This episode was recorded just days before JT claimed his 2nd consecutive ADCC World Championship title at 77kg. As you can imagine, him and I were crazy busy getting ready for our trip to Anaheim. We managed to squeeze in an episode just using the laptop internal microphone… So the audio is a little distant. Janky level 4 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the most janky. We talked about JT’s beginnings in martial arts. We talked about his academy in Hartsdale, NY. KP’s experience in the medical field when it comes to people shoving things in their butts. Hard ass training and random asthma attacks from pushing too hard. The proper mindset and etiquette during comp training. Training camp grumpiness. And of course we talked about ADCC and JT’s historic battles with Lucas Lepri.
