Episode 24 – No-gi Worlds Part 1

Air Date: December 13, 2019

Recording from the FloGrappling table at IBJJF Nogi Worlds in Anaheim, CA, Josh put together a mish-mosh of short interviews with pretty much whoever was walking by the table at the right moment. Guests include the legendary Jackson Sousa, Robert Drysdale, Keenis Cornelius, Kristian Woodmansee, Nisar “Persian Papi” Loynab, as well as Hywel Teague. Jackson and Hywel gave us some very interesting insight on what it’s like to grow up in the Favela and how Jackson built a successful life and a career that allowed him to become one of the most recognized and well-respected names in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Kristian also gave us some parallel insights on his troubled childhood here in the USA. Both Jackson and Kristian now own their own academies in London and Philadelphia, respectively. These two guys are both great examples of success through hard work and perseverance. Robert Drysdale also drops some knowledge on us as well. Photo provided by FloGrappling. Huge thanks to the FloGrappling Crew for sharing their table space and power source with us.
