, I’m 5’4 and competed at 69kg Blue belt division, I’m currently 75kg) I was in a weight class I never should have been in, that episode has helped my willingness and mental side to start to work to over come this...Thanks Chewy and Eugene, that has helped a lot, I will smash this and be at a suitable weight class for myself next time I compete 😁🤙🏻.
