    #146 3 Lesson's from the Career of the GOAT | A Tribute to Leandro Lo

    Today the jiu-jitsu world woke up with terrible news. The loss of one of the Legends of the sport, Leandro Lo.   



    Lo had always been my favorite grappler and I just wanted to put a short episode together not focused on his death but his life and one of the best jiu-jitsu career's ever.  



    I hope some of the thoughts and stories shared in this episode are helpful.





    RIP Leandro Lo

Well worth it

Great show if you’re looking to frame your mentality, especially if you have no other source of information outside of techniques in the “real world”.
