    Rosi Sexton – Injury Prevention for Combat Sports

    Rosi Sexton – Injury Prevention for Combat Sports

    Rosi Sexton is best known for her achievements in MMA having fought for all the major organisations including the UFC, becoming the first British woman to do so.  A qualified Osteopath, Rosi has now switched her focus from causing injuries to treating and preventing them!  Unsurprisingly Rosi has a particular interest in athletes involved in combat sports, so I thought it would be useful for many Eat Sleep Grow Repeat listeners to get her on the show.  Even if you are not involved in combat sports there is still a lot of interesting information within this episode.

    During the podcast we talk about Rosi’s MMA career and discuss the direction women’s MMA is heading in.  We then move onto discussing injury prevention and Rosi reveals her concerns about the wrestler’s bridge and tells us why even your grandma should be deadlifting!

    Leicester Shootfighters physio Karl Green also joins us to add his considerable knowledge to the conversation.  Karl has written several articles on the subject of injury prevention in BJJ and has treated numerous grapplers, including myself!

    Roli Delgado – on TUF, Frank Mir, Fighting in the UFC & Competition Training

    Roli Delgado – on TUF, Frank Mir, Fighting in the UFC & Competition Training

    I caught up with BJJ Blackbelt and former UFC and Bellator fighter Roli 'The Crazy Cuban' Delgado whilst he was in Leicester teaching his Legal Leglock's system.  Never considered a natural athlete, Roli's success in BJJ and MMA comes down to hard work and his analytical approach to learning and constantly developing his game.  This has led to him becoming an excellent coach and he now now co-owns Westside MMA in Arkansas.

    During the show we discuss Roli's career fighting on MMA's biggest shows, yet still struggling to make a living from the sport.  Roli talks about his time on The Ultimate Fighter and the controversy regarding Frank Mir questioning his Blackbelt.  He then gives us some great tips on keeping students engaged and attending class, keeping yourself motivated to constantly learn and provides an interesting pre-competition training strategy picked up from his time coaching in Naples.

    Trevor Birmingham & Liam Corrigan – Competition Game

    Trevor Birmingham & Liam Corrigan – Competition Game

    This is a special double episode with two of England's most successful JiuJitsu competitors, Trevor Birmingham and Liam Corrigan. Many of the guests from combat sports we have had on the show have stressed the importance of competing to enhance your progress in the game. Having recently started competing myself, I thought a podcast on the subject may be useful to anyone currently competing or thinking about testing themselves in the near future.

    Trevor Birmingham has been a successful competitor for over 30 years. Having begun in Judo were he enjoyed success at home and abroad, he then moved onto another rewarding spell representing Britain in Sport JiuJitsu. However, it is in Brazilian JiuJitsu that Trev is currently enjoying the most successful period of his career. In the past three years he has won gold at blue, purple and brown belt and graced the podium in nine different countries. Most recently he collected silver at the Master International in Rio after infamously being disqualified for celebrating his 7-0 win in the final with a flip. In this episode we talk about dealing with nerves, conditioning for competition and Trev talks us though his warm up routine before stepping onto the mats, plus of course we have to discuss that flip!

    Liam Corrigan is a relentless competitor, resulting in him winning countless medals over the past eight years, including 26 golds. His grappling career may have been even more fruitful had he not simultaneously juggled fighting in amateur MMA, where he amassed a 12-2 record, picking up four title belts along the way. Liam has competed in several countries and even quit his job to spend weeks travelling America and Brazil training and competing, which led to him fulfilling a lifetime ambition of writing a book on his experiences. We discuss how to work out your A game and when to start concentrating on it and mental preparation for the event. Liam also gives us his top three tips on competing plus shares his knowledge on combining travelling, training and competing in some of JiuJitsu biggest shows.

    If you want to know more about Trevor Birmingham check out his page at www.trev-bjj.net.  You can watch the controversial 'flip' final here.

    Vitor ‘Shaolin’ Ribeiro – BJJ Hero

    Vitor ‘Shaolin’ Ribeiro – BJJ Hero

    Vitor 'Shaolin' Ribeiro is a true Jiu-Jitsu legend.  His dedication to the art led to him achieving his black belt in an incredible 3.5 years!  Shaolin went on to win the World Jiu Jitsu Championship four times, was twice crowned Brazilian National Champion and took 3rd place in ADCC.  He then made the switch to MMA and the titles kept coming. Shaolin was crowned Cage Rage Lightweight Champion and Shooto Welterweight Champion over a successful nine year period fighting all over the globe.

    Since retiring from MMA in 2013, Shaolin is back competing in Jiu Jitsu and recently defeated Daisuke Nakamura in Polaris.  Whilst he was in the UK I took the chance to meet up with him for an interesting conversation in which we discuss mental training for BJJ, why America is the new Brazil for Jiu Jitsu globetrotters plus Shaolin give us his tips for achieving your black belt as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    Alex DeSouza – Living the Dream

    Alex DeSouza – Living the Dream

    Alex DeSouza is a name familiar to any follows of the early UK MMA and BJJ scenes. His life story is amazing and reminds me of the film ‘The Bruce Lee Story’ in that Alex managed to create a top class Dojo from nothing more than a dream and years of hard work and dedication to the sport. Despite running a business and holding his own successful competitions, Alex still find time to compete regularly picking up medals all over the world with and without the Gi. This level of commitment is due to be rewarded on 13th September when Alex is due to receive his 3rd Dan from the legendary Vitor ‘Shaolin’ Ribeiro.

    This episode is worth listening to just for Alex’s incredible life story which took him from no rules fights in the Amazon to introducing BJJ to the south of England and now running his own successful gym. Aside from that Alex gives us tips on how to run an outstanding competition and what you should consider when making a training trip to Brazil. We discuss supplementary training for JiuJitsu, the importance of competing and much more. This is an inspirational episode I’m sure you going to enjoy.

    The Sleep Guru – Pillow Talk

    For this episode focusing on getting a quality nights sleep, we were joined by Alison Francis, better known as Anandi or The Sleep Guru.  She is a qualified yoga instructor under Georg Feuerstein, a graduate of the Anthony Robbins University, an NLP practioner & hynopherapist and a qualified Primordial Sound Meditation Instructor under Deepak Chopra.  Anandi suffered from insomnia for nearly 15 years until she discovered the power of the breath which she credits with healing her.  She now runs workshops, retreats and online programmes for those suffering with sleep disorders, stress and anxiety.

    During a show packed with information, The Sleep Guru gives advice on how to meditate successfully, how to overcome insomnia and how to create a sleep haven, plus tells us how Sting was responsible for uncovering her spiritual side!  At the end of the interview I leave you with my top seven tips on optimising your sleep, then I hand over to my yoga and mediation instructor, Amy Fitta, to close the show with a Yoga Nidra meditation aimed at helping you get that vital, quality rest.
